Aged 17, Samuel became the club’s youngest-ever player as he made his debut in the opening match away to Hartford City. He played in 10 matches, totaling 606 minutes. He served a two-match suspension for a red card picked up at home to Greater Lowell.
Samuel has progressed through the academy systems of the New England Revolution and Boston Bolts having played varsity soccer at Watertown High School.
In 2018, the midfielder captained the club’s second team as a 16-year-old as Boston City FC II narrowly missed out on winning promotion in the Bay State Soccer League.
In the spring of 2019, Samuel was one of three Lions players who traveled to the Boston City FC academy in Manhuaçu to spend three weeks training with the club’s professional team that gained promotion to the State First Division to cap a successful first season in 2018.
