Sam Sanders signs permanent deal

By Dan Simmonite | 28th June 2022

We are delighted to announce the permanent signing of Sam Sanders from Nottingham Forest.

The defender has rejected a new contract from the Premier League side in favour of signing deal with the Minstermen for first team football.

He has penned a two-year deal and joins the club on 1st July.

The 20-year-old former loanee starred in John Askey’s back line in the push for promotion through the playoffs last season, forming a partnership with Maxim Kouogun, who also signed a new deal earlier this month.

Speaking on joining back up with the club he said: “I broke into the team and ever since then it’s been amazing.

“The fans here are unbelievable, you see the attendance week in, week out and in the playoffs you are breaking records – they get behind you every step of the way.

“It’s a no brainer [to sign] in the National League with [the opportunity of] first team football. You look at [the division] nowadays, there are some massive teams and York being one of them.”
