Cardiff Met’s Jordan Lam and Llantwit Major’s Sam Snaith on trial at Newport County
Cardiff Metropolitan University winger Jordan Lam and Llantwit Major’s young forward Sam Snaith are currently on trial at Football League side Newport County.
The Welsh football duo played the full ninety minutes for the Ambers, in their 0-0 draw with Welsh Football League side Penybont yesterday.
Former Undy Athletic midfielder, now County first team boss Mike Flynn was in attendance at the KYMCO Stadium to cast an eye over Lam and Snaith, playing in a team with a number of trialists.
Archers winger Jordan Lam was played in a central role and shone in the first half as he tried to find service to the front-men, as well as a smart number of runs. Forward Sam Snaith also put a shift in, winning a number of flick-ons, as well as rattling the crossbar with a second-half effort.
Lam’s last involvement of last season was being on the losing side of the Europa League play-off final defeat to the Cefn Druids, however, he was named Welsh Premier League player of the Month.
Manager Christian Edwards said on Lam’s performance in May: “He has been electric and is back to the old Jordan Lam.
He’s been industrious, the hard work he puts in within the 18-yard-box is phenomenal, it’s just making sure the end product is there and this past month it has been.”
The 23-year-old has made over 50 appearances for the Met in the Welsh Premier League, scoring a total of five times.
Llantwit Major forward Sam Snaith has burst on to the Welsh League scene over the last seasons. He earnt a hat-trick of awards at the club, winning the Player’s Player, Young Player of the Year and the Top Goalscorer award, as the Major won the Division Two title.
Back in April, Llantwit boss Karl Lewis said “In my inexperienced opinion he has everything needed to play at a higher level and I will be surprised if higher teams don’t take time to have a look at him over the summer.
Obviously, we want Sam to be with us for as long as possible but I believe he deserves a chance to play at the professional level and if it doesn’t work out we are always here for him.”
The 18-year-old has spent the last few weeks with County and was on the scoresheet against Undy Athletic in their 1-1 draw.
He was also voted in to Y Clwb Pel-Droed’s Division Two Team of the Season’ back in June.
