International Honours: England Under-17

The Academy product is a left-back with excellent defensive qualities paired with a willingness to get forward and support attacks. A series of polished performances for the youth team saw him rewarded with an international call-up to England under-17s last season.

Just like his Academy team-mates David Stephens and Dario Dumic, Sam was rewarded with a first professional contract in the summer of 2009 just one year into his two-year Academy scholarship.

Sam will be looking to develop his game at reserve team level in 2009-10 as well as pushing on to the first team scene - however he also remains young enough to play for the youth team and have a second crack at the FA Youth Cup.
