Authentic Signed Charlie George Photos, Frames, Mounts and Displays
Charlie George is an English former footballer. He played as a forward in the Football League (notably for Arsenal and Derby County) and he was also capped by England. He turned professional in 1968 and made his first-team debut for Arsenal on 9 August 1969 against Everton. He became a regular in the side that season, playing 39 times, including in Arsenal's 1969-70 Inter-Cities Fairs Cup campaign; he scored goals against Dinamo Bacau and Ajax, as well as playing in both legs of the final against RSC Anderlecht, which Arsenal won 4:3 on aggregate.
George broke his ankle at the start of the following season but returned after being out for five months and played a significant part in Arsenal's run-in to the 1970-71 Division One title, scoring five times in 17 appearances in the League. However, the highlight of his season came in the FA Cup; he scored in the fourth, fifth and sixth rounds as well as proving the difference in the Final against Liverpool. The game was locked at 1:1 in extra time, Arsenal having been 1:0 down before Kelly's equaliser; in the 111th minute George latched onto John Radford's square ball and scored a spectacular winner from 20 yards to win the match. He celebrated by lying flat on his back with arms aloft. With that Cup win, Arsenal completed their first Double win.
