Jermaine Hylton excited by ‘perfect opportunity’ after completing Ross County switch

Jermaine Hylton believes Ross County presents the perfect opportunity for him after a quick switch from Motherwell.

Hylton made his debut in the 2-0 defeat against Rangers on Sunday, 48 hours after joining from the Steelmen.

He had played five times in the league for Stephen Robinson’s side but the departure of Josh Mullin meant the Staggies had a need to fill in the wide areas.

Hylton said: “The change was quick so it was more a ‘as-and-when’ thing. Circumstances change so I needed to act and the perfect opportunity came along.

“That’s the thing with football you know things can change very quickly and the click of a finger. It is part and parcel of it you get used to it. I just want to play football the faster it comes along the better.

“A lot has happened in a short space of time but it is all sorted now. It was only a few days before it all got sorted, bit of whirlwind, but I’m buzzing that its all sorted.

“I want to play football, score goals, assist and help the team as much as possible and finish high up the table as I can. I hadn’t seen much Scottish football period so it was a case of learning on the job and learning quick.

Jermaine Hylton made the switch from Motherwell on Friday.

“Everyone has been great, really welcoming nobody has been shy to come and speak to me and make sure I’m OK.”

Hylton scored four goals in 41 games for Motherwell after joining last year. His most prominent spells in England came with Solihull Moors and Swindon Town. The 27-year-old’s best season came in 2018-19, where he scored 12 goals in 45 games for National League side Moors.

He added: “Everyone will be looking to stake their claim – I’ve not met a footballer yet who doesn’t want to stake their claim. We will all be fighting for positions and give the manager a good headache.”
