Tottenham, London born amateur  goalkeeper George Burdett was with the Royal Fusiliers before joining Arsenal in August 1910, as understudy to Edwin Bateup, making his Football League debut against Everton in March 1911, thereafter playing 10 times in his debut campaign, keeping six clean sheets. George Burdett enjoyed almost half a season as Woolwich Arsenal’s first-choice goalkeeper in 1911-12 but lost his place to Sidney Crawford in January 1912.

After 28 appearances he left the club in 1912 or 1913 (he features in Arsenal’s 1912-13 team photograph) and joined The Royal Artillery. During the First World War he served as a Gunner in The Royal Garrison Artillery.

NB the photograph was taken in the match at The Manor Ground, Woolwich in the first match of the 1911-12 season. The opponents, Liverpool, wear blue stripes (which was their change strip either side of the First World War). Burdett punches clear during a Liverpool attack. The match finished a 2-2 draw.
