King’s Lynn Town have signed young Peterborough United defender Sam Cartwright.
The St Neots based centre-back has been at the ‘Posh’ since the age of Under 12.
Cartwright has come in from the League Two side on a “youth work experience deal” until the end of the season. With Ryan Fryatt, Sam Gaughran, and Tom Ward sidelined, manager Ian Culverhouse was left with no option but to bring in some reinforcements.
He will go straight into the Linnets squad for Saturday’s game against Dunstable at The Walks.
The 16 year-old is a first year centre-back for the Youth Team at Peterborough.
He said: “As a centre back, I would describe myself a ball playing defender and if I were to compare myself to a professional player, I’d say I have a similarity to Jan Vertonghen (Spurs).
“I must admit, I’m pleased with myself so far as I’ve started the season well, albeit with a sending off in my first game, but since then I’ve kept my place in the team and done well.”
