Chorley are delighted to announce double signing of attackers Jack Sampson and Robbie McDaid.
Both players have signed on loan until the end of the season and go straight into the squad for Saturday’s game against Altrincham.
They each join from National League sides with Jack arriving from Macclesfield Town while Robbie comes in from York City.
Jack, a 6’ 2” 23-year-old striker started his football career in Wigan Athletics’ youth setup but switched to Bolton Wanderers at the age of 15 and earned his first pro-contract at the Trotters three years later.
Though he never made a first team appearance at the then Reebok Stadium he had loan spells with both Southend United and Accrington Stanley.
In 2013 he moved to Morecambe and was a regular in their match day squad before moving to Macclesfield Town, initially on loan in March 2015, then making the move permanent during that summer.
To date he has played 65 league games for Macc including one where he recorded a clean sheet after replacing the sent-off Ritchie Branagan in goal in the fifth minute!
Meanwhile, 20-year-old Robbie, started his footballing career with Glenavon in his native Northern Ireland before being snapped up by Leeds United in 2014.
He spent a large part of 2015/16 on loan at Lincoln City before joining the Minstermen in the summer of 2016.
To date he’s netted 4 times in 8 starts and is a real talent.
Meanwhile, midfielder Paul Jarvis is set to join his hometown club Lancaster City on a month’s loan.
