New Signing | Aaron McGowan

Hamilton Academical FC can confirm that 21 year old full back Aaron McGowan has agreed to join the club. 

McGowan, known as AJ, will join up at New Douglas Park from Morecambe and becomes manager Martin Canning’s 6th signing of the summer.

The Liverpudlian joins Accies with 119 English Football League appearances under his belt where he primarily operated at right back or right wing back. 

Manager Martin Canning said: ’Aaron fits the profile of player that has become synonymous with the success of Hamilton Accies in recent years; he’s young, hungry and, despite only being 21, has played over 100 games at first team level.

‘He’s another one we’ve been following for a while. He has improved year on year, evidenced with the personal accolades he picked up last season, so we’re delighted he’s chosen Hamilton Accies as the place to continue his development.’’

Speaking to Accies TV McGowan said: ‘’There were a few other options but the club made me feel at home straight away. I want to improve as a player and as a person and the environment here, alongside the people that they’ve developed here in the past, was a big factor in my decision to join.’’

McGowan added: ‘’People might look at Hamilton as a club and think ‘you’re not one of the big boys’ in the Premiership but I don’t look at it like that. I don’t care who we’re playing against, I just want to win games at 3pm on a Saturday.’’
