The Club is pleased to announce the signing of 20 year old striker Daniel Ajakaiye from Kingstonian FC for an undisclosed fee. This signing was able to be completed via the use of funding from the Fans Players Fund (FPF). The Club would like to thank all persons who have made contributions to date.
Daniel becomes the newest member of Hastings United’s young and exciting First Team squad.
‘U’s boss Agutter commented, ‘Daniel is THE player that I’ve been after from day one of being the Hastings United Manager, the boy is absolutely electric and will give us a completely different dimension in forward areas, now teams will have to think twice about high pressing against us as we now have that x-factor pace up top that we’ve been lacking. In an injured, disjointed 90 minute spell on loan with us last season Daniel scored one and setup two….a fully fit Daniel Ajakaiye within our working environment on a permanent basis will result in a lot of goals-we are all very excited.’
On the move Ajakaiye explained, ‘I’m extremely delighted to be joining Hastings United. I came on loan to the Club last season for a month but this was quickly cut short due to injury, but at the time as soon as I came through the door the staff and players made me feel so welcome, It already felt like home for me and from that moment I knew this was the right club for me to go to for my career to move forward. They believe in me as much as I believe in them so I am looking forward to the season ahead with great things expected to happen.’
