The Club is pleased to confirm that last seasons Players’ Player of the Year Sam Beale will be returning for the 2018-19 campaign.
Beale said, ‘First of all, I’d like to thank everyone involved with Hastings United Football Club for last season. It was a very positive first season, one in which I enjoyed thoroughly. There’s a great bunch of lads at the Club as well as passionate and driven staff. The brand of football that both the Gaffer and Browny have us playing is a dream to be a part of, which is a big factor for me committing for another year. A great Club, with great fans and I can’t wait to get together with the boys in pre season and get a squad ready to challenge.’
Agutter commented, ‘Sam was superb for us last season, in my opinion, the best Left Back in the league, he’s an intelligent lad, understands how I want us to play and most importantly is the right type of character-a leader in the dressing room who says it exactly how it is. The challenge for Sam is to make sure he stays fit and can have a positive impact over the 38 game league campaign-if he does this then there’s no doubt this is up there with our best summer business to date.’
