It measures in at a large and impressive 40cm by 30cm and is supplied with a smaller photo of Charlie signing. Signed in May 2008, this is a super item of signed Charlie George memorabilia that would make a great gift.
Born in Islington, London, George supported Arsenal as a boy and played for Islington Schoolboys before joining his favoured club in May 1966. He turned professional in 1968 and made his first-team debut for the club on August 9, 1969. He became a regular in the side that season, playing 39 times, including in Arsenal's 1969-70 Inter-Cities Fairs Cup campaign. The following season broke his ankle after being out for five months and played a significant part in Arsenal's run-in to the 1970-71 Division One title, scoring five times in 17 appearances in the League. However, the highlight of his season came in the FA Cup; he scored in the fourth, fifth and sixth rounds as well as proving the difference in the Final against Liverpool. The game was locked at 1-1 in extra time, Arsenal having been 1-0 down before Eddie Kelly's equaliser; in the 111th minute George latched onto John Radford's square ball and scored a spectacular winner from 20 yards to win the match. He famously celebrated by lying flat on his back with arms aloft. With that Cup win, Arsenal completed their first Double win. This great item of signed Charlie George memorabilia celebrates this famous moment in Arsenal’s history. It shows the famous moment when Charlie was laying on his back waiting for his teammates celebrations. Unusually the print is black and white with George in colour. It is personally signed by George and there is a description of the game and print listed under the image.
