Birmingham born inside forward George Morrall started his football career with Sparkhill Avondale in 1909 and played for Redditch Town and Nuneaton Town prior to the First World War, and he won the Birmingham Combination Championship with both clubs as well as England Junior International honours against Scotland. After the War he signed for Second Division club Hull City in 1919 from Blackheath Town, whom he had joined a year previously. He made his Football League debut at Birmingham in August 1919, scoring 17 times in 36 appearances at inside left for Hull City that season, only one League goal behind The Tigers’ leading scorer Sammy Stevens. His haul included a hat-trick in a 5-1 win over Leicester City in February 1920.

However he played only twice more for The Tigers in the early stages of the next campaign before being transferred to Third Division club Grimsby Town in September 1920 after 38 appearances for Hull City, scoring on his Grimsby debut at home to Bristol Rovers in a 3-1 victory. His two seasons with The Mariners saw him operate about evenly between the inside left and inside right berths, scoring 8 goals in 71 appearances for them, and he helped Grimsby to finish third in the Third Division (North) in 1921-22 (they were reallocated to the Northern section in 1921 on its formation) before he returned to non league Midlands football with his former club Redditch Town in the 1922 close season, subsequently joining Brierley Hill Alliance the following year, his final club before his eventual retirement.
