Merthyr Town Football Club was delighted to announce the signing of attacking player Tom Hillman yesterday evening from Larkhall Athletic.
Following his move, the 19-year-old spoke to merthyrtownfc.co.uk: it’s an absolute honour to join such a big club like Merthyr, also it’s my local club which is, of course, is a big bonus for me".
"When Gavin approached me it was a no brainier as I know how big the club is and the expectations it has and I want to fulfill those during my time here".
Speaking about the up and coming season, he continued: "I can’t wait for the new campaign, I'm absolutely buzzing to meet up with the boys and get the season off to a good start. Without football, for so long I just can’t wait to get out there and get that match-winning feeling back. It's going to be an extremely tough season as there's a lot of good teams in the Premiership South but it's a season which I'm very much looking forward to featuring in".
"My aims for the season are to become a regular starter and then help the team to as many goals and assists as possible, which will hopefully stand us in good stead for a play-off place.
