Young Manchester United keeper George Dorrington was handed another chance to impress for Huddersfield Town when he turned out in the Under 21s’ Professional Development League II game at Coventry City.

The Bristol-born 18-year-old was snapped up by the Old Trafford giants in 2013, and has had to overcome a number of growing-related problems.

“He’s been unfortunate as he’s had a lot of growth injuries that have hindered his progress,” explained United academy goalkeeping coach Alan Fettis.

“When he came into the system from a local amateur club in Bristol, he was a little behind technically but he plays the game well and understands his position.

“He knows how to get his body in front of the ball and can distribute it pretty accurately with both feet.

“George is a good worker and somebody who will do what you want. That is why he will improve.

“He has a great personality and character. He is a popular lad in the dressing room.”

Dorrington, who had a loan spell with Newcastle United last season, played for Town Under 21s in their 2-1 home win over Cardiff City a week ago.

He saved a penalty during the John Smith’s Stadium clash.

Frankie Bunn’s side are already through to the PDL II play-offs.
