Stone signs on!

We are delighted that Craig Stone has put pen to paper on a one year new contract extending his stay at the ‘U’s for the 2020/21 season.

Forming a formidable partnership with Gary Elphick, ’Stoney’ was part of the colossal defensive record at Hastings United last season but don’t be fooled, Craig Stone is also the winner of our 2019/20 Goal of the Season competition!!!

Craig Stone said, “I just want to reiterate what my team mates have said, we have too much unfinished business left as history making was taken away from us. I love playing for this club, the style of play is just too addictive and I couldn’t walk away from that!”

Chris Agutter, Manager said, “I am delighted that Stoney is with us moving forwards. He is such a crucial part of the team both on and off the pitch, a winner and still as hungry as ever to achieve success. Stoney and Gaz as a pair formed an exceptional central defensive partnership and from day one of lockdown it’s been my aim to keep them both with us, I am absolutely chuffed.”

Billy Wood, CEO added, “Stoney, a warrior on the pitch and a family man off it is a great example to have at the football club. A very committed individual who doesn’t settle for second best and we are really happy to have him committed to our football club.”

Craig Stone will combine his role at Hastings United with his role as coach at Gillingham Football Club.
