We are pleased to announce that we have completed the signing of winger Sam Clucas.
The 22-year-old, who made 41 league appearances for Hereford side last season, primarily plays on the left-hand side of midfield, but can operate elsewhere.
Delighted with having captured Clucas’ signature, manager Paul Cox said: “In Sam, we have signed an offensive player who will add a lot of quality to our play in the final third.
“He’s a young boy who I feel has the potential to play at a very high level in the game if he continues his learning curve,” added our boss.
Born in Lincoln, Clucas began his career in the academy ranks at Leicester City and spent six years with The Foxes, before leaving the King Power Stadium aged 16.
He spent time at Central Midlands League side Nettleham in the 2008/09 campaign, whilst also studying Sports Development at Lincoln College during the week.
The youngster was offered the chance of a scholarship in the United States, but after a successful trial period he joined Lincoln City on a one-year deal in August 2009.
After making only a handful of appearances, Clucas was released by The Imps in June 2010, but he soon penned a deal with Spanish outfit Jerez Industrial.
It wasn’t long before his talents were spotted by Hereford United, who swooped to take him to Edgar Street midway through the 2011/12 campaign.
Clucas will report for pre-season training along with the rest of our first team squad next week.
