Peter George

Cornwall FA deeply saddened to learn of passing of Peter George

Peter was a long time Cornwall County FA Council member and only a couple of years was elected as a life member of the Association following many years of service.

Peter served as the President of The Referee’s Association and himself refereed The Senior Cup Final, the pinnacle of any Cornish referees career, it was in his role as referees representative that he served on Cornwall FA Council, but he contributed in so many ways to Football in the County.

Peter never missed a Cornwall representative match and despite his poor health was travelling with the side as recently as our away trip to Kent in 2017, he was always great company on the trips and loved supporting the County teams. his commitment and passion was second to none.

The cliché “they don’t make them like that anymore” is certainly true of Peter, he was a kind and generous man who made a huge impact on not only football in Cornwall but also on the people he met within the game.

Cornwall FA Chief Executive Dawn Aberdeen “Peter was always available for a chat and to offer a word of advice, he was extremely passionate and knowledgeable, and was a highly respected member of Cornwall FA for many years”

Our condolences go to Peter’s wife Anita and all his family at this sad time.
