Yeovil Town have agreed a deal to sign up Newport County player Sam Foley for the start of next season. The 25 year old will pen a one year contract with the Glovers for the 2012-13 season. He is generally listed as a midfielder, although was Newport's top scorer last season, with some sites listing him as a striker.
The Irishman is a former Cheltenham Town trainee, who played for their Reserve Team up until the end of the 2007-08 season, as well as going out on loan to play for Bath City. He then signed for Kidderminster Harriers, and was on their books for the 2008-09 season, spending some time out on loan with Redditch United. He signed for Newport County, initially on loan, in February 2009, where he scored four goals, going on to make that move permanent for the 2009-10 season, playing for them in both midfield and front line positions.
During his first full season with the Exiles, at Conference South level, he netted 17 goals in 36 matches as Newport won promotion up to National level. At the higher level, he netted five times in 44 games during 2010-11, following that up with 12 goals in 49 appearances last season, taking his overall goal tally to 38 across the four seasons, having made just under 150 appearances. He also has represented the Republic of Ireland at Under-18 level.
Sam becomes Yeovil Town's first signing of the summer - his last appearance for Newport came in their FA Trophy Final match against York City earlier this month.
