Eastleigh 4-4 Bromley

Paul McCallum bagged a hattrick for Eastleigh in a rollercoaster 4-4 draw against Bromley at the Silverlake Stadium.

Richard Hill's reaction: “There’s been times when I’ve been accused of not entertaining people, but today we have – both teams.

“It was one of those crazy, crazy games you get two or three times a season.

“But today you’ve seen two teams that need to defend better. Most definitely my team need to defend better.

“We’ve had to score four goals to draw a game of football at home.

“For the first 25 minutes, we probably played as well as we have all season and there were spells in the second half when we played some decent, flowing football, but we can’t defend like that.

“Brett (Williams) has come on and changed the game, but we were always going to face a bit of an onslaught from them and we didn’t handle it well enough, we really didn’t.

“But then give us a bit of credit for fighting back twice.”

FC Halifax Town 3-3 Eastleigh

Both goalkeepers were sent off in an extraordinary game at FC Halifax Town as Eastleigh were pegged back to a 3-3 draw.

The Spitfires were 2-0 up with just 21 minutes played as Sam Matthews' corner found the back of the net to open the scoring.
Chris Zebroski was on hand to double the lead from another corner that was flicked on by Andrew Boyce.
Scott McManus pulled one back for the hosts from the penalty spot just before half time.
After the break, Halifax were reduced to ten men when goalkeeper Sam Johnson was shown a second yellow card followed by a red.
Just past the hour mark, Simon Heslop scored his first goal for Eastleigh to put the Spitfires 1-3 ahead.
Tom Denton reduced the arrears for FC Halifax Town to bring them back into the game at 2-3 before Ross Flitney was then sent off for Richard Hill's side.
With no keeper on the bench, defender Boyce put on the gloves and made a superb save with his feet to keep the slender lead intact.
The drama wasn't over yet thoug…

Ross Stearn has rejoined Sutton United after leaving Eastleigh by mutual consent.

He leaves the Silverlake having made 31 appearances and scored five goals under three different managers since linking up with the club for an undisclosed fee.

He had signed a two-and-a-half-year contract for the Spitfires and has now rejoined Sutton on a two-year deal.

Saying his farewells to Eastleigh, Stearn admitted: “I am disappointed things didn't work out as first planned, but it wasn’t for want of trying.

“I wish everyone at the club every success and all the best for the future."

He added: "I had a brilliant two years at Sutton and have really missed the dressing room and supporters who were fantastic with me.

"It didn’t work out for me at Eastleigh, but it was a decision I made at the time that was be…
