Defender Sam Habergham played a number of games for Norwich City's Under-18s during the 2007/8 season ahead of him becoming an academy scholar in the summer of 2008

Sam was very nearly released by Norwich City at the age of 12 but was given another year to prove himself and worked hard to progress to becoming an academy scholar. He can play at either left-back or centre-back

Sam was awarded his first professional contract with the Canaries at the end of June 2009

On 23rd June 2016, he signed for Lincoln City on a two year contract. He played a major role as Lincoln won the Conference, finishing first on 99 points - four more than second-placed Tranmere. Promotion caps off a truly remarkable season for the Imps, juggling National League title ambitions with an FA Cup run which saw them become the first non-league side to reach the quarter-finals of the FA Cup in 103 years, with victories over Burnley and Brighton before losing 5-0 to Arsenal. He would make a total of 97 appearances for Lincoln, scoring four goals, and played when they won the EFL Trophy in 2017/18. He then suffered a serious knee injury that required surgery in 2019. He didn't play again for Lincoln and was released at the end of the 2018/19 season.

On 6 January 2021, Habergham joined Grimsby Town on trial and was added to the clubs starting line up for their U23 fixture against Scunthorpe United. On 8 January 2021, Habergham signed for Grimsby on a six-month deal.

Grimsby were relegated to the National League on 27th April 2021

Habergham joined Portsmouth on trial in July 2021 playing in a pre-season friendly against Bristol City.

In February 2022 he signed for Australian side Peninsula Power who play in the second tier National Premier Leagues Queensland.

On 11th July 2022 he returned to England to join National League side Wealdstone.
