Sam Sherring joined the Cherries in 2007 and has worked his way through the development centre and academy ranks at Vitality Stadium.
Born in Dorchester and raised near Bridport, he attended Salway Ash Primary and Beaminster School and skippered the Cherries to EFL Youth Alliance Cup glory in 2017.
The central defender has enjoyed two successful loan spells at Weymouth, helping the Terras to back-to-back promotions.
He was a key player as Weymouth were crowned Southern League champions in 2018/19, making 37 league and cup appearances.
Sherring signed a new contract with the club before rejoining Weymouth in the summer of 2019, where he was part of the Terras’ successful promotion from the National League South making 11 appearances in the 2019/20 season.
Last season, Sherring was loaned out to Torquay, making a total of 42 league appearances, scoring three times and keeping 17 clean as the Gulls reached the National League play-off final.
Despite defeat to Hartlepool, Sherring was named in the Vanarama team of the season in what was an impressive year for the 21-year-old.
Sherring was part of Scott Parker’s pre-season trip to Spain ahead, starting in the 2-1 defeat to Granada but has since joined League One Accrington Stanley for the 2021/22 season.
