A forward-thinking midfielder signed from Barnsley this summer, George swells the attacking options available to Shaun Derry. Starting his career in the Tykes under-15 side, he scored regularly at youth level and, following a 20-goal haul during the 2013/14 season, was offered a first professional contract.

Ironically, a first-team debut in April 2015 saw George replace current U’s Captain Luke Berry - then at Barnsley - as a substitute, with the 20-year old going on to make four appearances for the Yorkshire club. Prior to arriving at the Cambs Glass Stadium on a one-year deal, he enjoyed loan spells with Nuneaton, Guiseley and for the final three months of last season, Lincoln, where he netted twice in 13 matches.
