Robert George came on a substitute for the Under 17 team in their
2-1 defeat at home to Peterborough on 24th April 1999. Robert
played regularly for the Youths in 1999/2000 but was not taken
on and joined Great Yarmouth Town in the summer of 2000.
Robert had a trial with Swindon Town in March 2002. He later
trialled with Fulham. In April 2003, he accompanied three other
former Canaries (Danny Self, John
Sutton and Jamie Window) on a trial
for Cambridge United. In all there were seven triallists in United's
reserve team clash with Reading on 9th April 2003 which they lost
3-2 with Jamie Cureton scoring Reading's
winner. The other triallists were Shaun Humphries (Stoke), Liam
Kearney (Notts Forest) and Chris Wild (Orient).
George then played for Southend's Reserves against their counterparts
from Gillingham the following week. Southend's 4-0 victory included
a Robert George hat-trick. He stayed on at Roots Hall and played
on 16th April in a reserve team clash that saw Bristol City's
reserves trounce the Shrimpers.
Robert was Yarmouth's leading scorer in 2001/02 and 2002/03 and
terrified opponents with his commitment and electrifying pace.
Rob later played for Walton & Hersham in the Ryman League
before moving to neighbours Met Police in June 2008
