Career[edit]

Colchester United[edit]

Hamilton, born in Newham, London, is a versatile player who can either play across the defence or in the heart of midfield. He was one of four young players to be awarded a professional contract by Colchester United at the end of the 2010–11 season.[2] Shortly after signing his contract Hamilton had a loan spell at local non-league side Redbridge alongside Craig Arnott, where he made 9 appearances.[3]

On 22 March 2012 Hamilton went out on loan, this time to another local side, Conference South side Chelmsford for one month, where he failed to make an appearance other than as an unused substitute, before returning to Colchester.[4]

Hamilton made his senior debut for Colchester coming on for Andrew Bond with 5 minutes to go in a 4–2 win against Tranmere Rovers on 28 April 2012.[5]

On 30 November 2012, Hamilton was sent out on loan once again to Chelmsford alongside teammate Thomas Bender until 7 January 2013.[6] He came on as a 76th-minute substitute in an FA Cup second round tie against Crawley Town on 1 December 2012, a game which the Clarets lost 3–0.[7] His loan with Chelmsford was extended until the end of the 2012–13 season in January 2013.[8]

Concord Rangers[edit]

After falling out of favour under Colchester manager Joe Dunne, Hamilton was released at the end of his contract with the club. He joined newly promoted Conference South side Concord Rangers in June 2013.[9]
