Hashtag United are in their words, a one-of-a-kind Football and Esports Club. Founded by TheXvidr Spencer Owen in 2016, the club have taken an innovative approach to the role and operation of a semi professional football club. For the latest in our documentary series we are thankful to them for speaking to us themselves about their development.
Having joined the football pyramid at the tenth level, Hashtag United secured promotion in their first ever season last time out. We join them as the club are about to begin their second ever league season in the ninth tier of English football, but what should Hashtag United do next to progress? We’ve spoken to the clubs players, founder and manager, the people driving the club forward to get their view.
The recent winner of the clubs latest “Hashtag Academy” series is Joshua Osude. The youngster will want to follow in the footsteps of the winner of the clubs first series last summer, Scott Pollock. Scott is now playing for League Two Northampton Town and was voted the clubs Young Player of the Season for 2018/19. Spencer Owen sees youth development as key to Hashtag United developing over the coming seasons, wanting the club to produce “plenty more” players who go on to join professional clubs.
Manager Jay Devereux gives us a unique insight into managing a non-league club with a massive online presence like Hashtag United. Online, fans worldwide follow the club and this gives an added dimension to managing a non-league football team, both in the eyes of the players and the clubs opposition, who often want to rise to the occasion of having cameras present at non-league games that are not usually filmed.
