League One Experience

During his time at Manchester United, Ethan Hamilton managed to gain plenty of experience in League One.

He has had spells on loan at Rochdale, Southend United and Bolton Wanderers in the last two seasons.

Hamilton’s contract at Manchester United expired this summer and the Scottish midfielder has found a place with fellow-Scot Darren Ferguson’s promotion-chasing Peterborough side.

Darren is of course the son of legendary Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson.

Hamilton failed to make a senior competitive appearance during his time with the Red Devils.

He has five goals and two assists in his 40 League One appearances to-date.

Ferguson Reveals Previous Attempt to Sign Hamilton on Loan

“I have followed his progress over the last 12 months,” Ferguson told the club’s website.

“He has had a number of loan spells in this league and he is someone I have liked for a while if I am honest.

“He is a good size, a lovely footballer, left-footed and I think he will fit in really well. We enquired about getting him on loan previously, but something happened at Manchester United and it didn’t materialise, so it is great to get it done now. He is on a free now and I think he will be a good signing for us.”

He might be the last Peterborough addition for a few weeks.

Hamilton Keen to Contribute to Attractive Football at the Club

“I am really looking forward to it, when I spoke with the manager, he just reaffirmed what I was thinking, that this is the right place for my development,” Hamilton also told the club website.

“Peterborough play great football; I knew that anyway and playing against them last season demonstrated that even more.

“I’ve had a few loan spells within the league, but it is nice to have a permanent home and I can kick-on and play some football. It is good to get things done now, I can train and hopefully get some minutes under my belt. I have been training on my own for the last few weeks.”
