Hamilton complete double swoop for Tshiembe and Marsden
Accies have announced the signings of Delphin Tshiembe and Jacob Marsden.
Hamilton have completed a double swoop for Delphin Tshiembe and former Ipswich goalkeeper Jacob Marsden.
Tshiembe, who is comfortable playing at centre-back or in centre-midfield, will play his football outside of Denmark for the first time in his career at Accies.
The 26-year-old, born in DR Congo, came through the youth ranks at FC Copenhagen before turning out at senior level for five other Danish clubs.
Most recently, Tshiembe helped AC Horsens to a 6th place finish in the Superliga before departing the club at the end of last season.
Accies boss Martin Canning said: ”Delph adds physical presence and experience having played top-level football in Denmark.”
”He’s a strong, powerful player who is equally as comfortable in central defence as he is in central midfield. We’ve been working hard to strengthen the team and will continue to do so.”
Accies have also finalised a move for former Ipswich keeper Marsden, who left the Tractor Boys at the end of the 2016/17 campaign before a brief spell in the non-league game.
The 21-year-old, who gained first team experience with St Ives Town and Mildenhall, impressed Canning enough over a stint training with the club to earn a deal.
Canning continued: "Jacob has been in training at the club, has shown up well in games and adds competition to Woodsy and Ryan in the strong goalkeeping department we have here."
