George Jenkins (born September 1904, date of death January 1985, in Glasgow, Scotland) was a Canadian soccer player who began his career in Canada, spent a single season in the American Soccer League and ended it in Scotland.

Jenkins was born in Stockton-on-Tees, England, but his family moved to Canada when he was two. They settled in Montreal and he began his senior career with Montreal CPR of the Canadian National Soccer League. At some point he also played for the Montreal Maroons. In 1926, he moved south and signed with Indiana Flooring in the American Soccer League. He played only nine league games, but scored five goals, adding another goal in two National Challenge Cup games. He then returned to Montreal, rejoining the Maroons. Although he had played as a center forward up to this time, he now moved into the nets as a result of a serious knee injury and where he remained for the rest of his career. After recovery from injury he first played for Rosemount Rangers in Montreal in 1929, then Iberville in the Montreal and District League in 1931, and then on to Montreal CPR in 1932 and Montreal Carsteel in 1933. In 1933, Jenkins moved to Scotland and signed with Rangers. He then moved to Kilmarnock F.C. for a season before ending his career with the Hamilton Academical during the 1946-1947 season.
