Sam Minihan

The former Loughborough University and Worcester City defender was one of the players of the season for the conference north side last season, helping City to stay in the division.

The 22 year old had previously played for Rochdale before completing his studies at Loughborough while playing in their first team in the midland alliance leagues.

Sam joined County just before the players came back to pre-season training and will most likely be one of the final permanent signings that Gannon makes before the season begins.
