U’s snap up former Liverpool stopper

Colchester United have completed the signing of goalkeeper, Shamal George, following his release from Premier League champions, Liverpool.

The Wirral-born keeper spent spells on loan with Tranmere Rovers and Carlisle United during his time at Anfield. The 22-year-old subsequently impressed U’s boss, Steve Ball, after featuring for the North Essex side during pre-season.

George has penned a two-year deal at the JobServe Community Stadium and will provide Dean Gerkin with competition for the goalkeepers’ jersey as Ball continues to build a squad capable of challenging in Sky Bet League Two over the coming months.
