Ryman League Division One South side Lewes has snapped up released Crystal Palace fullback Matthew George.
George, 20, was on professional terms at Palace until he was released in the summer.
He impressed manager Darren Freeman during the Rooks' pre-season friendly with Crawley Town and the boss is delighted to have secured his signature before the start of the season.
“It's brilliant to secure someone who has just come out of the Premier League," said Freeman to the Lewes website.
George will go straight into the squad for today's visit to Burgess Hill Town.
