We are pleased to announce the loan signing of George Tanner from Manchester United for the remainder of the 2019-20 season!

The defender has spent the first half of this season on loan at fellow League Two side Morecambe where he made 29 appearances, including against us in the 2-2 draw at The Globe Arena in September.

It was the 20-year-old’s first taste of senior football having graduated through United’s academy, and the youngster says he is looking forward to continue developing at The Peninsula Stadium.

“I think Salford are pushing for promotion, that’s their main aim whereas at Morecambe they are in a relegation battle so it’s completely different, and I look forward to a new challenge.

“I’ve really enjoyed it, managed to play 29 games in the space of six months so it’s been quite hectic, I’ve learned a lot from those games.

“I’m a right back, I like to think I’m a modern day right back so I like to get forward and defend obviously, so whatever I can add to the team is probably going to be bombing forward, getting forward, getting crosses into the box and then obviously defending.

“League Two is completely different to Under-23s football so I’m glad I’ve experienced it and it sets me in good stead for the future. It gives me that experience, I’ve got 29 games under my belt so far and hopefully I can get some more games under my belt before the end of the year.”

Welcome George, and we wish you a successful stay with us here at The Peninsula Stadium!
