George Ross (15 April 1943 – 7 May 2016) was a Scottish footballer who played as a full-back in the Football League during the 1960s and 1970s, most notably with Preston North End. Surprisingly, Ross never started his senior professional football career with any of the three Highland Football League Clubs in Inverness at that time, and went south to Preston as a schoolboy.
In April 2009, he was honoured with a Lifetime Achievement award by Preston, and he worked for them in the commercial department on matchdays.
Ross died on 7 May 2016, aged 73.
