IT’S great to see the Observer promoting local good news stories and we hope we can add to those when the mighty Arsenal come to town on July 19.
We are all very excited that one of the game’s true giants will be gracing the Pilot Field to officially ‘open’ our new floodlights.
We have rarely been able to attract any league club in the recent past and so to get one of the ‘Big Four’ is fantastic.
We don’t know what sort of side Arsenal will bring but understand it will be a mix of reserves and academy players, but let’s face it any senior side they send will be well worth seeing.
It would be great if we could get as many football loving residents of the area down to the game for what promises to be a memorable night. Ticket info is available from the club on 01424 444635 or www.hastingsunitedfootballclub.co.uk
Come on Hastings, get behind your local club when we face the mighty Gunners.
