Pitching In Southern League Premier Division Central club Bedford Town have announced the signing of midfielder George Thorne.

The 29-year-old, who represented England at under-16, 17, 18 and under-19 level, arrives at The Eyrie having played over 50 games in the Championship for Derby County and a dozen in the Premier League for West Bromwich Albion.

His six years at Derby were hit with injury, but he had successful seasons at Pride Park including the Rams run to the play-off final in 2019.

He also had loan spells with Portsmouth twice, Peterborough United, Luton Town, Watford and Oxford United.

He left the professional game last summer after a short spell with Oxford United and, having taken some time away from football, now returns to the game to help drive the Eagles forward.

Manager Gary Setchell told his club’s website: “I’m really happy we’ve managed to attract a player of George’s quality to The Eyrie. He has an abundance of experience having played in the Championship and Premier League. This experience in the dressing room will prove crucial as we continue to develop the side”.
