Hamilton unveiled Everton youngster Korede Adedoyin as a new summer signing recently.
He joins Accies on a season-long loan deal. Having never tasted first-team football before, this is the perfect chance fo the Nigerian forward to get some minutes under his belt.
It might just give Brian Rice’s side that extra spark they need too.
Adedoyin gives Hamilton a different outlet up top
In their most recent outing against Queen’s Park, Accies lacked any real energy or pace. They never had a real spark to kill the game off, even against League Two opposition.
Adedoyin could bring that spark if he gets going. Blessed with pace and decent technical ability, Adedoyin has real energy going forward. He has been good in front of goal at youth level too.
In the U18s Premier League last season, the Nigerian scored 24 goals from 41 appearances. He’s a proven goalscorer at youth level, now all he has to do is get firing at senior level.
With the ability to play on either side of a main striker too, Adedoyin can fill in many attacking options for Rice.
Hamilton need someone who can change a game right now. He’s not experienced but they will be hoping the on-loan Everton striker can be the man to do that.
He’ll be pushing for a starting spot from the very start as Accies look to jump start their season after a disappointing opener against the Spiders.
Hamilton have a special talent on their hands.
