Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. George "Geordie" Armstrong was an English football player and coach, primarily associated with Arsenal. Born in Hebburn, County Durham, Armstrong had trained as an electrician while playing in youth football, and was rejected by both Newcastle United and Grimsby Town. Nevertheless, he succeeded in joining Arsenal as a youth player in August 1961. Initially he had been a forward but was soon switched to the wing. He made his debut not long after joining the club; while still only 17, he started against Blackpool on 24 February 1962 in a match that Arsenal won 1-0. Although he started out as understudy to Johnny MacLeod and Alan Skirton, by the 1963-64 season he had become a regular in the side, and in 1964-65 he missed only two matches.
