Promotion-chasing Chorley have announced 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 tomorrow’s game against Altrincham.
They each join from National League sides, with Sampson arriving from Macclesfield Town, while McDaid comes in from York City.
Sampson, a 6’ 2” 23-year-old striker, started his football career in Wigan Athletic`s youth set-up but switched to Bolton Wanderers at the age of 15 and earned his first pro-contract at the Trotters three years later.
Although 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 matchday squad before moving to Macclesfield, initially on loan in March 2015, then making the move permanent during that summer.
Sampson, who has made twenty-seven appearances for the Silkmen this term, scored in the Buildbase FA Trophy win at AFC Sudbury last weekend but will now look to help Chorley with their push for promotion.
In total Sampson, who has mainly operated in a wide role during his time with the club, has made seventy-five appearances, scoring 7 goals for the Silkmen.
Twenty-year-old McDaid 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 eight starts and is a real talent.
Meanwhile, midfielder Paul Jarvis is set to join his home-town club, Evo-Stik Northern Premier League First Division North high-flyers Lancaster City, on a month’s loan.
