Falkirk boss John McGlynn said: “I’d first like to thank Lincoln City and in particular Jez George for their help in allowing Sam to come up here on loan for the season. We now have two very good young goalkeepers who will spur each other on throughout the season.

"Sam has had a few loans already and has got great experience for such a young keeper thanks to his spell in the League of Ireland with Drogheda United and in the National League with Boston United and Bromley.

“Sam is an excellent shot stopper with good distribution as well, he gives us great competition in the goalkeeping department, and we are looking forward to working with him this season.”
