Hastings United have frozen admission prices for next season

The cost of entry to home first team games during the 2016/17 campaign will remain at £10 for adults and £6 concessions, with under-18s free.

Season tickets will also stay at the same price, but anyone purchasing before the end of May can save 15%.

The adult price is £172 (£146.20 until the end of May), with concessions £104 (£88.40 until the end of May).

United will remain in Ryman Football League Division One South next term after finishing seventh in 2015/16 - two places and two points outside the play-off spots.

In other news, United have confirmed the appointment of two new directors. Barrie West and Peter Sherlock have joined a board which comprises chairman Dave Ormerod, and existing directors Tony Cosens, Dave Nessling and Pat McCrossan.

West has become a familiar face at The Pilot Field since he first got involved with the club’s youth section back in 2007. He joined the matchday team as turnstile manager four years later and has served as chairman of the management committee since it was formed last year.

Sherlock is the managing director and project director of Sherlock Consultancy, and has supported the club as one of its associate sponsors since the start of last season.

The closing date for applications for the vacant first team manager’s job is this Friday and interviews are set to start next week. Ormerod said around 18 people have applied for the role so far - considerably more than the last time a vacancy arose 12 months ago.
