CONGRATULATIONS to Hastings United for avoiding relegation in the penultimate game of the season.

Perhaps next year they could draw it out until the final game, the drama would be tremendous, which might encourage a few of us to attend.

And give the chairman something to smile about. He’s changed tack recently though. Instead of asking for the council to build him a new stadium he’s just hinting that he’d like one.

After all, his is falling apart, and the small crowds don’t provide enough money for the upkeep, and Dartford got a new ground, didn’t they?

In the current climate, a new stadium is hardly a priority. is it Dave? Try filling the one you’ve already got.
