Porter, who plays as a winger or striker, began his career at Cray Wanderers in 2009 and following a number of impressive displays attracted interest from several Football League clubs before signing for Leyton Orient in 2010.Bromley fc

He played against Bromley in the FA Cup First Round tie at Leyton Orient in 2011 where he scored his debut goal for Orient.

Porter was then signed by Burnley in 2012. Following his release two years later he spent spells at Rochdale and Dagenham & Redbridge before joining Welling United in 2015.

Manager Neil Smith said: “George is a young versatile player who can play as a winger or striker. He has had a taste of League football and wants to get back there, I am delighted he has joined our club.”

Porter added: “It`s great to be here. I’ve met the staff and players at training today. It’s a great set up and the club is clearly going places in a big way, the training ground is superb and I cannot wait to get started.”

The club have also signed Academy scholar Daniel Ajakaiye.

The 18-year-old forward scored 24 goals since joining the Academy and scored five goals in the recent tour of Belgium.

Ajakaiye is known for his incredible pace, eye for goal and fantastic attitude. His efforts were rewarded last season when he made his first team debut at Guiseley coming on as a substitute in the seventy-ninth minute.

Following a pre-season with Bromley, he will join Ryman League Premier Division side Grays Athletic on a dual registration basis in order to continue his development.
