Sam's staying

Slocombe signs two-year deal

22 June 2021

Our number-one goalkeeper Sam Slocombe has signed a new two-year contract at Meadow Lane.

The experienced stopper has been a crucial cog in our wheel since his arrival in 2019 and Ian Burchnall is thrilled he’ll be between our sticks for the foreseeable future.

“Retaining Sam is a huge positive for us,” said the head coach. “Not only is he a tremendous goalkeeper but he’s a top professional who helps drive high standards every day.

“Everyone knows that we like to play out from the back and Sam’s distribution, composure and vast experience make him the perfect fit for us.

“He enjoys the way we play, too, and I think his decision to stay is a great reflection of the excitement players have for what we’re trying to build.

“It’s been a long, hard season for Sam and I’ve told him to rest up and get ready to play a crucial role once again for us next season.”
