player bio

Wide attacking midfielder who can also play as a striker who rejoined the club in June 2020 after a three-year spell at local rivals Chasetown

A locally-based player from Cannock, George started his career as a trainee at West Bromwich Albion, but failed to make a first-team appearance whilst at the Hawthorns and was released in the summer of 2015

After spending the summer on trial at the likes of Stoke City and Barnsley, Cater eventually joined Vanarama National League side Kidderminster Harriers after a successful trial at Aggborough. However, he only made one first-team appearance for Harriers and was loaned out to Evo-Stik Division One South side Stafford Rangers, initially on a month's loan. This was extended to a further month after Cater had impressed with four goals in eleven appearances at Marston Road

After being released by Kidderminster in January 2016, he linked up with Stafford once more on a permanent deal until the end of the season. He helped Neil Kitching's Rangers side to the title and promotion once more to step three ahead of the 2016-2017 season, penning a new deal for the forthcoming season. However, his appearances had been limited as the season had progressed and joined his hometown team on a permanent deal in March 2017 ahead of the Pitmen's home game with Workington

Despite spending much of the remainder of the season on the bench, Cater was offered a new deal by the Pitmen in May 2017 for the new season for the 2017-2018 season by new manager Neil Tooth. However, after playing in a number of the club's pre-season friendlies, Cater was allowed to join Chaestown in August 2017

In the next three seasons, Cater enjoyed consistent campaigns at Church Lane and averaged a goal every three games during his time with the Scholars, scoring a career-best sixteen goals in 2019-2020 until the season was brought to a halt in March 2020 due to the coronavirus pandemic

In June 2020, Cater was subject to a number of offers from sides at step three in recognition of his form at Chasetown but elected to return to his hometown club after meeting with manager Andy Morrell and signing a new deal with the Pitmen
