Biographical Text

George Guyan, who had previously appeared for Dundee, South Shields and Hull, scored fourteen times in twenty-eight league games for Exeter City in 1929/30. He joined the club from Connah's Quay Nomads and later played for Swindon Town and Rochdale.

A strong, bustling centre-forward, George’s first senior club was Dundee whom he joined from junior outfit Banks o’Dee. He subsequently moved south in 1923 to link up with South Shields where, in three seasons, he netted 11 goals in 50 Third Division North appearances. Moving next for ‘an undisclosed fee’ to Hull City in December 1926, George added nine league goals to his career total from 19 starts.

Spending the 1928/29 campaign in the Welsh National League with Connah’s Quay Nomads, George switched to Exeter City in June 1929 and made a goalscoring debut in the opening fixture of the season against Luton Town. Although he only played in two-thirds of the league fixtures - and none after mid-March - George netted 14 goals as he formed a goalscoring partnership with Cyril Hemingway who top-scored with nineteen league strikes. 

Yet George was soon on the move again as he spent the 1930/31 season at Swindon Town where he made just two league appearances before a similarly unproductive single-season stay at Rochdale ahead of finishing his career at Bath City and Drumcondra in Dublin.
