Changes at the top of Hastings United

Fans have been reacting to the news of a shake-up in the boardroom at Hastings United.

The club confirmed on its website yesterday that David Nessling, David Ormerod and Tony Cosens have decided to step down as directors of the club, with David Nessling stepping down as Chairman and Tony Cosens also stepping down as Secretary.

The statement said: “The Club would like to put on record the huge amount of respect it has for all three men, who together have put in over a century of service to the Club.

“Everyone thanks them for their service, and they are welcome to the Pilot Field any time.”

downloadThe three men will officially stand down tomorrow (Thursday).

The news of the departures comes less than a week after Hastings United announced that former Eastbourne United AFC Chairman Billy Wood has joined the Hastings’ club as Chief Executive Officer who said at the time that he saw Hastings United as a ‘sleeping giant’.

At the time of Mr Wood’s appointment the club’s website said that Mr Nessling was to continue in the role of Chairman, the statment last week said his focus would be on: “…delivering important elements for the future sustainability of Hastings United including the brand new stadium complex at Tilekiln.”

On the Hastings United Supporters group on facebook Wayne Southby said:  “I think Billy Wood will actually take over and push the club forward. We need a hungry person in charge with different ways to push the club on but I will say thanks to all three and we appreciate what you have done.”

Kev Towner says: “They’ve been the powerhouse behind this club for many years. I wish them well and look forward to the future.”
