We are delighted to announce the signing of prolific forward, Jordan Hulme.
The striker arrives at Mill Farm from National League side, Altrincham FC for an undisclosed fee, on a one-year contract, with a further year option in the clubs favour.
The 29-year-old played against Jim Bentley’s side the pre-season friendly last weekend, which ended 2-2, but will now be switching changing rooms going forward.
With 139 career appearances to his name whilst at Alty and 70 goals to show for that, the striker arrives with a strong reputation in the game. He will now be looking to bring his experience and confidence to the club, following a promotion winning season from National League North during 2019/20.
Described on altrinchamfc.com as ‘one of Alty’s leading lights’, Jordan is a player that the management and recruitment team have been tracking for some time. The staff at Mill Farm have spoken openly of their ‘delight’ in adding vital firepower to the forward areas, in the shape of the former Salford City, Ramsbottom and Padiham FC striker.
Speaking to afcfylde.co.uk, Jordan said: “I’m honestly over the moon. It’s a chance to get back into full-time football and see what I can do when I’m training every day, it’s a dream come true and I can’t wait to get going.
“I’m here to win, I’m a winner. I don’t like playing football unless I’m winning games and trying to win leagues.”
Jim Bentley was delighted to secure another key target for his side, telling afcfylde.co.uk: “Jordan has a fantastic goal record throughout his career and even more so over the last three years with Altrincham. He’s got over 20 goals in each of the last three years, so he absolutely knows where the net is. He has been keen to get back into full-time football and we can offer him that here.
“He’s another good character, which is what we want, and he’s also extremely hard-working so he will lead the line well. He’s competitive, scores goals and we needed another option up-top with Kurt Willoughby being our only other out and out centre forward. Jordan is another welcome addition!”
