This Easter Monday 22nd April 2019 we travel away to Hastings United for our final away game of the regular league season, kick off at 3pm.

Having now secured our place in the playoffs, we now look to our next goal of finishing in our highest possible position of 3rd place, to gain a home advantage in the playoff semi final where we would take on the 4th placed side in the one legged tie.

We currently sit in 4th place, just two points behind our next opponents who would we leapfrog if we were to beat them this upcoming bank holiday.

Not much else separates the two teams, we have a slightly better goal difference of +33, compared to their +31. Though Hastings’ recent form is better than ours as they sit second in the form guide with 5 wins and 1 draw in their last 6 games, whilst we’re 6th in the same table with 3 wins, 1 draw and 2 losses in the same period.

Hastings came away as 3-0 winners on Saturday with a comfortable win over Sittingbourne, prior to that they could only manage a 1-1 draw at home to Hythe Town.

Several noticeable ex Nuts and Bolts players should be in the match day squad for Hastings on Monday, including Lanre Azeez, Jahmal Howlett-Mundle, and Daniel Ajakaiye.

It’s set for a warm bank holiday Monday with an estimated 200+ Ashford supporters making their way down to East Sussex, and it’s the annual last away game of the season with fans being encouraged to take part in some kind of fancy dress. This time around we believe lots of United fans will be taking part in the ‘Go Tropical for Hastings’ campaign, with many wearing Beach/Hawaiian shirts!

For supporters who are getting the train on Monday: Bus Routes 21 and 21A from Stand A at Hastings Rail Station will take you to the ground.

For those supporters who are making their own way down to the ground via car, the address is below:
