The Club is pleased to announce that on Saturday 14th April 2018 for our home fixture against Shoreham FC we will be introducing a new initiative called the Fans’ Player Fund or FPF!
The FPF is an opportunity for our loyal supporters to contribute directly to the Club’s First Team playing budget.
How does the FPF work? HUFC will create opportunities for supporters to donate to the fund, including Match-Day Bucket Collections, Raffles, Auctions of various HUFC and Football memorabilia, Regular Monthly Donations as well as one-off contributions. Importantly! 100% of all monies raised will be used to help Chris (Aggy) and his staff invest in and develop a First Team squad that is capable of fulfilling both the Club’s and the supporters’ambitions!
Our Manager Chris Agutter commented, ‘I think it’s a fantastic idea, the money donated could be the difference between me being able to secure a 30+ goal a season Centre Forward or not, which as we all know could well be the difference between playoffs and automatic promotion. I also love the fact that the Club is giving our incredible fan base some ownership in terms of directly contributing to the quality of player that we are able to put on the pitch which can only have a positive impact on Hastings United FC!!
On behalf of the First Team staff and playing squad, we thank you in advance for your continued support…COYUs!’
At our next home match against Shoreham FC, there will be volunteers with buckets collecting for the FPF so if United fans could find some money to put into the pot hopefully the Fund will have a positive start.
