Adam Hammill was undoubtedly a player of real talent.
After coming through the youth ranks with Premier League champions Liverpool it was hoped that the winger would go on to have a top career at the highest level.
While that didn’t quite happen he certainly showed his worth in the EFL.
Hammill first moved to Barnsley on loan from the Premier League side in 2009 when he spent half a season on loan at Oakwell before joining the club on a permanent basis in August 2009.
After 18 months with the club he was handed an opportunity in the top flight with Wolves but ended up back in the Championship with Huddersfield Town a year later.
The big Barnsley quiz: Can you get 20/20?
A mixed spell with the Terriers ended when Hammill rejoined Barnsley on a short-term deal in November 2015.
But that short deal was extended and the winger spent almost three more years at Oakwell to take his total appearance count to 199.
After scoring 26 goals and creating 29 more, Hammill spent a short spell with St Mirren before joining Scunthorpe United for 18 months until last summer.
Since then the former Liverpool man joined League Of Ireland side Derry City where he has made 14 appearances for the club since arriving in July 2020.
At 33 years of age he’ll no doubt be hoping to end his career in style by strutting his stuff once again in Ireland.
