We are delighted to announce the temporary transfer of Lee Hodson from English League One side Gillingham.

The 28-year-old brings a wealth of experience to our squad with previous spells at Watford, Rangers and most recently St Mirren. Looking forward to getting started Hodson said: “It’s been in the pipeline for quite some while now, I’m delighted we’ve finally got it over the line, I’m now a Hamilton player till the end of the season and I can’t wait to get out there and play football.”

“Hopefully I can bring some experience to the squad and help the younger lads out. The gaffer has told me a lot of good things and obviously seeing this today in training, I can see there’s young players with potential. I’m just looking forward to continuing my training and getting to know the lads more.”

Speaking about his latest addition to the team, Brian Rice added: “I’ve been trying all summer to get Lee in the door and i’m glad we’ve got him here. He’s someone I know very well, I’ve worked with him twice when he was much younger at Watford and at St Mirren.”

“Lee is here to better the team, The lads will see his attitude and professionalism and will need to use that to inspire them. He’s a good player, one that I wanted first and foremost, anything else is a bonus but I know I’ll get plenty out of Lee.”

Hodson joined up with the squad this morning and is subject to international clearance.
