Hastings United Football Club are delighted to announce the signing of Irish full back Tommy Cooney who joins from Pitching In Isthmian Premier side Leatherhead.
Cooney, joins The ‘U’s following spells in Sweden and Finland and is available for tomorrow’s clash vs Ashford United.
Tommy Cooney: “I am really happy to have joined such an ambitious club, when Gary sold me the club’s long-term plans and where he sees me in that made it a pretty easy decision. The main thing that attracted me was the way the team play, I like to get forward on the ball and I feel the style of football Gary wants to play will get the best out of me. I am looking forward to doing what I can for the supporters and all at the club.”
Gary Elphick: “It’s great to have Tommy on board, he adds quality and experience to the group. He is a very good footballer who is coming down from a higher league and I look forward to seeing him in a Hastings shirt.”
Billy Wood: “It’s great to have Tommy in the door and adds another dimension to what we have here. Ultimately my job is to make sure we as a club have the resources to challenge the way we want to and this signing is one we wanted to get done to add a little bit more to this fantastic squad. I am looking forward to seeing Tommy flourish for The ‘U’s.”
