Histon FC is delighted to confirm the transfer of goalkeeper Sam Roach from Mildenhall Town. Sam has been on loan with us since mid December but today has completed a permanent transfer.

Sam was with our own Academy initially but moved on to Leyton Orient from where he was called up to join an England Under 16’s training camp at St George’s Park in the summer of 2014. He re-joined us on loan from the O’s in January last year, going on to impress during his stay and make 14 appearances.

At the end of last season he left Orient and signed for newly promoted Mildenhall Town but has now returned to Bridge Road in a more permanent deal and although still only 18, has already produced numerous mature and authoritative displays between the sticks for us.

Manager Lance Key was delighted to get the deal done “Our ninth keeper! We needed a keeper on a permanent basis and Sam is a talented young keeper who we feel will add to the whole squad as we push forward in the second half of the season.”
