Newman Is Our New Man

PostedJune 8, 2024

Cowdenbeath FC this week finalised a pre-contract arrangement with Spartans’ Sam Newman who will thus return to Central Park after his existing deal with the Edinburgh club runs out at the end of June.

Sam of course was on loan to us from Spartans for the whole of season 2022/23 and he excelled in that campaign earning both the Cowdenbeath FC Player of the Year award and the club’s Players’ Player of the Year award.

Sam previously spent four years with Edinburgh City before making the short move to Spartans in 2021. Last season he made a number of appearances for Spartans in the SPFL.

Manager Dougie Hill commented, "It’s great news that we have managed to get Sam to commit his future to Cowdenbeath. We needed a left-sided player and he has qualities I am looking for in a full back/wing back. The club was always keen to bring Sam back and I’m excited to get to work with Sam once he is with us pre-season."

Sam said, "I’m delighted that I am signing with Cowdenbeath after really enjoying my loan spell at Central Park. It was a no-brainer to look to join on a permanent. I hope to help bring Cowden success and am keen to get started. Thanks too to Colin Nelson for helping with the arrangements."

Colin also was able to add his thoughts saying, "Fantastic that we have managed to agree a 2-year deal with Sam. We tried a couple of times to get Sam back after his loan spell where we saw first hand Sam’s quality and attributes. I think it’s a coup getting Sam back especially given his real enthusiasm to rejoin us and to play for Cowdenbeath. I’m sure the fans will welcome Sam’s return."
