Surridge commits future to The Cherries
Congratulations to Sam Surridge who today has signed a new 2.5-year contract with Premier League club Bournemouth
The 20-year-old is currently on loan with League Two side Oldham Athletic and is becoming a terrace favourite at Boundary Park, scoring nine times in 13 outings for the Latics.
Sam’s form saw him pick up the League Two Player of the month for September. A month in which he scored five goals in four games.
Highly rated at the Vitality Stadium, Bournemouth were keen to tie Sam to the club for the foreseeable future by offering this new and improved deal. A deal that is thoroughly deserved.
Sam had this to say on his new deal…
“It’s a nice feeling and I’m really pleased,”
“I’ve been doing well out on loan and it’s almost like being rewarded for what I’ve been doing and it’s going well so far.
“I scored quite a few goals in my first few months and I felt sharp and was really enjoying my football. Unfortunately I suffered an injury and didn’t play for five weeks, but I played my first 90 minutes in the FA Cup on Saturday.
“I need to get fir and over the injury, it’s OK having your leg feel OK but getting that sharpness back is key really. But it’s been a really good experience so far and I’m enjoying it.
“To be playing football at my age in the league is great, it will give me lots of experience for when I come and back and hopefully that will stand me in good stead to be around the first team.
“I’ve had lots of good experiences out on loan so far and it’s almost been an upwards curve. I want to keep playing and keep scoring and see what happens. I want to keep showing that I have earned the new deal.”
Congratulations from us all at KeySports Sam. Continue to Be Exceptional.
