Slough Town have signed 20-year-old midfielder George Hunt following his release from Championship side AFC Bournemouth.
Hunt, who was born at Wexham Park Hospital and is a Slough resident, turned down interest and offers from Championship and League One clubs to sign for Slough as he wants to prove himself in senior football.
He has an exciting academy pedigree, having spent two years at Coventry City as a scholar before more recently joining AFC Bournemouth’s u23s set up. There he worked under former Weymouth manager Mark Molesley, who highly recommended him to the club.
“George has been training with us in pre-season and has impressed everyone with his quality, work-rate and all-round attitude, and we believe he will be a big asset to the club,” Neil Baker told the club’s website.
“He has turned down offers from Championship and League One clubs to join their U23 setups because his aim now is to prove himself in senior football, and we are delighted he has agreed to join Slough despite attention from other clubs.”
