Ex-Albion ace comes on board

Former Brighton & Hove Albion captain Adam Hinshelwood has joined the backroom team at Hastings United.

The 27-year-old former defender, who went on to play for Aldershot Town and Wycombe Wanderers before a serious knee injury forced him to retire last season, has taken over as acting assistant manager while Simon Balsdon recovers from illness.

“Adam is keen to get into football management and I am delighted to have him here at The Pilot Field where I am sure his experience as a no nonsense central defender will prove invaluable,” said Hastings manager Jason Hopkinson.
