FROM THE BOARDROOM WELCOME Welcome back to the Pilot Field as we take on Whitehawk in FA Trophy action! I would like to welcome the management, players, committee and supporters of Whitehawk who make the journey over again after being here in league action just under two months ago. That game has a significant importance to me on a personal level. The day after that game, a 2-0 win I may add, I was announced as CEO of the U’s. Many won’t have realised but the night before my appointment I came along to watch and taking in the atmosphere on a Tuesday night any smidge of doubt for making the move eroded as Aggy’s team delivered a convincing performance to the happiness of our faithful.
and 50/50, a couple weeks ago I made a comment about Barbara’s knitting and less than a week later she delivers me a HUFC branded woolly gift! That present will make an appearance on Twitter this week and will live in the Boardroom on display! It’s the little connections like that I love at this club.
On Tuesday we announced Hastings United ON DEMAND. An online streaming service that for £9.99 ($12.99 as it states online due to it being an American server) a month, all footage past, present and going forward will be available on there. We are going to make it a comprehensive video library of our amazing football club. If anyone has any footage they want to share or contribute do not hesitate to get in touch or pull Fast-forward on and today we welcome them me aside at the game today. Please support this back, personally, just like every U’s supporter I initiative, the more subscribers we have the am wishing for another victory here today! more content we can create! Last weekend we comfortably dispatched Hythe The last few weeks the drum has returned, the Town in league action, the conditions were noise levels have risen and today we are going treacherous but we made sure the game went to have to sing in unison! Whitehawk fans are a ahead and that has everything to do with the passionate bunch but I have no doubt our amazing team we have here at the Pilot Field. I support will drown them out. would like to say a big thank you to each and every member of staff and volunteers who Be Loud! Be Proud! Be United! worked tirelessly to deliver the game last Saturday, we got through the wind and rain, and #WinnersDoMore thankfully we did as we extended our unbeaten league streak!

MANAGER’S NOTES Good afternoon everyone. A warm welcome to the Whitehawk board members, staff and players to the Pilot Field today ..... from all at HUFC we wish you a safe journey to our town. Following our 2-0 win over Hythe Town last Saturday today we aim to continue our 100% record at home and extend our 15 game league and league cup unbeaten run ..... however, today we take a rest from the pressures of league points and instead look to progress in the FA Trophy. We fully appreciate how strong an opponent Whitehawk are and despite having beaten them 2-0 just over a month ago we know that a place in the next round is going to be a real challenge to achieve with the Hawks in our way.
we know that a place in the next round is going to be a real challenge to achieve with the Hawks in our way ...
I have pretty mixed feelings towards the FA Trophy .... everyone loves a cup run and the players have only reinforced their appetite for a decent stint in this competition with two excellent performances in the previous two rounds ...... YES, long may it continue. HOWEVER, it can’t be at the expense of our league ambitions.
CHRIS AGUTTER FIRST TEAM MANAGER
Lastly ..... and as always I look forward to seeing and hearing our 12th man rock the Pilot Field ..... WE GO AGAIN .... COYU’s! SPONSOR:

PREVIOUS MEETINGS vs WHITEHAWK FC Our first meeting did not take place until 13th November, 1965 when as Hastings & St. Leonards we met in the second round of the Sussex Senior Cup when we lost 1-2 on the upper pitch; our goal being scored by Ken Beardsell. Our first meeting as Hastings United took place on Tuesday, 12th October, 2010 when we met in the second round of the Isthmian League Cup when we won 5-4 on penalties here following a 3-3 draw after extra time - The Hawks had their revenge the following season when they won a pre-season friendly 2-0. We then met three times during season 2012/13 drawing 2-2 away but losing 0-2 at home in the Ryman Premier Division where we did win 4-3 in a quarter-final League Cup tie. Since then we have met twice in pre-season matches here, the Hawks winning both. Tuesday 17 September 2019

WASPS CONFIRM FIVE SIGNINGS East Grinstead bring in four and keep one ... East Grinstead Town are still looking for their first league win of the season, but they'll be hoping that their five-nil Velocity Trophy win at Chichester City last time out was the start of better things and now manager Matt Longhurst has announced five new signings. First in comes Levi Phillips from Carshalton Athletic, who played in that Chichester match and against Whitstable Town a few days beforehand. The forward has made three appearances for the Robins this season, but has generally been warming the bench at Colston Avenue. Another attacking threat will come from Simon Offei, who has most recently been at Three Bridges and has also turned out for Sutton United, Whyteleafe and Leatherhead, and Ross Barclay has also signed for another month on loan from Sussex neighbours Lewes. Another arrival is the midfielder TJ Bramble, an Antigua and Barbuda international who joins on loan from Gillingham FC. He signed his latest professional contract with the Gills back in May. Finally, forward Steve Smith comes in from Folkestone Invicta. Steve has made four appearances for our league leaders so far this season, but has spent most of the month since he joined the club on the bench. He moved to Invicta from Ramsgate, a club he joined in the summer and where he scored seven goals in only nine appearances, and last season was Whitstable Town's top scorer with eleven goals. Invicta have since confirmed that this is a loan move, not a permanent departure.
LEAGUE NEWS From: Ian Townsend
HILLIANS PART COMPANY WITH WORMULL Burgess Hill Town have released manager Simon Wormull. In a short statement on social media, the club explained: â€œWe can announce that the club has parted company with First Team Head Coach, Simon Wormull. We would like to thank Simon for all of his hard work over the past year and wish him every success in the future.â€? It's just under a year since Wormull took the reins at the Green Elephants Stadium, being appointed after some time as caretaker following the departure of Ian Chapman. He was unable to keep the side in the Premier Division, and they've had a far from positive start to the South East Division campaign, sitting second bottom. His last match in charge turned out to be the 4-3 defeat at Whyteleafe.
HILLIANS APPOINT LOVETT South Park boss heads to the Green Elephants Stadium This morning we announced the departure of South Park boss Jay Lovett, and this afternoon we found out why he had left, as he was unveiled as the new man in charge of Burgess Hill Town. The Hillians have moved swiftly to find a replacement for Simon Wormull, who departed the club in midweek, and have decided that Lovett- who turned around South Park during his twelve months in charge - fits the bill. The new boss will need to hit the ground running, as his new side are in terrible form at the moment and sit second bottom of the South East Division following relegation from the Premier Division at the end of last season. His first match in charge at the Green Elephants Stadium will see East Grinstead Town visit in the Sussex Senior Cup in midweek, before they get back to league action as they welcome Guernsey on Saturday.
GRIFFITHS BACK AT FAVERSHAM Midfielder returns Faversham Town FC have announced that attacking midfielder Luke Griffiths has returned to the club. Luke joined Herne Bay in the summer, and has made nine appearances, scoring one goal - but has spent much of the campaign on the bench. He made twenty-one appearances for Town last season, scoring twice, and was their highest scorer the season before.
HEY, JUDE Rams bring in Bromley midfielder Ramsgate have announced the loan signing of Bromley midfielder Jude Arthurs. The National League leaders signed the former Gillingham youth after his two year scholarship ended in the summer, and he has featured eight times for their Suburban Football League Premier Division side this season. The midfielder spent time at Ramsgate's neighbours Deal Town last season, and previously worked alongside Jason Lillis, the Rams Head of Development, whilst at Priestfield.

GUT FEELING Simon Stoddart A light hearted â€“ and on many occasions, anything but light hearted, look at life here in what is now known as the BetVictor Isthmian League's South Eastern Division. My rants and raves are not connected with the club in any way. FOLLOWING FROM AFAR Very far. Around 8000 miles away in warmer climes out in The Philippines. It's that time of year when SAD kicks in - Seasonal Adjustment Disorder. Some of you know what I mean. Days getting shorter then that â€˜orrible day in late October when the clocks change and its unhappy yukiversary as the evenings start that much earlier. I saw the weather was horrendous for last weekend's game here - well, it just seems so appropriate doesn't it? I detest November and always try to be gone as much of this month as I can. Happily I can follow the U's online and even get to see the goals thanks to Joe Knight's video highlights plus Bob Quinn's excellent match reports. Simon Newstead is a hard act to follow - happily, Bob is making a decent go of taking over from Simon. Not forgetting Pat McCrossan's Twitter updates, of course!
RULES AND REGS THAT MUST BE OBEYED Yea yea yea. There is a place for rules and regulations. We all get that. But the FA rules'n regs apparatchik dealing with FA Trophy matters seems to have been on extended hours this season with at least three expulsions and another side ordered to replay its Trophy tie. Brighouse, Mossley (both Northern Premier Div 1 West) and Willand Rovers (Southern League Div 1 South) have been chucked out, while Bedfont Sports (Bostik South Central) don't seem to have transgressed quite as much as the other three as they were given another chance and were replaying their tie at Grays Athletic later last week. The transgressions related to international clearance and player loan deals and in one case involved a breach of FA Trophy rule 15 (i) (i) and another involved FA Trophy rule 16 ....... Yea. Really. Bad eh? Undoubtedly the FA rules'n regs enforcer is fulltime employed while I suspect whoever looks after the player comings and goings (and plenty of other stuff) at the clubs concerned, is not. I must do some research on this but at a guess, it must be a minefield of very major repercussions for club secretaries to deal with FA Trophy rule 15 (i) (i) etc etc plus all the rules'n reg issues of league football. To illustrate that just take a look at the Thurrock timeline reproduced on page 18 of this GF.
Still the best feigned injury Suarez after sinking his gnashers into an opponent ..... 16
Brighouse must be wondering if someone has it in for them. Expelled from the FA Trophy just months after falling foul of the FA rejig of semi -pro football that saw them win their league's promotion play-offs last season - but not go up.

So much more difficult to find your way round the digital version and some weird and wonderful stuff you come across.

Like I now know where to find out results in Albania. Their top division - splendidly called the Kategoria Superiore - is there for all to see amongst results from all round the globe. Stuff that you never ever see in the traditional newspaper version! POINTS OFF HYTHE AT LAST And not before time. Hadn't beaten them in a league game the previous two seasons so last Saturday's result - not too long after the Trophy win at Reachfields - was most welcome and went a long way towards making up for England's catastrophic Rugby World Cup Final defeat earlier that day. The post Rudkins Pilot Field pitch team deserve as much credit for ensuring the game went ahead as their playing counterparts for winning it. Good to see Davide Rodari scoring again. Get him and Ben Pope firing at the same time plus Lanre and Daniel, then watch out.

Simon Stoddart Always wondered if John Obsworth of the FA went home thinking he'd had a good day at the office after advising Thurrock of the good news ......
TOUGH TIMES ...... Not so good along the A259 at Eastbourne Borough apparently. A financial backer pulled out, an early FA Cup exit and no home games in October have all conspired to give Borough a big headache. And our old sparring partners Chelmsford City are having a fall out with HMRC. The game is as fragile as ever. And not just at semi-pro level either, as the Bury business illustrates. AND AGAIN The season is relatively young yet we have played Three Bridges twice, Haywards Heath twice, Hythe twice and today's FA Trophy tie is our second encounter with Whitehawk who were a very decent looking side in the league game here a few weeks ago. And doubtlessly will be again today.
Great to see players and supporters share the joy after the Trophy tie at AFC Dunstable. 18
WHITEHAWK FC HISTORY Whitehawk are Brighton’s premier non-league club. Founded in 1945, the Hawks have had two periods of unprecedented success as they have risen up the football pyramid from a team playing parks football to be within one game of an FA Cup third round tie at Everton in 2015. Between 1948 and 1952 the Hawks were promoted four times to reach senior county level where they remained until 2010, when three further promotions in four seasons took them to just two leagues below the Football League. The club was founded in 1945 as Whitehawk & Manor Farm Old Boys FC and entered the Brighton Junior Cup league. The club's first match was a 5–3 away win on 13 October 1945 against Hove County Old Boys at Hove Recreation Ground. Whitehawk & MFOB then joined the Brighton, Hove & District Football League, winning four titles and their first major senior trophy, the Sussex Senior Cup by beating Eastbourne Town 1–0 at Woodside Road, Worthing in 1951. The Sussex Senior Cup win completed an unprecedented series of cup wins at junior, intermediate and senior levels in successive seasons, which still stands as a record in nonleague football. Just how far the club had come in such a short time was illustrated by the fact that the reserves won the Sussex Junior Cup in 1952, beating Selsey 3-1, so securing a trophy at the same level that the first team had been playing at, just four years earlier. Sussex County League 1952-2010 The club was admitted to the Sussex County League Division 1 in 1952–53 and finished third in their first season. The Hawks' first county league game was a 4-1 win at Crawley on 31 August 1952. The Hawks were Division 1 runners-up for three successive seasons from 1954–55 onwards, as well as Sussex Senior Cup finalists in 1954, losing 1-0 to Horsham at the Goldstone Ground in front of a crowd of 5626. For the 1954–55 season,
Brighton Corporation allowed the club to move onto a permanently enclosed pitch at the north end of East Brighton Park, on what is now the home pitch, known as the Enclosed Ground. The first match played there was a Sussex County League Division 1 game against Southwick on 1 September 1954, which the Hawks won 6–2. The Hawks won the Sussex RUR Cup for the first time in 1955, beating Eastbourne United 1-0 after extra time at the Goldstone. The club were never out of the top five in the County League Division 1 for the rest of the decade and changed their name to Whitehawk FC for the start of the 1960–61 season. In 1961–62 under manager Billy Thew, Whitehawk won the first of four County League One titles as well as the Sussex Senior Cup, beating Eastbourne United 4–0 at the Goldstone. Billy Ford scored 16 goals in Sussex Senior Cup football that season out of a personal haul of 93 for the season. The publicity generated by a civic reception at the Royal Pavilion led to Brighton Corporation providing a grant of £3,500 for the club to erect a self-build grandstand with standing for 500 spectators. In 1963–64 the Hawks retained the championship by winning their last six matches of the season. After losing the nucleus of the squad to Lewes the team then struggled and under manager Ron Pavey, who later became the Chief Executive of Brighton & Hove Albion, found itself relegated for the first time ever in 1967. They made an immediate return as Division Two champions in 1968. The next nine years saw The Hawks continue to compete in the top division, during which time they lost 2-1 to Horsham at the Goldstone in the Sussex Senior Cup final in 1972. The Hawks were relegated for a second time in 1977. This time they were to spend four seasons in Division Two, having to apply for re-election in 1979 after finishing second from bottom, their lowest ever senior league placing.
The club gained its first club house at the end of the seventies, using what was originally a prefabricated building that had been a temporary bank in Haywards Heath. A perimeter fence was added to the ground in 1981 and under new manager Sammy Donnelly, the Hawks won promotion from Division 2 as champions. In 1983–84 Whitehawk won County League One for the third time, winning their last 18 games of the season. 1986–87 saw the Hawks finish as runners-up to Arundel. In 1988–89, again under Sammy Donnelly, Whitehawk had what was at the time their best run in the FA Cup, going out 2-0 in a fourth qualifying round replay to Bognor Regis Town. The home attendance record of 2,100 at the Enclosed Ground stood for 27 years. Floodlights were erected in 1988 and were first used in a match organised to mark the occasion against then First Division Luton Town on 21 March 1988. The game finished 2-2. The Hawks won the Sussex RUR Cup for the third time in 1990–91, beating Peacehaven & Telscombe in the final 2–1, with youth player Darren Freeman, our future most successful ever manager, heading the winner. 1993–94 was another good season for the club, finishing once again as runners-up, this time to Wick. 2002–03 saw the club under manager and former youth player Ian Chapman once again finish in second place, this time to runaway winners Burgess Hill Town. The club finally achieved the league title success that had previously eluded them, winning County League 1 in 2009–10 under Darren Freeman, to gain promotion to the Isthmian League Division One South for the first time. The Hawks also reached the semi-final of the FA Vase, losing 4-1 on aggregate to Wroxham of the Eastern Counties League Premier Division. Isthmian League 2010-2014 In their first season at the new level Whitehawk were in the title race but eventually had to settle for third place and an end-of-season play-off defeat on penalties to Leatherhead. The Hawks finished as Isthmian League Division One South champions the following season, as well as lifting the Sussex Senior Cup after beating Crawley Down 2–1 at the Amex. The club achieved back to back promotions in the 2012–13 season by winning the Isthmian
League Premier Division at the first attempt to earn a place in the Conference South. National League South 2014-2018 The Hawks struggled in their first season in Conference South. After achieving three promotions in four years, Darren Freeman was sacked in January 2014 and replaced by Steve King. The club then enjoyed their most successful season ever in 2014–15, finishing fourth in Conference South and earning a place in the play-off final against Boreham Wood, which was lost 2-1 after extra time. Whitehawk completed the season with a 5–0 victory over Lewes at the Amex to lift the Sussex Senior Cup. In 2015–16 the Hawks reached the first-round of the FA Cup for the first time winning 5–3 against National League Lincoln City. Lincoln’s next FA Cup defeat the following season came in the sixth round at the Emirates Stadium against Arsenal. In the second round the Hawks drew 1–1 at League Two Dagenham & Redbridge, following a dramatic headed goal in added time by Jordan Rose, which was broadcast live by the BBC during the afternoon sports programme. In front of a record crowd of 2,174 at the Enclosed Ground, the Hawks lost the second-round replay 3-2 after taking the lead through Danny Mills. To force the match into extra time, Whitehawk again equalised dramatically in added time. The whole match was broadcast live by BT Sport. In February 2016, the club parted company with King after picking up just 9 points from the previous 36 available. Under Argentine Pablo Asensio, the Hawks finished the season in style, but lost in the promotion play-offs to Ebbsfleet United. The next two seasons saw frequent managerial changes and over 100 different players used, culminating in the inevitable relegation for only the third time in the club’s history in 2017-18. Not even the return of Steve King could arrest the club’s fortunes and when he departed at the end of last season, he was replaced by the Hawks successful U18 manager Jude Macdonald, with the club looking to build a more stable team with a mix of youth and experience. Unfortunately, the club spent only one season in the Isthmian League Premier Division, suffering relegation on the final day of the 2018-19 season, despite a 4-0 win over Corinthian-Casuals.
WHITEHAWK FC PLAYER PROFILES James Broadbent (Goalkeeper) 26-year-old James was signed from Shoreham on transfer deadline day in 2019 and appeared in the final three games of last season. James began his career as youth team captain and then turned professional at Rushden & Diamonds when they were playing in the National Conference. Since then he has played for Peacehaven & Telscombe, Eastbourne United and Eastbourne Town.
in the Western League Premier Division. After just one game for City he was scouted by the Albion and signed in November 2018. The central defender went on to make 11 appearances in the Premier League South for Albion U18s, as well appearing in the FA Youth Cup, in victories over West Ham and Man Utd. He scored the Hawks first goal of the season on his debut against VCD Athletic.
Charles Banya (Defender)
Ian Robinson (Defender)
The 25-year-old Londoner joined the Hawks in August 2019. A former Fulham youth player, Charles was an unused sub for the Cottagers in a Premier League match against Stoke City in 2012, before signing for Crawley Town, where he scored in a Johnstoneâ€™s Paint Trophy tie against Cambridge United in 2014. Charles is a left-wing back who has also played for Maidstone United, Kingstonian, Harrow Borough and Welling United.
The Brighton born 23-year-old full-back joined the Hawks from Newhaven in August 2019. As a youth player, Ian was a striker at Brighton & Hove Albion before joining Newhaven, where he scored on his first team debut as a 17-year-old. He elder brother Jake, a Hawks legend, is currently at Billericay Town.
Max Blencowe (Defender) Max is the captain of the current Hawks youth side. The Brighton born 17-year-old featured in central defence during pre-season but has yet to make his first team debut. Max spent six years at Brighton & Hove Albion before being released aged 14. He captained the Sussex Schools U16 team to the national championship last season.
Matias Torres (Defender) The 21-year-old Argentinian centre half joined the Hawks in August 2019 after impressing on trial in pre-season. A former youth player at Quilmes, Alvarado and CA Independiente in his home country, Matias is the cousin of Hawks former skipper Sergio Torres and like him comes from Mar del Plata, where both of them grew up. He arrived in England in July, looking to follow in the footsteps of Sergio, in forging a career in this country.
Fintan Walsh (Defender) Marvin Hamilton (Defender) 30-year-old Marvin is in his third spell with the Hawks, having signed from Eastbourne Borough for the start of this season. He scored his only goal for the Hawks against Borough in 2016 and played in our play-off final for the National League against Boreham Wood. The Londoner started his career at Gillingham before appearing in non-league for Dover Athletic, Hemel Hempstead Town, VCD Athletic and Margate. He has also had three spells at Eastbourne Borough, as well as playing in Cyprus and Australia. He was called up to the Sri Lankan national team in May 2019.
Kacper Lopata (Defender) The Polish U19 international joined the Hawks on loan from Brighton & Hove Albion in August 2019. The 18-year-old moved to England in 2011. He was released as a youth player by Yeovil Town, before joining Bristol City after a brief spell at Clevedon Town
Fintan was the first player born this century to play for our first team, at the age of 17, and has now made over 50 appearances. A former skipper of the Hawks U18 double winners and the English Colleges FA team, Fintan has also appeared for Bognor Regis Town and Burgess Hill Town on loan. His first senior goal was the winner at AFC Hornchurch in April. Fintan re-signed for the Hawks in August 2019 after a move to Merstham fell through.
Rob Deda (Midfield) Brighton born 18-year-old Rob made his first team debut in 2017 in the Sussex Senior Cup against Eastbourne Town. He sustained a serious injury that kept him out of football for the first half of last season but made his comeback from the bench against Worthing in January 2019. Rob was a member of the England FA Schools squad in 2018.

WHITEHAWK FC PLAYER PROFILES CONTINUED FROM PAGE 22 Luke Emberson (Midfield) A Brighton born Hawks youth team product, 20-yearold Luke was skipper of the treble winning U18 team. He signed senior terms in July 2017 but missed most of the season with injury. Luke made his full senior debut against Potters Bar Town last season and scored his first goal against Wingate & Finchley. He is currently studying at Loughborough University.
John Paul Kissock (Midfield) JP re-signed for the Hawks in January 2019 from Welling United and was appointed assistant manager in May. The 29-year-old is a former England schoolboy international and spent 12 years of his early career at Everton before being released in 2009. He made 42 appearances for the Hawks in the 2014-15 season, when we reached the play-off final for the National League. He has also played for Hamilton Academical, Luton Town, Macclesfield Town, Ebbsfleet United and Southport.
Henry Muggeridge (Midfield) Our 26-year-old captain joined the Hawks in June 2018 from Crowborough Athletic, where his Father is first-team manager. Henry was a youth player at Fulham and then had a year as a pro at Bristol City before playing for Charlton Athletic, Tonbridge Angels and Lewes. He immediately made his mark with nine assists in his first ten games, as well as scoring a hattrick in the final game of last season against Corinthian-Casuals.
Rhyle Ovenden (Midfield) The Eastbourne born midfielder is in his third spell with the Hawks after joining from Tonbridge Angels. Rhyle was released by Brighton & Hove Albion as a 16-year old, before playing at U18 level for Chesterfield and Watford.
