Sammon is one of six new signings to be made by new Alloa Athletic manager Barry Ferguson. Another is believed to be Ben Armour, who was last with Peterhead. Alloa will play League One football in the 2021/22 season after relegation from the Championship last term.

A former Republic of Ireland international, Sammon earned his first move south of the border to Wigan in 2011 after a three-year stint at Kilmarnock. Sammon returned to Scottish football with Hearts in 2016 after a four-year spell with Derby County but played just 20 times for the Tynecastle side.

 

Loan stints at Kilmarnock, Partick Thistle and Motherwell followed before signing for Falkirk in 2019.
