Nathan Thomas has promised creativity for Hamilton Accies following his transfer from Sheffield United.

The 26-year-old winger has signed for Brian Rice’s side following a spell at Sheffield United. Last season, he spent time out on loan at League Two side Carlisle United.

Thomas started his career in the youth academy systems of Newcastle and Sunderland before foraying into senior football. Form for Hartlepool United won him a move to Sheffield United in 2017.

A former Motherwell player, Thomas was unable to break into the Blades senior side, making a few cameo appearances before his contract expired in the summer.


He now joins Accies in their fight to survive in the Scottish Premiership. He could make his debut on Sunday as Rice’s men travel to Ibrox for a daunting task against Rangers. Thomas has described what fans in South Lanarkshire can expect.

“I’m direct, I like to score goals and create goals, that’s my biggest attributes,” he said (Accies TV). “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.”
