Jack Sampson (born 14 April 1993) is an English footballer who currently plays as a forward for League Two side Morecambe after being released by Bolton Wanderers at the end of the 2012–13 season. He has been capped at England Under-19 level.


Sampson came through the Wigan Athletic academy,[3] before joining Bolton in 2008 along with Ryan Clarke and a number of other youth players.[citation needed]

Sampson joined Southend United on loan for one month on 12 January 2012 after signing a new 18-month contract at Bolton.[4] He was given the number 26 jersey for the duration of his loan period,[5] and made his debut on 14 January when coming on as a late substitute for Elliot Benyon in Southend's 5–2 victory at Northampton Town, where he gained an assist.[6] On 13 February the loan was extended for a further month.[7] This loan was extended for another month on 12 March.[8] For the 2012/13 season Sampson was given the number 37 shirt for the Championship.[9]

On 11 October 2012, Sampson joined Accrington Stanley on a one month loan deal to gain some more experience & to link up with former Bolton full back Leam Richardson who had been installed as manager that week.[10] Despite Accringtons best efforts to keep him he returned to parent club Bolton Wanderers at the end of his loan spell in November 2012 after making 6 appearances to try and catch the eye of new manager Dougie Freedman who had been appointed during his absence.

Sampson was released by Bolton, along with several other youth players at the end of the 2012–13 season.[11]

On 25 July 2013, he made the move to current club Morecambe on a two-year contract.[12]
