George Armstrong played for Arsenal from 1961 - 1977. In 621 competitive games the winger scored 68 goals. He was, however, never called upon to play for his country.
Over his long career with the Gunners, Armstrong became one of Arsenal's most consistent players, who was noted for the quality and accuracy of his crossing and corner kicks, as well as for his tireless running up and down the wing. He primarily played on the left, but was also effective on the right.
Armstrong was at his peak between 1966 and 1974 (during which time Arsenal won the First Division title, the FA Cup and the Inter-Cities Fairs Cup). Unfortunately for Armstrong, this period coincided with a time when Alf Ramsey was England manager, and Ramsey famously insisted on playing with no winger.
Armstrong is rated number 40 in Arsenal's 50 greatest players list.
