George joined The Millers from local rivals Tilbury during the 2019/20 season and scored on his debut in the FA trophy match away at East Grinstead. Sykes went on to score 15 and assist 10 in 27 games before the season ended early. In 2020/21 George made 10 appearances, scoring 5 and assisting twice before moving onto Brentwood Town, however, that season was stopped in November. George then re-joined The Millers at the start of the 2021/22 season, making 42 appearances, scoring 20 goals and assisting a futher 10 times, helping us win the Isthmian North.

Sykesy started his football career as a youngster when he joined the Barnet youth team as an under-16 and was top scorer in the English U-18 youth system in the 2011-12 season with 24 goals. He made his senior debut at the age of 17 against Bristol Rovers on 21 August 2012.

Sykes went on and signed his first professional contract with the Bees in November 2012. He won the League Two Apprentice of the Year award at the Football League Awards in March 2013. On 15 August 2013, he joined Bishop's Stortford on loan.

On his return to Barnet in November, Sykes came on as substitute at home to Cambridge United. With the score at 2-2, Sykes put the ball in the net in injury time after it had dropped from a cloud of smoke caused by a smoke bomb, obscuring the view of the assistant referee, who controversially disallowed the goal, claiming the ball had gone out of play, and Sykes was denied his first goal for Barnet. His first goal for Barnet came on 30 November, when he scored an 89th minute acrobatic winner in an FA Trophy first round tie against Hayes & Yeading United.
