The Club are delighted to announce it has been granted Charter Standard Development Club status by the FA who said in their confirmation letter to the Club ‘Congratulations to you and those individuals at Hastings United FC for Achieving the FA Charter Standard Club accreditation. Your Club can be PROUD to be recognised as one that is committed to raising standards throughout grassroots football, ensuring that it is well organised, well managed and providing a positive experience for all players, coaches and volunteers’.

The Club would like to thank Christian Kipps, Roger Bond, Dean White and Ben White of Skiltek who assisted substantially with the putting together of the Club’s Charter Standard application.

The FA Charter Standard Development is aimed at clubs who are enhancing the quality and scope of their football offering which the Club has very much achieved via its successful and very professional academy operation run under the management of Skiltek.

The next step for the Club will be to eventually obtain Community Club accreditation which acknowledges the most advanced level of club development and football provision. This the Club will seek once it is operating from new facilities that can accommodate the requirements necessary for Community Club status to be achieved.

Dave Nessling,
Chairman.
