Sam Taylor signs first year professional deal with Minstermen

By Brad Saxton

York City is pleased to announce the capture of 18-year-old goalkeeper Sam Taylor on a first year professional deal. 

Having come through the youth-team set-up at Huddersfield Town, the young goalkeeper will link up with the U19’s for the upcoming season, which gets underway next Wednesday.

During his second year as a scholar at the West Yorkshire club, he spent last season on loan at Northern League side Northallerton Town on loan, where he was a regular in between the sticks.

Speaking on signing for the Minstermen, Taylor said “I’m really excited to join the club, I spoke to Tim and the goalkeeping coaches and there is a really good plan in place and I’m really excited for what the next year holds for myself.

“I really enjoyed my time in the academy at Huddersfield, I felt I really took a lot out of that experience and that I really developed over the two years I spent there.

“I also had a loan spell in non-league last season with Northallerton, so I feel I really learned a lot from that experience and about the physicality side at that level as I got a year of men’s football under my belt.”
