Welcome back to the site guys!
We thought we’d give you a tidy little roundup on all things Hashtag United to keep you informed.
Plenty has been happening off of it in the esports world and in the treatment room so with that in mind, let’s get into it…
After being sidelined by an injury towards the end of last season, Peds managed to get back out onto the pitch and make his first league start of the season against Ilford on Saturday.
Despite the fact he’s not quite 100% yet, it’s great to see him back in the lineup and available for selection once again.
It has been an extremely strong start to life at Hashtag for the two new boys – Sam Byles and Jesse Waller-Lassen.
Sam’s work rate has been infectious in a defensive midfield position, where he has worked tirelessly for his new teammates and for Devs.
In Jesse’s case, the attacking midfielder is a human highlights reel and has already scored two goals in a Hashtag shirt.
Long may it continue!
A fairly big update on Stampy here! Marcus has recently joined the boys at the HQ as a full-time editor. He’s been helping out as a freelancer over the past year but now he’s a permanent fixture, and we’re all glad to have him around. He’ll be concentrating a lot more on esports content so make sure you keep an eye out for that this season.
Stampy will still be part of Devs’ playing staff, but if you see any errors in the editing from now on, you know who to blame!
As well as Sam and Jesse, Hashtag recently welcomed another new boy in Tom Leese, who will be joining our esports roster for FIFA 20!
The e-Lions representative got his Hashtag career off to a flying start after packing Cristiano Ronaldo in a 7.5k pack, and in dramatic fashion!

This could change his outlook for the professional season, as he’ll have a significant amount of additional points to build a strong team for the qualifiers.
The draw for the next round of the Essex Senior Cup has been and gone! We’ll be taking on Witham Town FC for the chance to make it to the 4th round.
We earned our passage into the next round with a 2-0 win over Frenford, and we could potentially draw recognised Football League sides such as Colchester and Southend (If we progress further in the competition).
That’s all from us, as our weekly roundup comes to an end.
As always, don’t forget to Hashtag it!
