27 year-old Sam joined Stortford from Waltham Abbey in the summer of 2018. He began his career at Wingate & Finchley before moving on to the Abbotts. He spent the three seasons at Waltham Abbey playing well over 100 games, mainly in central defence where his superb reading of the game, speed and tenacious attitude caught the eye of the management. Sam made his Stortford debut in a Herts County Charity Cup tie against Hitchin Town in early August last year and is the skipper of the side. He scored his first Blues goal in the 2-1 victory at Worthing in November. At the end of the season Sam was awarded both “the players’ player of the season” award and “the Manager’s player of the season” award. By the end of last term Sam had made 49 appearances and netted 2 goals for Stortford.
