“Happy birthday to the Belfast Boy George Best true Legend”. Alan Mcfadden

 

“70 years ago today, a star was sent from heaven above,

it landed in a place called Belfast, a son for Mr and Mrs Best to love.

The Lord named him George and he gave him a gift,

to entertain the people and a special cup to lift.

He did the lords will, with a talent so rare,

and an attitude that the devil may care.

The people they loved him, everyone knew his name,

he was the hero of the terraces a magnet for fortune and fame.

Well the years they did fly, and the managers did cry,

for the soul that was troubled and sore.

Till the dreaded day dawned and he played till the end, and the star could shine no more.

Happy Birthday George, thanks for the memories xxxx”. June Hagan

 

Best, who won the European Cup with Manchester United in 1968, was born in Belfast on May 22, 1946.

 

Happy 70th Birthday George. Thanks for the magical moments. You will never be forgotten.
