Full Contact client Freddy Hall has today signed for promotion chasing League Two club Burton Albion.
Freddy, 29, is the Bermudan no.1 goalkeeper whose last club was Toronto in the MLS. After being out of the game for over a year, save for international duty, Freddy joined forces with Full Contact as part of a wider collaboration with Bermudan football.
After impressing manager Gary Rowett and keeper coach Kevin Poole sufficiently whilst on trial with Burton Albion, Freddy has landed a short term contract until the end of the season.
Dan Chapman, senior partner of Full Contact, said “Freddy is a key part of the project we are undertaking with a number of players from Bermuda. He is their no.1 keeper, and a real talisman on the island. It is great for him to now have this opportunity to prove himself in the UK, which we are confident he will do. Burton is a progressive club, who train at excellent facilities, and it’s a great place for Freddy to come to.”
Lee Payne, head of Full Contact’s Football Agency team, said “Freddy is a very talented goalkeeper who still has many good years ahead of him. He had a short spell in the UK before (at Northampton) and did well in the MLS, and of course represents his country. He has a great attitude, and in taking this opportunity at Burton Albion he is backing himself to impress and win a longer term contract, and ultimately make a real name for himself in England.”
We wish Freddy and Burton Albion the best for the remainder of the season.
