Prolific Goalscorer Joins From Urchins

We are delighted to announce the signing of 31-year-old striker George Purcell who joins the club from Bostik Premier side AFC Hornchurch.

Purcell is the Urchins' all-time record goalscorer, notching 149 times in 279 appearances.

Having played youth team football for Gillingham, he went on to play for the likes of Ebbsfleet United, Braintree Town, York City, Dartford and Tonbridge Angels.

He joined AFC Hornchurch from Margate in July 2013, going on to finish each of the six seasons he spent at Bridge Avenue as the clubs top scorer.

We welcome George to the club and wish him a successful next stage of his goal-filled career with the Gulls.
