George was signed from Dalkeith Thistle. He became established as a regular in the side during the following season but still just twenty years old, United accepted an offer of 1,000 from Portsmouth. More than three years later, he was back at Tannadice after a time in Ireland with Bray Unknowns. He became a regular in the United line up over the next five years until he was released in April 1937 to join Leith Athletic. During WW2, George returned to play for United again briefly.
