We are delighted to announce the loan signing of Luke Southwood from Reading FC, subject to international clearance. 

Southwood, a 21-year-old goalkeeper has joined the club on loan until January 2020. The shot-stopper who has played for Reading u23s as well as loan spells at Bath & Eastleigh will add to our goalkeeper options.

Luke was part of the 2017 England squad that won the u-20 Fifa World Cup in South Korea. Speaking to AcciesTV about that he said: “It was amazing and good to be in South Korea with the rest of the lads, winning the competition was something quite special that I’ll never forget.”

The highly-rated goalkeeper took part in his first training session this afternoon with Owain Fôn Williams & Kyle Gourlay and hopes to get some game time under his belt during his spell here.

“It’s a really good group we have here, I could tell straight away that they’re good lads and the training is high intensity.”

I want the Hamilton fans to know that I really want the club to do well, this isn’t just a loan spell for me, I’m here to win games and help the club achieve their goals for the season.
