Grimsby Town have signed former Swindon Town midfielder George McEachran on a two-year deal.

The 23-year-old was released by the Robins earlier this summer after making 42 appearances in all competitions in 2023-24.

McEachran came through Chelsea's academy and was part of the England team that won the Under-17 World Cup in 2017.

"George is a technically terrific player. (Head of recruitment) Joe Hutchinson had him with the England U17s and told me all about his character, which is important," boss Dave Artell told the club website.
