It is with great sadness that we report the sudden death of George Eddington. George had been a Member of Liberton for a number of years. He was an active playing member and regularly represented Liberton in the Senior team matches. George was well liked and respected by all who knew him and our thoughts go out to his family.
Funeral arrangements will be posted when they are known.
