Player Profile

The ex-Everton and Manchester City man joined Rovers on an initial 2-year deal back in 2019.

The keeper split goalkeeping duties in 18/19 with Joao Virginia and Mateusz Hewelt for Everton at U23 level; signing for Rovers in the hope of more consistent minutes.

Hilton managed just that, looking a safe pair of hands throughout 19-20 for the Under 23s, with his height leading him to be a dominant presence from crosses along with a great shot stopper, keeping four league clean sheets in 14 games.

His kicking was also a valued attribute throughout 19-20 for being able to get the ball quickly up to the top end of the pitch if required to change the method of attack.

The highly rated youngster struggled with an ankle injury at the start of the 20-21 season and will have to compete with the new boys to U23 level; Antonis Stergiakis and Jordan Eastham for the starting berth in the u23s on his return.
