Sam joined The Lions on a one year deal from Penistone Church on 10th August 2019.
Marcus Bignot and Russ O’Neill have kept tabs on him for some time before adding him to the squad.
He scored over 30 goals in all competitions last season for the Northern Counties East League Premier Division side and in the pre-season trialled with Scottish club Partick Thistle and Chesterfield.
The Penistone raised player scored 27 league goals last season and was recommended to Partick by their former player Ronnie Glavin.
He went on their pre-season tour to La Manga and although they liked his energy and work rate they felt that he was similar to what they already had.
Penistone manager Ian Richards believes that the player should play at a higher level and he said:”He is an excellent attacking player who plays with pace and purpose. He is good with both feet, strong, quick and has a great strike on him. He deserves a chance at full-time football at some point.”
On signing Scrivens Russ O’Neill said “He can play anywhere across the front line, he is young, enthusiastic and desparate for an opportunity, he will really relish it.”
