CHORLEY FC are delighted to confirm that George Horbury has signed on with the Magpies following his recent departure from Harrogate Town.

Having come through the youth ranks at Harrogate Town, George signed a professional contract with his hometown club in June 2022.

The 20-year old made two competitive appearances for the Sulphurites before spending time out on loan at Marske United, then moving on to a spell at Vanarama National League North rivals, Buxton.

From there, George spent the second-half of the 2023/24 season with the Magpies, making 17 appearances in all - including a stellar, Man of the Match display against Solihull Moors in the FA Trophy.

Manager, Andy Preece, had the following to say upon completion of the deal.

"First and foremost I'm delighted to have secured the services of George on a permanent basis. For me, it was a no brainer to bring him in after he was let go by Harrogate.

Obviously, a lot of supporters will have seen a bit of what George can bring to our squad but equally, I think he has a lot more to offer and he's got an awful lot of potential as a player.

George has come in to us fitter and stronger than he was last season, a lot of hard work has been put in during the off-season and he's only going to get better with us."

Congratulations George and welcome back to Chorley Football Club, we can't wait to see you out on the pitch in the famous black and white stripes!
