We are delighted to announce the signing of 26-year-old winger Nathan Thomas.

Thomas joins the club following the expiry of his contract at Sheffield United in the summer. Last season was spent on-loan at Carlisle United where he scored 9 goals in 41 appearances for the League 2 side.

Having been involved in youth set-ups at Newcastle & Sunderland, Nathan has gone on to make over 200 appearances in the English football leagues.

Speaking to the clubs website he said: “I’m direct, I like to score goals and create goals, that’s my biggest attributes. I like to travel with the ball, I’m quite a dynamic player for my position so hopefully if I can replicate what i’ve done in the past I can have a good time here at Hamilton.”

“I know Lee Hodson from my time at Gillingham, he’s a good lad and someone I’m looking forward to working with again.”

“I also know what’s required of me here and I’m more than ready to roll my sleeves up and get stuck in.”

Thomas will be eligible for Sunday’s squad that head to Ibrox to play top of the table side Rangers.
