We are delighted to announce that Fulham FC Goalkeeper Luca Ashby-Hammond has signed for the club on a season-long loan!
21 year-old Ashby-Hammond will be looking to build on previous Vanarama National League experience from last season, representing the 2021/22 champions Stockport County on a short-term loan deal, which was later extended until the end of the 2021/22 National League season.
During this time, Ashby-Hammond experienced success in the Hatters’ promotion push as he was involved in 13 Vanarama National League match-day squads towards the back end of last season.
He also played a key part in Stockport’s Cup Competitions last season, playing in the FA Trophy Quarter-Final and Semi-Final and also achieved a victorious Cheshire Senior Cup run, beating League Two side Crewe Alexandra in the final of that competition.
Luca has graduated through the academy ranks at Premier League side Fulham FC, where he made five appearances in Premier League 2, winning four games and keeping clean sheets in three of those victories against the u23s sides of West Brom, Stoke City and Sunderland A.F.C.
The young shot-stopper has also spent time training with their first-team squad over the last couple of seasons as well.
Ashby-Hammond joins the club having represented England numerous times at youth level, featuring at the European Under-17 Championships, as well as during the U19 Qualification stages.
Whilst playing for England U17s in the Euros in 2018, he reached the semi-finals before before being named in the “Team of the Tournament” too.
Ashby-Hammond also joined Harrow Borough on a three-month youth loan in early December 2019, where he made 12 appearances and kept three clean sheets, before going to play for parent club Fulham in their U21’s in an EFL Trophy group match against Cambridge United in early September 2020.
Aldershot Town fans may recognise Luca from his appearance for the club as the Trialist Goalkeeper in our 4-0 victory pre-season game against Badshot Lea too.
Welcome to Aldershot Town Luca!
