Ryman League Premier Division club Hastings United continue their run of six consecutive away fixtures with a visit to…
….Imber Court to take on fourth-placed Metropolitan Police today.
Sean Ray’s side should travel in good spirits, after winning back-to-back away games at Tooting & Mitcham United and Canvey Island, the first time in over two years that they achieved that feat, whilst the 4-0 friendly win on Tuesday evening over Bexhill United saw a fit again Kenny Pogue back amongst the scorers with two goals.
Also on target that night was former Brighton loanee Jordan Woodley, now released by the Championship club, but who will not be returning to the Pilot Field and is understood to have joined Rye United.
The U’s have added a couple of new players to their squad as a consequence however, with highly-rated striker Billy Medlock arriving from Eastbourne Borough, where he has progressed through the youth and reserve team ranks to the fringes of the senior side.
The 19-year-old joins on a dual registration basis, not long after enjoying a successful stint with Redhill in the County League.
And returning to the Pilot Field after a near four year absence is attacking midfielder Danny Ellis, who was last seen in United colours back in January 2008.
Now 25, Ellis has signed from Bexhill United, whom he joined from Rye at the start of this season.
He made his U’s debut in October 2003, going on to make 127 appearances, scoring fourteen goals, the last coming away to Walton Casuals in March 2007.
