SAM HORNBY SIGNS NEW DEAL

27 June 2016

YOUNG Burton Albion goalkeeper Sam Hornby has signed a new one-year-deal with the Brewers.

The 21-year-old will immediately join National League North side Kidderminster Harriers on a season-long loan.

Sam spent the second half of last season on loan at Brackley in order to help them survive in the National League North, which they did on goal difference.

His impressive performances earned him Brackley Town's player of the season, chosen by their manager Kevin Wilkin. Hornby was also nominated by his team-mates as player of the season.

Nigel Clough said: “What goalkeepers need as much as training is match experience in order to mature.

“He’s only young but he’s improving. He’s impressed us very much since we came in.

“He’s training with the first-team goalkeepers every day and he’s been out on loan at Brackley for the second half of the season who have just managed to stay in the Conference North.

“You always need a third-choice goalkeeper for training and everything.
