Newcastle signed George for a new British record fee of £1,600 from Everton. His spell at Goodison Park ended in acrimonious circumstances but the smile was soon back on the face of the player known as 'Smiler' on Tyneside. He operated on the left-side of the attack as the Magpies enjoyed fantastic success in the First Division and FA Cup.
