Profile: Liam George, #0
Player statistics are not complete...
Liam is from a mixed background, his father was born in St. Lucia, whilst his mother was born in Dublin.

In 1998, George represented Ireland in the UEFA Under-18 Youth Championships, alongside Robbie Keane, Richard Dunne and Stephen McPhail, reaching the final against Germany. The game went to penalties and, with the score at 3-3, George slotted home the winner to make it 4-3.

The striker started his career at his hometown club of Luton Town. After a prolific couple of seasons in the youth and second-string Luton sides, he made his debut in 1997, going on to make over 100 appearances for The Hatters.

At the beginning of the 2001/02 season, Liam turned down a new contract at Kenilworth Road and signed on a week-to-week contract. He almost signed for Colchester in November 2001, however he failed a medical at the deal to Layer Road fell through.

On his return to Kenilworth Road, he was told he could leave and his contract was paid up in full. After trials at Gillingham, Sheffield United, Leyton Orient and Clydebank, George eventually settled down at Stevenage Borough, linking up with former Luton assistant manager Wayne Turner just before the transfer deadline.

His stay at Broadhall Way wasn't long, and he left the following summer after just four appearances. The ex-Ireland youth international then had a three-month stint at Bury and then onto Boston United.

St. Pat's Athletic was Liam's third club of the 2002/03 season.

Following a succesful trial at Bootham Crescent, he signed a one-year deal with York City - then in Division 3. However, the Minstermen were relegated at the end of the 2003/04 season, the first time in the clubs history.

Having only scored 3 goals in over 20 appearances, Liam was told by manager Chris Brass that he would not be offered a new contract and he departed Bootham Crescent and signed for The Blues on 12th August 2004 - his seventh club in just over a year.

Signing a one-year contract, Liam joined the blues along with Dean Brennan who joined from Stevenage.

In February 2005, Liam was made available for transfer or loan along with Martin Carthy, Carl Emberson, Gavin Heeroo and Vill Powell.

St. Albans City made an offer to take Liam on loan for a month in March 2005 after his move at The Rec didn't work.

He then had spells at Stotfold, Dunstable Town and AFC Wimbledon before a move across the pond to USL First Division side, the Atlanta Silverbacks in March 2006.

The USL-1, as it is commonly known as is the second division of soccer in the United States and Canada league pyramid behind the MLS, although there is no promotion or relegation system in place.

After 22 appearances and 3 goals for the Silverbacks, Liam signed for Southern League side Chesham United towards the end of November 2006 - linking up with ex-Blue Dean Brennan.

Looking for a return to League football, he left The Generals to join Wycombe Wanderers on trial.

In December 2006, Liam moved to Conference South outfit Eastleigh. Before making a suprise moved back to Luton Town trial basis and appeared as a substitute for the last 25 minutes in a Reserve team match at Leyton Orient.

However, Reserve team manager Marvin Johnson later confirmed that Liam had simply been training with the Hatters to keep fit and, with Luton's Youth team playing in the FA Youth Cup the following day, the Hatters were short of players and so Liam helped out by making up the numbers for the clash at Brisbane Road.

He then moved back to Eastleigh before short spells at Hyde United and FC United of Manchester in the 2007/08 season.

Liam is currently playing for Barton Rovers in the Southern Division One Midlands League on a part-time basis, whilst studying Physiotherapy as a mature student at the University of Salford.
