Manchester United legend George Best's link with the Orange Order - collarette to go on show at new museum

BY NEVIN FARRELL – 22 JUNE 2015
He mesmerised millions every football season, but the young George Best once enjoyed the marching season too.

And the star who become famous wearing the red jersey of Manchester United once wore a black collarette as a member of the Junior Royal Black Institution.

The footballer's collarette is a key exhibit at a new Orange Order museum which opens to the public in Belfast on Wednesday.

And perhaps fittingly there is a touch of red on the historic collarette.

The collarette was kindly donated by the Best family and is sure to be of great interest to museum visitors.

As a young boy George carried the strings of the banner for the local Orange lodge in the Cregagh area, while his father Dickie was worshipful master.

George was also a member of the Loyal Orders and in one of his autobiographies, Best, he recalled how important the Twelfth was to his family.

I think they have got it wrong about the 'black' collarette. I don't think there was a junior Black.
