We are incredibly happy to announce that one of our breakout stars from the Hastings United Academy, Tom Chalmers has committed his immediate future with Hastings United and will be part of the First Team Squad for 2020/21 season.
Tom Chalmers broke into the senior set up in the 2019/20 season, making 13 appearances and scoring 4 goals, making his debut at just 17!
Tom Chalmers said on committing his future with the club. “I am happy to be staying in a great team with great ambitions. I will be pushing hard to get as many minutes as possible and I hope I can help the club finish what we started last season. I will work hard for this club to achieve that!”
Chris Agutter, Manager said, “I am really excited to see TC’s progression over the coming season. He has already demonstrated that he is able to make a significant impact at First Team level and it’s now my responsibility to make sure he is given the opportunities to continue to deliver for the club as long as he continues to work hard for the team.”
Billy Wood, CEO added, “TC is a very exciting young player, a class act at such a young age but at the same time just having talent is not enough. In the past year I have paid a lot of attention to his individual development and his work ethic is the reason why he is pushing forward the way he is at such a young age! You sometimes forget Tom is just 17 but with the coaching team around him, the experienced players he will be around more and with a mentor like Chris Agutter, Tom has the opportunity to carve out his own exciting future in football. As a club we are excited by another young local lad pushing through and it’s imperative he keeps his head down, works hard and progresses with the talent he has at his disposal. Hastings United talent committed to moving this club forward!”
