ACCIES are delighted to announce the signing of Johnny Hunt following the end of his contract at Stevenage, subject to international clearance.  

The 28-year-old, who has a wealth of experience in the English leagues, is the latest player to put pen to paper for us.

Liverpool born Hunt started his career at Wrexham where he will be most remembered for scoring the winning penalty in the 2013 FA Trophy  Final at Wembley Stadium.

He then went on to play for Cambridge United, Chester, Mansfield & most recently Stevenage where his contract ended at the end of June 2019. 

Head coach, Brian Rice said: “I’m delighted to sign Johnny for Hamilton. He’s a player I’ve watched a few times and I know he’s the type of player and character that will do well here.

“He has that never quit attitude that I look for in my players and with his experience of playing south of the border I feel this could be a great move for him.

Speaking to AcciesTV, Hunt said: “I’m really happy, once I knew the club was interested I wanted to get the deal done as soon as possible, so I could meet the squad and get ready for the season that lies ahead.

“I treat every game as a rivalry, that’s the time of player I am. Coming up against Motherwell is a game I’m particularly looking forward to.

Hunt has been with the squad in Largs over the weekend as part of their pre-season training.
