Swindon Town are delighted to announce the signing of Hallam Hope from Carlisle for an undisclosed fee.
Hope signs on an 18-month contract, keeping him at the club until June 2021. The deal is subject to EFL approval.
Born in Manchester, the 25-year-old forward started out at Everton as a trainee but never made a first-team appearance with the Toffees. He was sent on-loan to Northampton, Bury and Sheffield Wednesday before joining the Shakers permanently in November 2014.
After featuring heavily for the Greater Manchester club between then and 2017, Hope moved to Carlisle, originally on-loan before making the move permanent in June 2017.
He has since made 123 appearances for the Cumbrians scoring 31 goals, mainly from the left of an attacking three.
Last season he bagged 17 goals at Brunton Park while under the stewardship of John Sheridan and, now-Swindon coach, Tommy Wright as Carlisle fell just short of the play-offs. The season before he hit the net 13 times in League Two.
Hope also has international pedigree – he appeared for all England youth ranks up until Under-19 before turning out for Barbados at the CONCACAF Nations League qualifiers. In September 2019, Hope returned to international duty for Barbados scoring twice in a 3-0 victory over the Cayman Islands.
