Revolving door at the U’s

As the long Hastings United season draws to a close, perhaps it’s a case of what should’ve been, rather than what could’ve been. After last season’s play-off disappointment, the only way for the U’s seemed to be up. With high expectations from seemingly every supporter, HOT’s Liam Willis analyses how the season has panned out.

Sean Ray

Razor resigns

Player/manager Sean Ray has resigned as manager of Hastings United Football Club with immediate effect , writes HOT’s Liam Willis. This came as a shock to the players, staff and fans of the football club as he had given the Hastings United community a lot of belief and it seemed that he had it all planned out about the imminent future of the club.

“I want to win the league” – chairman Dave Walters

Hastings United’s season came to a sad end – finishing bottom of the Ryman Premier League and being relegated into the Ryman League South. United had a remarkable FA Cup run that was described as ‘phenomenal’ by club chairman Dave Walters. It seemed that United saved their form for the cup runs, reaching the third round of the FA Cup and getting to the semi-final and quarter-final of the Sussex Senior Cup and the Ryman League Cup respectively. After United’s final match win against Kingstonian on Saturday, HOT’s Liam Willis interviewed club chairman Dave Walters, manager Sean Ray and supporters’ Player of the Season, Danny Ellis.

Nothing resulted from this goalmouth scramble, but it was Hastings which scored the only goal of the match against Kingstonian.

Hastings bid farewell with three points

The final game for Hastings United in the Ryman Premier League saw them host Kingstonian, hoping to do the double over the Ks. United were confirmed relegated on Thursday evening but to sign off with three points would give the players a boost to go into next season. United, in 22nd place with 36 points, and Kingstonian, in 11th with 59 points, went head to head at the Pilot Field on Saturday 27 April. The match report and photos are by HOT’s Liam Willis.
