Barry Town United are delighted to announce the signing of Michael George, who returns to his hometown club to become our second signing of the January transfer window.
The versatile and hard working player first joined Barry in 2016 where he initially signed for the Development Team. However, after impressing first team staff, Mikey was awarded his senior debut later that year in a 7-1 win against Haverfordwest. Our new signing went on to sign his first senior contract with the club in 2018 following our promotion to the JD Cymru Premier League.
Prior to his second spell with us in 2020, moreover, George enjoyed a successful season at Penybont, where he made 25 appearances.
George returns to the club with much experience of Welsh football, including 53 appearances in the top-flight. The latest addition to the squad can play both full-back and centre-midfield which will add much strength to the Squad.
Gavin Chesterfield commented: “I’m delighted to confirm the return of Mikey. He’s a Barry boy that has always given his all for our club. Both Mikey and I feel that he has much unfinished business in a Barry Town shirt, he adds much versatility and I’m excited to have him back with us.”
Welcome home Mikey!
