We are delighted that versatile defender, Ollie Black has agreed terms on a one year deal and will be staying with us for the 2020/21 season.
Ollie had a standout 2019/20 season with solid performances every time he pulled on a jersey for the 'U's, with his consistent battling and the most dangerous of long throws adding to the attack arsenal of the club.
Ollie Black on his signing. "With the management team we have and the ambition this football club has for the future I am excited to commit for the following season. We have business to finish and I can't wait to repay the supporters for the frustrating end to the season we have had. I am looking forward to playing my part and the challenge of winning promotion (again!) next season."
Chris Agutter, Manager said. "I am delighted to have another year working with Ollie Black. His development and progress over the last 18 months means he has become one of the stand out defenders at our level. He is an honest, hardworking, committed and extremely talented player, a perfect fit for us at Hastings United.
Billy Wood, CEO added. "Ollie has played for both clubs I have been involved with and to see the player he is growing into has been something special. His development should be credited to his determination to always be better and he is a huge asset for us both defending and attacking. I am glad Ollie has put pen to paper."
