The Club is thrilled to confirm that former Gillingham, Ebbsfleet Utd, Dover Athletic and Eastbourne Borough player Craig Stone joins the ‘U’s for the 2019-20 season.
On the signing the Gaffer said, ‘Brilliant piece of business for the Club, Stoney is an out and out winner….he’s won 4 promotions from leagues above including the old Nationwide Conference National. We worked together at Eastbourne Borough where Stoney was very important to a team competing for the playoffs in the National League South, he’s been there and done it and will help our young group in a big way.’
Agi added, ‘Stoney will also be assisting myself, Browny and Pete with First Team Coaching…..Craig is first and foremost a player but is also a very talented coach who will add more quality, knowledge and experience to the coaching staff….what our younger players can’t learn about football from the likes of Stoney, Gaz, Dicko and Sammy isn’t worth knowing.’
On signing Craig commented, ‘Looking forward to getting started, it’s a new challenge for me as a player/coach-I’m looking forward to every minute of it and assisting Aggy getting Hastings United promoted’
