After seven years in the First Division, it collided with Hamilton Academic Football Club in the preseason. The “Accies” didn’t get much on board, especially in their own stadium.
Only two wins in the 16 home games of the regular season were not enough. Furthermore, with 67 goals in 38 games, the club was the weakest defense in the Premiership.
For this Second Division season, Hamilton has made an immediate resurgence on the flags. But if it had been missed, it would not have been a drama either.
By Favorites for promotion with Hamilton include Kilmarnock, Partick Thistle and Dunfermline.. The charge continues to rely on coach Brian Rice, who has been overseeing the team since January 2019.
For a small club, the fact that you could play First Division for so long with such a modest budget was a huge achievement. There was no real turmoil in the squad either.
Only three players moved to another club. In contrast, the Second Division team has so far only had four new players. The championship season for HAFC will begin on 31 July with an away game against Wraith Rovers.
In the League Cup, the relegated player wants to set the first exclamation mark and get in shape for the championship. Last year the team was knocked out in the group stage of the cup with two wins and two losses.
Dress rehearsals for the first competitive game were also unsuccessful. Hamilton admitted a clear 0:5 bankruptcy against First Division club Dundee.
