George Chatterton started playing rugby at Manchester Rugby Club from the age of nine and it was a sport the scrum half was always destined to enter.

His brother Patrick and father persuaded George to take up the sport and he would go on to captain Stockport Grammar School where he was also head boy.

He joined Sale Sharks academy at 14 and helped guide the academy team to the U18s Premiership Rugby Academy Final, losing to a Marcus Smith-inspired Harlequins at Sixways.

George made his Sale Jets debut against Northampton Saints in April 2017 in the Premiership A League.

And the talented youngster went on to make his debut for England Sevens at a European Grand Prix in Clermont in June 2017.

George described one of his proudest moments as representing England at Exeter’s Sandy Park while his grandparents watched on.

The Stockport-born talent describes New Zealand’s World Cup-winning centre Sonny Bill Williams and Kiwi fly-half Carlos Spencer as his idols growing up.

But George has also hailed the influence Manchester Rugby Club coaches Ian Thompson and Simon Ogdon made on his young career, giving him all the skills he needed.

Not only rugby mad, George is also a keen cricketer and loves watching T20 and also enjoys taking in tennis at Wimbledon.
