Born and brought up in Manchester, the skilful attacking midfielder has progressed through the Club’s age groups with great distinction since joining City as an Under-9.
Blessed with impressive versatility, Hamilton can operate either through the middle but also out wide where he has harnessed his blistering pace to hurt defences at all age groups.
Now Hamilton could be in line to make his senior bow for Pep Guardiola’s side as we kick-off our Carabao Cup campaign this evening with a trip to tackle Eddie Howe’s side.
Having made his mark through successive age groups at City, the 19-year-old tasted Premier League Under-18 north action for the first time in 2018/19 before making his next appearance in the competition the following season as City came first in the regional section.
However, it was during the 2020/21 campaign where Hamilton truly made his mark on the competition by harnessing his natural goal-scoring ability alongside his talent and technique.
He found the target regularly as City’s Under-18s marched towards both the northern regional title and national crown.
Across that campaign, the England youth international scored 11 goals and registered eight assists in 22 league appearances – averaging a goal contribution at a rate of just under one per game.
Hamilton continued his fine career progression in the following 2021/22 season, one which also saw him make maiden appearances in both the UEFA Youth League and EFL Trophy while he was also regularly included in our Elite Development Squad as City lifted the Premier League 2 title for a second successive campaign.
Though much of last season saw him sidelined through injury, upon his return in March he scored three goals and registered one assist to help City’s Under-21s go on to secure a third successive PL2 title.
Hamilton has kicked on again so far this term, captaining the EDS at the start of the new campaign where he has already provided three goals to his colleagues in five matches.
Throughout his time with City, our starlet has passed every test with flying colours when he has been challenged with stepping up an age group.
Now he’ll be aiming to grasp the next opportunity with both hands if he is introduced onto the senior stage on Tyneside.
