United prospect Hamilton goes out on loan

Friday 11 January 2019 12:00

Manchester United prospect Ethan Hamilton has agreed to spend the rest of the 2018/19 season on loan at Rochdale.

The 20-year-old midfielder will link up with manager Keith Hill at the Crown Oil Arena in League One, hoping to gain invaluable experience in the senior ranks after impressing at youth level in recent seasons. 

Hamilton is yet to make a competitive first-team appearance for United, but he was named on the bench for last season’s Emirates FA Cup win against Huddersfield Town and later took part in the pre-season tour of America alongside several of his team-mates from the club's Academy.
Hamlton was among the young players in United's US tour squad last summer.
Ethan was nominated for the prestigious Denzil Haroun Reserve Team Player of the Year award last season and notably signed his first professional contract at Old Trafford back in July, when the lifelong United fan spoke passionately about his desire to progress.

It remains to be seen if Hamilton will be available for Rochdale’s League One match against Peterborough United at the ABAX Stadium on Saturday. If not, a debut could arrive when Fleetwood Town visit the Crown Oil Arena the following weekend.

Good luck to Ethan for his loan spell at Rochdale.
