Danny Smith - Press Release

Danny Smith It is with regret that Danny Smith has left Eastleigh FC both in his capacity as a player and Football in the Community and Academy Manager.

Danny had two spells with the club as a player with two seasons at Bognor Regis sandwiched inbetween and is now expected to join Southern Premier League newcomers Gosport Borough.

Popular with many supporters, he gave his all whenever he played and Danny proved to be a commited, hard-working and industrious player.

First team manager Ian Baird said: "Danny has been a tremendous player for Eastleigh always giving 100% but I felt the time was right for us to go our separate ways. We wish him well."

Danny also spent six years working as FIC Manager where he was influential in building the current junior and youth structure with numerous sides at different age groups winning their respective leagues and cups.

We wish Danny every success in his future career and he will always be made welcome at Eastleigh FC.

Chester 3-1 Eastleigh

Eastleigh slipped to 13th in the table after a second defeat in as many games. Chester ran out 3-1 winners. Mark Yeates the Spitfires' goalscorer.

Reaction from Andy Hessenthaler: “We said before the game that the work ethic had been tremendous for the last nine or ten games but the problem is that we’ve kept conceding goals and it’s caught up with us now.

“I wasn’t disappointed with the performance last week (a 2-0 home defeat by Boreham Wood) but after today everyone has got to look at themselves.

“We can’t keep conceding goals the way we are.

"It's up to myself and the coaching staff to get that right but, ultimately, it comes down to the players. They've let us down today."

Eastleigh sign Harvey Read

Eastleigh have signed 18-year-old centre back Harvey Read.

The former Southampton and Stoke defender joins the Spitfires after impressing on trial over pre-season.

"He's a good signing based on his age and what he could be. Hopefully we can mould him into the player we'd like him to become."
