George Marks

George Marks spent 10 years with the Club but only made two senior appearances, mainly due to the outbreak of the Second World War.

The goalkeeper joined in 1936 but immediately went out on loan to Arsenal’s nursery club, Margate. After returning to the Gunners, he was used as an understudy to George Swindin and Alex Wilson but did play in the final two games of the 1938/39 season, against Derby and Brentford respectively.
