Matthew Kilgallon

We are delighted to announce the signing of central defender Matthew Kilgallon subject to international clearance.

Kilgallon brings a wealth of experience having racked up nearly 400 appearances  in the English Premier League and Championship after starting his career at Leeds United before spells at West Ham, Sunderland, Middlesbrough, Sheffield United and Blackburn. 

Last season, 34 year old Kilgallon made 42 League One appearances for Bradford City whilst also picking up the Bantams’ Player of the Year award.

Manager Martin Canning said: ‘’We’re really pleased to be able to bring someone of Matt’s calibre to the Club.”

”We’ve had to be patient in our search but it was important we brought in the right person and we feel as though we’ve done that.’’

”Matt brings significant quality, experience and leadership having played at the highest level. His performances last year and his desire to come up here show he’s still got a lot to give.’’


Stay tuned to AcciesTV tonight to hear Matt’s first interview since becoming an Accies’ player.
