Richard Hill

Eastleigh Football Club are delighted to announce Richard Hill as their new first team manager, with immediate effect.

Richard will be introduced to the players and staff tomorrow evening and will take charge of his first match on Saturday against Maidenhead.

Richard is vastly experienced having managed Stevenage Borough and assisted John Gregory at both Wycombe and QPR, Brian Little at Aston Villa and also fulfilled the same roles at Gillingham, Tranmere Rovers and Northampton Town. It is a new era for the football club and we feel that in appointing Richard we have made the right choice. We are confident that he has all the attributes necessary to ensure the football club continues to develop and move forward in the correct manner.

Stewart Donald added ‘I am delighted that we have been able to appoint Richard so quickly. He is exactly the calibre of Manager I wanted. Like all managers that inherit a team, there will be a transitional period while he familiarises himself with the players. I am sure that once this happens the team will go from strength to strength. I know the fans will give him a warm welcome on Saturday as we look to return to winning ways."
