Quotes: Hill: "We didn't deserve to lose to Lincoln"

Quotes from manager Richard Hill and goalkeeper Graham Stack after Eastleigh were unlucky in a narrow defeat against Lincoln City.

Richard Hill:

“I can’t fault the lads today. For long periods we were the better team.

“It’s in games like that that you have to take your chances, but I was pleased with the performance from start to finish. It was much improved from last week - it needed to be.

“How Lincoln play, they do it very well, but we didn’t deserve to lose.

“The build-up to the goal was disappointing. There was a foul on Craig McAllister not given and ten seconds later a very similar foul’s been given on one of their players. Instead of us putting the ball in their box, they’ve put it into ours and it was the only time in the game that we didn’t defend well.”

Graham Stack: 

“We created good chances and were really unlucky.

"From an individual perspective, I was disappointed with how I played last week, but today’s performance was exactly what we needed. The only thing missing was the result.

“Their keeper’s made two fantastic saves second half and I've made a couple of good saves first half. I needed that after Dagenham.”



Eastleigh boss Hill: "We didn't deserve to lose to Lincoln"

EASTLEIGH have come a long way since the dark, depressing days of February. When the SOS call went out to Richard Hill to come back and rescue a side in freefall, it was hard to see where the next National League point was coming from.

Quotes: Hill | Solihull Moors | Post-match

Quotes from Richard Hill after Eastleigh's 2-0 defeat away at Solihull Moors:

“The players have done brilliant in respect of keeping us in the league."

“Some of the performances have not been good enough, but I came back with one remit from the chairman and that was to keep this club in the Conference National."

“If my remit had been to play fast-flowing, brilliant football I’d have failed, but we’ve done enough to get the points we needed."

“The wins at Chester and Torquay were massive for us and you have to give the players credit for going to those places and winning."

“But there’s been no in between with us. When we lose, we lose abysmally.”

“We’ve got players whose contracts are up now and others who’ve got another two years and I’d like to stress that this is a situation I’ve inherited, not created."

“We managed our own survival last week but we’ve still got self-pride to play for – and today I didn’t see a lot of that personally."

“We’ve got la…

Scannell set for Eastleigh return

Eastleigh FC are absolutely delighted to confirm that we have agreed to sign Damian Scannell from Dagenham & Redbridge FC, subject to a satisfactory medical and completion of the necessary paperwork.

Many of our supporters will remember Damian from his previous time here at the Silverlake - when he was a real favourite with us all. Our thanks should go to Bridle, as their generous Sponsorship has allowed us to sign this gifted player.

We hope to have Damo available for our game at home to Thurrock on Saturday (ko 3.00pm)

Damian Scannell

Damian first joined Eastleigh in the 2007/2008 season on the 2nd June 2007 from Fisher Athletic.

Scannell is a highly talented and skilful wide player who is comfortable operating on either flank. His attributes include powerful running and trickery.

The Croydon-born winger netted in only his second game as an Eastleigh player in a pre-season friendly against Southampton.

Damian scored a terrific double in a 3-0 rout over Fisher Athletic to get …

Thank you EDOF

A BIG THANK YOU
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…
