Eastleigh sign Muggleton

Eastleigh have confirmed the signing of 21-year-old defender Sam Muggleton for a nominal fee from Barnet.

Sam started his career at Leicester City before moving on to East Midlands County League side Holwell Sports following his release. Sam then returned to the professional game with Gillingham. After only two appearances for the Kent side Sam signed for Barnet, where he helped them clinch the National League championship in 2015.

Sam is comfortable in a left back role or on the left hand side of midfield and has also played in the middle of the park. Sam also has the ability of the long throw to add to the sides attacking options.

Sam goes straight into the squad for our Vanarama National League fixture at Sutton United on Saturday.

Woking 2-1 Eastleigh

Eastleigh fell to their first defeat of the season at Woking.

The Spitfires went a goal behind on the stroke of half time against the run of play as Inih Effiong fired past Ross Flitney.

Ben Williamson hit the post and Chris Zebroski had a good chance to score when one-on-one. Defender Callum Howe also came close on his debut with a header that went just over.

After the break, the hosts doubled their advantage in the 53rd minute when Eastleigh's Gavin Hoyte turned the ball into his own net when trying to deal with a dangerous delivery from goalscorer Effiong.

Richard Hill's side were then awarded two penalties in quick succession in a frantic spell of action.

Williamson missed the first and then moments later Ross Stearn was brought down in the box. Ayo Obileye stepped up to score this time and pull a goal back for Eastleigh.

Eastleigh finished the game with ten men as Hoyte pulled up with an injury with all three substitutions having already been made.

Richard Hill's side went a goal behind to a Corey Whitely strike in the 13th minute before a quick-fire brace from Williamson saw Eastleigh leading 2-1 at the break. His equaliser came in the 43rd minute when he combined with Danny Hollands before finishing. He then scored a penalty in first half stoppage time after Ayo Obileye was brought down in the area.

Whitely drew the game level for the visitors when he grabbed his second goal of the afternoon from the penalty spot in the 74th minute.
