Hunt follows Wainwright to Billingham from Durham
Quinaceo Hunt has been reunited with former Durham City team-mate D’Andre Wainwright at Billingham Synthonia.
The club announced yesterday that they had signed the Bermuda goalkeeper from Northern League Division Two rivals Durham.
“We are delighted to announce the signing of goalkeeper Quinaceo Hunt from Durham City,” a club statement read.
“Quinaceo has played international football for Bermuda at under-17, under-20 and senior levels, including being selected to the Gold Cup in 2019 and is also a former Wakefield player.”
Gary Forster, the Billingham manager, is delighted to have acquired a player of Hunt’s calibre and experience.
“Another pleasing signing,” Forster said. “The lad has operated higher than this level and has ambitions of getting much higher.
“We need to give him a platform to perform and get competitive games under his belt.
“He is his nation’s No 2 keeper and we have beat a number of sides to his signature. For the club it continues to be onwards and upwards.”
When contacted, Hunt said he is “just happy to play”.
Hunt joined Wakefield AFC, who play in the Sheffield and Hallamshire County Senior Football League Premier, the eleventh tier of the English football league pyramid, from PHC Zebras in August 2019.
He missed several few weeks last season after tearing a quad muscle, which he suffered during his team's 2-1 win away to Houghton Main FC in the league in February.
The 20-year-old joined Durham this summer where he briefly played alongside former Bermuda Under-20 team-mate Wainwright before the latter joined Billingham.
Coincidentally, Wainwright made his debut for Billingham against his former team Durham.
