Capable of performing at centre-back or as a defensive-midfielder, George possesses excellent leadership qualities and amassed a wealth of experience of youth-team football during his final season as a schoolboy.
Having made his U18 debut during the previous campaign, he became something of a regular at that level last season, making 20 appearances and scoring three goals. The promising youngster, who came through the club’s Hale End academy, was also named on the bench in the UEFA Youth League and made his FA Youth Cup debut as a substitute away to Charlton Athletic.
He should be a key player at that level again this season and may also break into the U21 team, having featured for the second-string during pre-season.
