Hard-working Sincere Hall rewarded with Hull City contract
Sincere Hall is determined to prove himself and achieve his objectives at new club Hull City.
The Bermudian winger, 17, recently signed a professional deal with the Sky Bet Championship side, where he will continue his development playing for their under-18 academy team under manager John Anderson.
“I’m very excited to be joining Hull City and I’m looking forward to featuring this season,” Hall commented on the club’s official website. “I’m hoping to play as many minutes as I can at any age group.
“Obviously, I want to prove myself at under-18 level and push on to the under-23s. But my main target is to score goals to help the team, and I’m going to be doing everything I can to hit those targets.”
The teenager had trials for Hull last season, scoring against Charlton Athletic in the under-18 Professional Development League.
“I’m very thankful that the club have given me this opportunity, as I’ve been on a few trials,” Hall added. “I kept going and persevering, and I feel this is my reward for all my hard work.
“The facilities are good and they will help me in my development. The players and coaching staff have been very welcoming and very encouraging, and that can only help me going forward.”
Nigel Burgess, the Hamilton Parish goalkeeper, recalls coaching Hall at both under-nine and under-11 levels at the club.
“Sincere was a very versatile player,” he said. “He liked to play up front but he was willing to play in the midfield or down the back or whatever was needed.
“He had the capabilities to play around the field because he had a good understanding of the game even at an early age. That was one of his assets; his ability to understand and read the game even at a young level.”
Burgess is delighted to see the player reaping reward for his hard work ethic and dedication.
“Sincere has definitely put in the dedication over the years and it’s a very deserving reward for him,” he said.
Hall has joined Hull from the British-based Kinetic Foundation Academy.
“Really proud of Sincere and developments he’s made to make the step into professional football,” Harry Hudson, the organisation’s co-founder, said in a press release.
“When he came to us, he always had ability but needed to work on the defensive side of his game.
“He’s really become an animal off the ball and so productive on the ball, with goals and assists, that it was only a matter of time [before he turned professional].
“Sincere is a really exciting player who’s got a bright future in the game, so we look forward to seeing his progress.”
