George Peckham Beachcroft was an influential early administrator of the Richmond Football Club.[1][2]

He served as club secretary from on or before 1900 until 1905, when Richmond was in the Victorian Football Association (VFA). During his tenure the club won the VFA premierships of 1902 and 1905. With the club now in the Victorian Football League (VFL), the election of Jack Archer's reform group saw Beachcroft return to Richmond, once again as club secretary, for one season in 1912. He was also secretary of the Melbourne Football Club for one season, in 1907.[3]

He was made a life member of the Richmond Football Club in 1906.[4]
