George Mitchell T/A George Shaw

Another iconic figure in the Scottish Bookmaking scene says goodbye.

Peacefully at home, on Wednesday, the beautiful, generous, extrovert man, that was George Mitchell passed away.

George Snr, had been on the Scottish racing scene, (Horse & Greyhounds) for over 60 years.

He was a 'real', old fashioned style bookmaker, always taking on the market leaders. Always had a smile on his face, would treat everyone as a friend, and was great fun to be around. He certainly was a unique character, a complete one -off.
