George David Dobson (born 15 November 1997) is an English footballer who plays as a midfielder for Walsall on loan from West Ham United. He is a versatile player who can play in central defensive or midfield positions.



Dobson started his career as a youth player at Arsenal aged 8 before joining West Ham on 28 July 2015. Dobson, aged 17 at the time, was placed straight into the Development squad also known as the club's U21 side and played frequently during the 2015-16 season. At Arsenal, Dobson was played as a centre-back. However, much to the player's delight, West Ham trained him into a central midfielder, often playing in a holding or defensive role. He is a boyhood West Ham United fan and this helped in the decision of joining the club in 2015.

On 29 June 2016, Dobson signed for League One side Walsall on a season-long loan. He made his debut in the EFL Cup in a 2-0 home defeat to Yeovil Town. He started the match before being substituted on the 69th minute. His league debut came on 16 August when he started the match in a 0-2 defeat at Chesterfield.
