Porter is latest ex-Claret on the move
Following the news earlier today of Richard Duffy signing for Notts County, winger George Porter, who the Clarets signed from Leyton Orient in 2012, is also changing club with a move to Bromley from Welling United where he played last season.
Leyton Orient plucked him from non-league football and although he started only nine league games for them it was enough to persuade Burnley to bring him to Turf Moor ahead of the 2012/13 season. However, he was with us for only a season and a half without having kicked a ball for us competitively and saw his contract terminated by mutual consent having had loans with Colchester and Wimbledon, from where he was sent back early.
He moved to Rochdale on a short term deal before moving to Dagenham & Redbridge in August 2014 on a one year deal but again his contract was terminated by mutual consent and he joined Maidstone.
He’s spent the last season at Welling, making over 30 appearances for the team that finished bottom of the National League, but has now moved to Bromley who finished in 14th place in the same league.
Bromley manager Neil Smith said on completing the signing: “George is a young versatile player who can play as a winger or striker. He has had a taste of league football and wants to get back there. I am delighted he has joined our club.”
Porter said after joining his new club for the first day of pre-season training: “It’s great to be here. I’ve met the staff and players at training today. It’s a great set up and the club is clearly going places in a big way, the training ground is superb and I cannot wait to get started.”Share this page :
