Hull City has seen an upturn in their fortunate over the last few weeks, and it’s proven to be one of their best seasons ever. Despite the global lockdowns and the pandemic, the players have remained in hopeful, and training resumed for much of the season. We’ve seen a few losses, but overall, the Tigers have made excellent headway so far this year, and it looks to be a promising future for the next few months ahead.
The long-term signing of Nathan Baxter is one of the highlights of recent events, along with other new players that should prove to round out the team nicely for upcoming events.
Nathan Baxter’s New Signing
The Tigers have recently announced that Nathan Baxter has been signed on to the team for the rest of the season. The 22-year-old player who has shown nothing but talent from the start is on loan from Chelsea, who are currently in the Premier League. The young star has made over 150 appearances during his loans, of which he has been with a total of six clubs, with one of the most recent being Accrington when they were playing in League One during the previous season.
Baxter will be playing as goalkeeper for the Tigers, and the player has a total of seven clean sheets for the appearances that has been in during his time with Stanley and was able to save 3 out of the 4 penalties that were sent his way. Before that, he had been on a loan in Scotland, where he played for Ross County and impressed everyone present, claiming 5 Player of The Season trophies over the course of the 2018/19 season.
Before moving there, he was keeping for Solihull Moors as well as Metropolitan Police and was also voted Player of The Year at this time. Head coach McCann has stated that he is extremely pleased that the team has been able to acquire Nathan for the long-term loan and that they have had their eye on the talented young player for quite some time.
Along with Baxter, the Tigers have also acquired Randell Williams, who has signed on for a two-year deal that may see him stay for another year with the club if all goes well. Playing as wide, the London-based 24-year-old started with the Tigers from the beginning of July after his contract came to an end with Exeter. He’s already turned many heads during his time playing at St James’ Park, where he was able to claim nine goals over a course of 87 appearances in a contract that had last over two years. Much like Baxter, Williams has earned his fair share of notable titles along the way, including the Player of The Season away for his performance in the 2019/20 season.
Both players have brought enormous skill to the team and will no doubt be welcomed with open arms as Hull City continues to make its way forward.
