Hill said: “Ross will be registered as a player but don’t forget that Ben Strevens (coach) and Paul Reid (head of recruitment) are also registered players, but it’s not the case that they’re going to play that many games.

“I’m not saying Ross won’t, but I’ve always said that he will be a good goalkeeper coach.

“Forget his age, experience and everything else, I told him when he was here before that he should think about doing his badges and I said it again when he was with me at Whitehawk.

“Until the last few weeks, Ross hadn’t been that interested, but I spoke to him again and told him this would be a nice opportunity for him.

Eastleigh to sign McCallum

Eastleigh have agreed terms with 23-year-old Leyton Orient striker Paul McCallum.

McCallum will join the Spitfires on a two-year deal and link up with the club for the beginning of pre-season next month when his Orient contract expires.

The 6 ft 3" forward started his career at Dulwich Hamlet and made his first team debut for the club at the age of 17 in October 2010.

He played an integral role for the youth team that season as they reached the third round of the FA Youth Cup where they faced Newcastle United having defeated Yeovil Town in the previous round.
