Inverness Caledonian Thistle can confirm Sam Pearson has had to end his loan spell at the club early and return to Bristol City, due to a close family bereavement.  

Sam joined us in January, making 8 appearances and scoring one goal which was his first senior goal.  

Sam conducted himself exceptionally well in both training and during matches and we obviously wish Sam and his family all the best in the future and thank him for his efforts while here at the club.  

We also thank the relevant Bristol City staff for their professionalism throughout our dealings with the club and we hope they can finish their season well.
