Hamilton, 21, is a former Birmingham City and AFC Bournemouth youngster who has most recently been playing for step three Alvechurch, one division below the Bucks.

He checks into the New Bucks Head from the same level as first signing Kai Williams, who arrived earlier this month from Barwell. Hamilton joins his fellow new-boy in penning a one-year deal.

Both forwards caught the eye of boss Gavin Cowan during Telford's trial fixtures last month. The Telford chief was keen to run the rule over a string of talent from other levels as he rebuilds his Bucks squad for next season.

Hamilton started in Blues' academy before switching to Bournemouth's youth set-up following a successful trial in 2018. He was a regular in the Cherries' development side and played in Senior Cup fixtures, as well as training with Eddie Howe's first team. He also had loans out at Salisbury and Gosport Borough.

But the centre-forward was released last summer and has since impressed for the Church, from who he joined Telford's league rivals Leamington briefly on duel registration in January before the campaign was null and voided.

Cowan has revealed a change in approach for the summer – with the pandemic affecting his playing budget – the boss has looked to bring in talent from lower divisions in order to bring a hunger and desire to thrive in National League North.
