Sam Russell


Goalkeeper

Shot stopper Sam Russell arrived at The New Lawn in January 2012 with a reputation ranking the former Middlesbrough youth team product as one of the top goalkeepers in the Blue Square Bet Premier.

And Sam instantly proved his goalkeeping credentials by saving four consecutive penalty kicks in his first eight appearances in a Rovers shirt.

Russell joined Forest Green on a two-and-a-half year contract from financially troubled Darlington, with whom he had enjoyed three previous spells and had previous non-league experience with Wrexham and a loan spell at Gateshead in his Middlesbrough days.

The confident keeper has also spent time on loan at Scunthorpe United, featured in the Football League for Rochdale and was a part of Darlington’s successful FA Trophy winning squad at Wembley in 2011.
