Hastings FA Cup clash kick-off brought forward
1:48pm Monday 19th November 2012 in Sport
Hastings United’s second-round FA Cup clash at Harrogate Town is now a 1pm kick-off because the game has been selected by ITV as one of the featured matches for extended highlights.
Kick-off has been brought forward two hours because the floodlights at Harrogate's Wetherby Road home do not meet ITV’s requirements and the game must be played in daylight.
The change means the supporters’ coaches will now leave Hastings at 5am for the trip to Yorkshire on December 1.
A club statement said: “Whilst being inconvenient, it is obviously a wonderful opportunity for both clubs, and we hope supporters will understand and welcome the chance to get back home in time to see the highlights!”
