We are delighted to announce we have extended Ollie Black’s contract and the player will remain at The ‘U’s for the 2021/22 season.
A real fan’s favourite and robust defender, Ollie Black has grown in stature at The TGS Pilot Field for his no nonsense approach and physics defying long throw.
“We’ve show we have the best team and coaching staff in the league, and I can’t wait to get started again. Luck with the promotion situation hasn’t been on our side but hopefully it’s third time lucky and this year we will get to finish a job we started a couple of years back, finally delivering to The ‘U’s supporters their much deserved promotion.”
Chris Agutter (First Team Manager):
“OB is without fail one of the first names on the team sheet. Honest, hardworking and a fighter, an individual who’s been a central figure to our recent success and will no doubt contribute to our future success. With OB’s signature we have our sights firmly set on the 2021/22 season.”
Billy Wood (CEO):
“The work never stops at Hastings and today I am glad to we get to announce the first bit of business completed for 2021/22. Ollie is such a great lad to have around the club and I am delighted he is continuing to be part of our future; I think Ollie could be a future Hastings United captain and showed so by donning the armband in pre-season this year. A well-deserved extension and more to come.”
