George Porter Joins Rochdale

31 January 2014

Manager Keith Hill has bolstered his attacking options with the signing of George Porter.

The former Burnley winger has penned a short-term deal until the end of the season.

George, who is 21 years old, began his career at Cray Wanderers and after impressing during his time at the non-league side, he attracted interest from a number of Football League clubs and went on to join Leyton Orient in the summer of 2010.

He made 34 first team appearances for the O’s, and notched up a further 26 appearances while out on loan at Lewes and Hastings United.

George joined Burnley from the O’s in 2012 for an undisclosed fee and has enjoyed loan spells at Colchester United, and more recently at AFC Wimbledon, during his time with the Championship club. He featured 21 times for AF C Wimbledon this season.

Manager Keith Hill commented: “George is a good player, he’s a pedigree and he’s technically very good. I think it’s a great signing from our perspective because he’s already got games under his belt this season with AFC Wimbledon.

“He’ll also bring pace - a ridiculous amount of pace. We’ve already got pace but I wanted to add a little bit more to the squad. It’s going to enhance us in the last 19 games of the season.”

George has been given squad number 15.
