George Anton Nicholas (born 19 December 1992) is an English semi-professional footballer. He currently plays for Isthmian League side Harrow Borough who he joined in the summer of 2016. Nicholas also had a short stint at Wealdstone who he joined following his release from Notts County, before spending three years at Northwood.[1][2]

Career[edit]

Nicholas made his debut for Notts County on 7 May 2011 in a 1–1 draw against Brighton & Hove Albion.[3]

In September, he joined Lewes on loan, initially for a monthlong period.[4]

In May 2012 he was released by Notts County, along with 12 other players.[5]

He signed for Wealdstone after impressing during the 2012-13 pre-season and made three league substitute appearances for the club. Nicholas then joined Southern Football League club Northwood in January 2013, making his début in a defeat to Aylesbury.

Nicholas scored his first goal for Northwood with a 25-yard strike against Barton Rovers on 9 February 2013, and then scored his second on 9 March against Leighton Town. Injuries however limited him to only nine league appearances during his time at the Woods and his loan spell expired at the end of the 2012/13 season.

He signed on a permanent basis for Northwood in the summer of 2013.[6] Having sustained an injury in September 2014, Nicholas returned to fitness in January 2015 playing a few more times. However, Nicholas took a break from football with Northwood in late January 2015 to take up the opportunity of modelling in New York.[7] Nicholas made his return to Northwood as a substitute, coming on in a 3-2 home win over Aylesbury United on 11 April 2015.

In the summer of 2016 Nicholas moved up a division to sign for Isthmian League Premier Division side Harrow Borough, along with Northwood teammates Andy Lomas, Max Holland and Steve Brown.[8]
