Manchester United sent their young goalkeeper George Dorrington to Championship club Huddersfield for a trial as their first choice goalkeeper Joe Murphy is out of action due to injury. Huddersfield chairman Dean Hoyle has confirmed that the club is looking out to sign two keepers in summer, as Murphy is set to be out of action at the start of next season as well after undergoing a shoulder injury.
Manchester United academy coach Alan Fettis describes Dorrington as-
“Someone who can distribute well from the back and adds a good physical presence to his side.”
Dorrington came through Manchester United Academy and is said to be a good presence in the field. The player has been with the United for a long time, as such he has not made any first team appearances for United, he did make two appearances in the UEFA youth league earlier this season. The player was also loaned out to Newcastle’s under-18 side, however, he was not able to outshine at the club due to excessive competition.
