Sam Whittall

The Bucks are pleased to announce the signing of midfielder Sam Whittall, who joins the club from Rushall Olympic.

Sam, who is Telford-based, makes the move across the West Midlands, bringing to a conclusion a pursuit of the player that Kevin Wilkin began in the summer.

Sam opted to extend his stay at Dales Lane but once his availability was signalled earlier this week, the Bucks manager reignited his interest, with a successful conclusion.

Sam, who celebrated his 30th birthday 8 days ago, began his footballing education in the Wolverhampton Wanderers Academy and signed a professional contract; however, Wolves released him in the summer of 2014 without making a first-team appearance.

Cambridge United signed Sam on a six-month deal, and he made his EFL debut as a substitute in a 2-2 draw with York City.

With his deal not extended, Sam signed for Brackley Town ahead of the 2015/16 campaign, a club he had played for on loan the previous season.

After a handful of appearances for the Saints and one goal, Sam switched to Stourbridge FC and made a dozen appearances before joining Rushall Olympic.

Sam established himself as a mainstay in the Pics midfield, making in excess of 300 appearances and helping them to promotion to Step 2 through the playoffs in the 2022-23 season.

Subject to clearance Sam will be available for tomorrow’s home game with Stratford Town, when he hope all Bucks fans will extend a warm welcome to him.
