A forward-thinking midfielder signed from Barnsley last 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. George bagged his first goal for United in the home fixture with Wycombe last November.
