Sam was born in Malaysia but left the country when he was five. He started his professional career with Charlton Athletic in July 2014.
Sam was highly thought of at Charlton and his playing style was compared to Michael Carrick by people at the club.
However, since joining Shamrock Rovers in 2017 the majority of his appearances to date have been in defensive positions rather than midfield. Sam bravely battled cancer in his youth before getting the all-clear to return to football.
Sam spoke to Hoops Scene in July 2018, the interview is on the Hoops Scene Archive
He joined Waterford FC on load in the summer of 2019.
