Career[edit]

Hanks was still a youth team player when he was promoted to the first team for pre-season training in 2012.[2] He made his professional debut on 27 October 2012, in a 3–0 win over Exeter City in the Football League Two, coming on as a substitute for Sam Deering.[3]

In August 2013, he joined Southern League side Bishop's Cleeve on loan.[4]

On 14 March 2014, Hanks joined Conference North side Gloucester City on a one-month loan deal.[5]

On the first day of the 2014–15 season, he came on as a substitute and scored his first senior goal, and the winner as his club beat Bury.[6]

On 20 September 2014 Hanks came off the bench to score his second professional goal, an 87th-minute equaliser in a 1-1 draw against Dagenham & Redbridge.[7] Over the course of the season, Hanks has established himself as a key part of midfield as Cheltenham Town relegated to the National League.

Hanks made a substitute appearance against Lincoln City on the first day of the 2015–16 season. Then, he was loaned out to the National League North neighbours Gloucester City till January.[8] On 9 December it was announced that his contract will not be renewed at the end of the season.[9]

He has since signed for Gloucester City.
