A forward-thinking midfielder, George was signed from Barnsley during the summer of 2016.

He scored regularly at youth level for the Tykes and, following a 20-goal haul during the 2013/14 season, was offered a first professional contract. George made his first-team debut for the Tykes in April 2015, with the 23-year old going on to make four appearances for the Yorkshire club. Prior to arriving at the Abbey Stadium on a one-year deal, he enjoyed loan spells with Nuneaton, Guiseley and then Lincoln, where he netted twice in 13 matches. George, who is best deployed in a central attacking role, has now made over 100 appearances for United, also netting an impressive 21 goals by the close of last season. An undoubted talent, he penned a further two-year deal with the U’s in April 2017 and renewed that contract during the summer of 2019. George will now play his football with United until June 2021.
