Statement by the Board of Directors Hamilton Academical Football Club

We would firstly like to apologise to our fans for the lack of information from the club.

Like yourselves the relegation was a bitter blow to everyone associated with Hamilton Accies.

In a season where everything that could have gone wrong, went wrong, the board made countless mistakes, our management and football team could have and should have done better, we are aware that our 36-game campaign came up well short of protecting Championship football.

So as Hamilton Accies Football Club prepares for League One football, a change of ownership could well be imminent, negotiations have been ongoing for some time now and hopefully there will be a positive announcement soon.

The potential new owners have been working with the Board to ensure that everything is in place for the new 2023/24 campaign, talks are ongoing with existing players, their agents and potential new signings, and information should start to flow through in due course.

We have appointed a new media officer, who will take control of all social media communications.

At this point we are able to report that Hamilton Accies will remain a full time football club, with our Elite Youth Academy fully protected.

We realise the frustrations of many of our supporters, although to get us back to where all want to be we must somehow find a way to totally unite – One Club, One Badge!

Hamilton Accies head coach John Rankin said: “Over the last few weeks I have been aware of ongoing talks at boardroom level, this has nothing to do with me or our plans for the forthcoming season.

“We have been working in due course to bring in new signings and strengthen the squad. We have held talks with a number of players, some of whom have already agreed to be a part of our journey and others who are still on holiday.

“Once everything is complete we will be excited to announce these players in due course and obviously with players coming in, some always go and some think other offers are more appealing and we wish them all the best for their future career.

“This is a time of transition for the club going forward and we ask everyone to come together and play their part in making us successful again.”
