George Nunn is a left-sided attacking player who joined our Academy from Crewe Alexandra at the end of his Under-16 year.

He was initially spotted by our national recruitment team and was monitored closely as someone who can play anywhere across the front three. A good mover, he is a bright and intelligent footballer with good technique. He signed his first professional contract at the club in November 2018.

Nunn enjoyed a solid first season at the club in 2018/19, making 25 appearances. The first of his nine goals of the campaign came in the season opener away at Southampton, while he also featured on three occasions for our Under-19s in the UEFA Youth League as we reached the final for the second year running. His development squad debut came as a late substitute in a 1-0 win at Derby County in February.

The international stage came calling for Nunn in October 2019 when he made his Republic of Ireland Under-19s debut in a single goal defeat against Denmark. In January 2020 the forward signed a new contract at the Blues which keeps him at the club until the end of June 2022.
