Thank you EDOF

Eastleigh Football Club can announce the resignation of Director of Football David Malone, who is standing down with immediate effect.
Dave has been an integral part of the Spitfires since becoming Director of Football in May 2006, but due to personal reasons he cannot continue his valued commitment to the club.

Posting on the EFC fans forum Dave says “I would like to thank everybody associated with Eastleigh Football Club for allowing me the privilege of sharing so many positive experiences over the past 6 years - and I truly wish the Club every future success”.

Dave who was previously a Director at Winchester City, Salisbury City & Bashley FC has been actively involved in every aspect of the Club and instrumental in Eastleigh’s on the pitch progress. Off field he was an influence in attracting Bridle Insurance to the Club. Simply put, without Dave’s hard work and efforts Eastleigh would not be at our present level within the higher echelons of Non League F…

Coulson signs for Barnet for club record fee

Luke Coulson has completed his move to League Two side Barnet for a club record fee for Eastleigh.
The 22-year-old's departure comes just days after Joe Partington left the Silverlake Stadium for Bristol Rovers.
A statement from Eastleigh FC read: "After lengthy negotiations, 22-year-old Luke Coulson has transferred from Eastleigh to League Two Barnet for an undisclosed fee.
"Coulson has been with The Spitfires for less than a year but again Eastleigh Football Club do not want to stand in the way of a players desire to play at a higher level, which Coulson has taken.
"It also allows Eastleigh to net a record transfer fee surpassing the amount received only last weekend for Joe Partington.
"Eastleigh wish Luke well for his future and thank him for his time with us."
Thank you to everyone at @EastleighFC, an amazing club that I was proud to be part of. Looking forward to my new challenge at @BarnetFC. — Luke Coulson (@LukeCoulson8) January 18, 2017

Daily Echo | Richard Hill returns to Eastleigh as director of football and caretaker boss ... and Michael Green's back too!

Eastleigh have turned to former manager Richard Hill to dig them out of a hole - and welcomed fans' favourite Michael Green back to the club.

Hill, who led the Spitfires to the greatest triumph in their history, lifting the 2013/14 Conference South title, has been appointed director of football and placed in short-term charge of the team following the sacking of Martin Allen.

He will be assisted by senior players Craig McAllister and Ben Strevens, plus head of youth Lee Peacock.

Left-back Green, released by Allen a fortnight ago, is back by popular demand and will go straight into the squad for Saturday's trip to Dover Athletic.
