Herne Bay have announced Sam Bewick as their third summer signing as they up prepararations for the 20/21 season.
Sam has spent recent seasons at SCEFL side Corinthians helping them finish high up in the league but also suffering from injury woes.
He arrives at The Bay with a wealth of Isthmian League experience having previously played for the club as well as Faversham Town, where he finished as their top scorer from the centre of midfield with 17 goals. The former QPR Academy player has also worked under current assistant manager Tim Dixon and Head Coach Darren Beale when they worked together at Hythe.
On his return to the Kent Vehicle’s stadium, Sam had this to say: ‘Thrilled to be back with the bay. I feel there’s an element of unfinished business in the league and at the club for me. I’ve added a few goals to my game over the last few years so hopefully, I can bring that with me along with plenty of energy in the middle of the park. From speaking to the gaffer, he filled me with so much confidence that he knows how to get the best out of me this season and you’ve just got to see the squad he has assembled this season so far, it was a no brainer for me. Can’t wait to get going now, hopefully, we aren’t waiting too long’
Ben Smith had this to say on securing his 3rd signing: ‘Pleased to have Sam with us at the bay, he’s a player that is hated by the opposition which I have had plenty of experience of in the past! After showing some fantastic form, last season was tough for him with his injury problems but his recovery has gone really well and he’s looking extremely fit at the moment and probably ahead of where I expected him to be which bodes well. Versatility and energy going both ways on the pitch are two ingredients that we need in our squad going forward and if we can keep Sam fit and healthy then he has these in abundance.’
Smith has been a long time admirer of Bewick and he will be very pleased to finally have him on his side.
