Speaking on Lawal’s signing the club’s Men’s first-team Manager David Martindale said: “I’m excited as to what Samson will bring to the group of players we currently have here at the club.

“He has played a number of positions in his short career – 7, 11, 8 & 10 – and most recently with ourselves in a couple of bounce games as a 6 and he was fantastic there too!

“He’s a very versatile footballer who has not long turned 19 and I genuinely believe there is a huge amount of development still to come from Samson.”

Lawal played in every game for the Flying Eagles at the U-20 World Cup, helping them reach the quarter-finals.
