In the midst of this Covid-19 pandemic, the generosity of Mr James Anderson to ourselves and the other SPFL Clubs is hugely welcome and his selfless actions thoroughly deserve the thanks and appreciation of all his beneficiaries.
Many thanks James.
Part of the funding we received will play a vital part in allowing us to continue with our Youth Development and Community initiatives.
It is well documented that the current Youth Development and Academy structures are struggling financially, however we at Hamilton are totally committed to maintaining and indeed improving our Youth Development programmes.
When Government guidelines dictate we will be returning to full training, playing and education programmes.
Our existing excellent Academy staff will be kept in place and no cuts will be made to their numbers. We currently have thirty full time professionals contracted for season 2020/21 and we are delighted that twenty of these players are our Academy graduates.
We look forward to seeing the next crop making their competitive debuts in the first team.
