AFC add Adders pair

Hinckley AFC are delighted to announce the signings of ex-Atherstone Town duo Mitchell Thomson and Mikkel Hirst.

Manager Courtney Belford has quickly swooped to add the pair, who will add strength to attacking and wide areas respectively.

Attacking player Thomson, who can play anywhere behind the front man, scored more than 20 times for Atherstone a couple of seasons ago – including a hat-trick against Hinckley.

He has already found the net three times for them this season, adding to seven goals in 19 starts last term.

Prior to his time at Sheepy Road he played for Bedworth United, Rugby Town, Coventry Sphinx, where he scored 11 times in the Premier Division and was captain for a time, and Nuneaton Griff.

Meanwhile, left sided player Hirst is a St Kitts and Nevis Under 20 international and has “bags of potential” according to manager Courtney Belford.

Capable of playing at left back or on the wing, he has featured for Solihull Moors’ academy side over the last couple of seasons along with a spell in the Midland League Premier Division with Romulus.

The 19-year-old has only scored once this season – but it was a spectacular strike for Atherstone against Kirby Muxloe last month.

Welcome to the club, Mitch and Mikkel!
