Sam, brother of Abraham had two spells with Forest around the turn of the last decade.

He started off his career as a youngster, playing for Barking, before moving on to Bishop’s Stortford, and subsequently Aveley, where he spent a season and a half.

Spells at Potters Bar Town, Tilbury and Ilford followed, before signing for Forest a month into the 2009-10 season. Despite only scoring one goal in seven games, he caught the eye of Heybridge Swifts, earning a big-ish money move.

That move didn’t work out, and by November 2010, Sam was playing at Potters Bar Town. He returned to Forest briefly in the 2010-11 season, making two appearances, at which point he moved to then-landlords Ilford.

After seemingly taking a few years out of senior football, Sam signed for Olympian League Premier Division side Newham United, where remained for four seasons before the east-London side folded. He also appeared briefly for Newham in the Essex Senior League during 2015-16.
