Football administrator George Dick dies
Football Federation Australia says former Oceania Football
Confederation vice president George Dick has died. He was 81.
Scottish-born Dick migrated to New Zealand where he was selected
to play for the national team, but did not make an appearance, the
FFA said Thursday. He moved to Australia in 1960 and held
administrative positions locally before becoming project manager
for the FIFA World Youth Cup in Australia in 1993.
Besides his OFC vice-presidency duties, he also held
administrative positions with FFA until 2006 and was inducted in
Australia’s Football Hall of Fame in 2008.
He is survived by his wife, Thelma, and three sons.
