Sam Higgins new at Hashtag United


Hashtag United have announced the signing of striker Sam Higgins, last seen scoring for Canvey Island- where he scored his four hundredth career goal in April.


Sam managed nine goals from seventeen appearances for Canvey last season, after starting the campaign with Hornchurch, where he got four goals from nine appearances. He had been at Bridge Avenue since the 20-21 campaign, when he made nine appearances and scored five times as the Urchins defeated seven higher-division opponents to win the FA Trophy. He added fifteen goals as his side reached the Play Off Final in 21-22, and another thirty five as they did the same again during the 22-23 season, when he was named in the 'Team of the Season' chosen by our managers. 


Prior to his time at Hornchurch Sam played at a higher level with Chelmsford City, East Thurrock United, Concord Rangers and Bromley. He also spent a very short time with Canvey, parachuting in on a dual registration deal to play a part in their 2017-18 Isthmian North Play Off campaign and scoring the opener in their Semi-Final win over Bowers and Pitsea.
