Hastings United 4-1 Ashford United
Hastings United gained a crucial victory in the battle for top spot in their tier six division after overcoming second-placed Ashford United in front of a big crowd at The Pilot Field yesterday. A close game was in the balance until its final stages and Ashford will be cursing a couple of key injuries and some decisions that didn’t go their way. Hastings, meanwhile, stuck to their game plan and got the win.
