Jake Elliott extends stay for the 2020/21 season

Hastings United are happy to announce Jake Elliott has extended his stay at The ‘U’s for another year and will be with us for the 2020/21 season.

Jake, who joined from Peacehaven & Telscombe was one of our top performers of the 2019/20 season and has rejected advances elsewhere to stay at The Pilot Field.

Jake Elliott on his signing, “It feels good to be signing on for another season at The Pilot Field. I loved my time here last season playing under Chris so therefore it made sense to continue my development where I enjoy playing football. I can’t wait to be back on the pitch in front of our fans!”

Chris Agutter, Manager said, “I am really pleased to have been able to secure Jake for another season. We’ve fought off so much competition to keep him at the club, which is a credit to the environment, the team as a whole and also to Jake who believes we can help him to continue to develop as a player. This is great news for us all!”

Billy Wood, CEO added, “I am absolutely thrilled Jake is staying with us. There was lots of clubs sniffing around a player we highly regard both on and off the pitch and we are delighted he has decided to stay here with us at The Pilot Field. This retention is a credit to Chris and his staff, giving players the attention when it comes to coaching they deserve. Jake turning down opportunities at other clubs in higher leagues also shows how much he believes in our project and it shows the maturity of the player to understand his career is a marathon and not a sprint. I am sure the supporters will be delighted with this.”
