The 62 year old has been captain of the Birmingham Efficiency side for 20 years – guiding them to the Premier Division Championship for the past 12 years.

The legendary Hicks was also skipper of the side who won the league and cup double on an amazing eight occasions.

Last week the Solihull-based club presented George with a commemorative plaque which will be displayed in the club.

Teammate Paul Dukes-Thomas paid tribute to the long-serving captain with an amusing speech about incidents and memories over the years.

He also presented Hicks with a cut glass decanter from the players as a memento of their time together.

The evening was rounded off with a fun snooker knock-out competition which was won by Dukes-Thomas who overcame Kevin Richards in the final.

Dukes-Thomas knocked out his former captain in the second round of an interesting competition.
