Francomb Returns To Dons

Ex-Norwich City full back, George Francomb has signed for AFC Wimbledon after being released by the Canaries. Francomb spent much of last season on loan at Wimbledon and it seems that he was very well thought of by staff and fans alike.

Dons manager, Neal Ardley spoke to his club's official site and said:

"We were very sorry to lose George when he went back to Norwich because he was probably the highlight for us in a struggling team at the time. I really enjoyed working with him then because you could see the quality that he had. As soon as I knew that the player would be leaving Norwich I threw my hat into the ring. I spoke to his agent in early May because I knew that I would have to do a bit of work to get him. I had to try and put the budget in place so that we could make an offer that could bring George back here.

"I am delighted that George has joined and he is a great signing for the club. We have spoken at length about where he should play and his role in the team. I see him playing in a more advanced midfield role, which I know he prefers to play. We want to develop George's game in the final third because he has a great right foot and great delivery. Hopefully he can make more assists and chip in with more goals. George said he loved playing here for the Wimbledon fans and he knows what to do so that he can develop as a player in the next few years.'

It seems that Francomb will be developed as a midfield/wing player despite City having previously used him as a right back.

It goes without saying that we wish George all the best in his future career.
