United's Ethan Hamilton leaves positive impression as second loan ends
Clubs in League One and League Two voted to end their seasons this week, meaning the end of the campaign for a handful of Manchester United loanees.
Cameron Borthwick-Jackson’s spell at Tranmere, George Tanner at Salford City, and Ethan Hamilton at Bolton Wanderers have all now kicked their last ball in 2019/20.
Hamilton was on his second loan spell of the year at Bolton Wanderers.
He began the season with Southend, before a January switch of clubs to their League One relegation rivals Bolton.
The Scottish midfielder bid farewell to Bolton fans on social media yesterday, thanking them for their support.
It says a lot about the impression Hamilton made that his replies were inundated from Bolton fans urging him to come back.
Bolton were relegated to League Two, but Hamilton clearly made a good impression in his 12 appearances for the club, in which he scored once from midfield.
What’s next for Hamilton?
Hamilton turned 21 earlier this season and it would appear time has run out for him to crack Manchester United’s first team.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer had a look at him in first team training in January 2019 shortly after he was appointed.
Hamilton is a promising player who has impressed during various League One loan spells over the last two seasons, scoring six first team goals.
His contractual situation is unclear, but it makes sense for Hamilton to move on, and find a club where he can kick on and play regularly.
It can’t be easy being shipped around, on loan at three club in two seasons, and he will now have the confidence and experience to kick on.
A return to Bolton might not be a bad move despite their relegation. It would give him the chance to play for a team battling for promotion next season, which would be far more uplifting than the challenges he has had this past campaign.
