The talented left-sided player has higher level experience having spent three years with Cinderford Town and also serving Cirencester Town and Westfields.
“Sam has a wand of a left foot,” said co-manager, Lee Hooper. “He is an experienced and hard working lad with a great attitude who fits into the type of character that we want to bring into the group, both on and off-the-field. He is able to play in a number of different positions on the left-hand side; he likes to get forward from defence and has good delivery. This is another exciting signing for us and we look forward to what he will bring to the team.”
27 year-old Hunt, who was with Wellington last term, admits that it didn’t take him long to decide that this is where he wanted to be.
“As soon as I spoke to Dene and Hoops my decision to join the club was a no-brainer,” he said. “The ambition and progressive profile that the club has both on and off-the-pitch was a huge attraction to me and I wanted to be part of it. Having previously played with the likes of Jay, Febs, Ben Miller and George Hayes, I got a good insight into the style of play and how professionally the club is run. I feel I’ll bring good experience and add depth at full-back. Hopefully I can establish a regular place in the team and be part of a solid defensive unit as well as adding some quality going forward and in my distribution."
“We’ve had some really good, high-energy training sessions so far and, to be honest, I can’t wait for the season to start. There’s a real buzz around the whole club and I am delighted to be part of this project. The vision is very clear here and it’s going to be an exciting journey. I’d like to think that as a unit we can take the club to the next level, which ultimately has to be our main goal this season. My personal target will to be play as much football as I can but to also provide assists and goals from left back.“
