Dover 2-0 Eastleigh

Goals from James Alabi and former Spitfire Connor Essam were enough for top of the table Dover to seal a 2-0 win over Eastleigh.

Richard Hill's reaction: "It was a frustrating day - we're up against it at the moment.
"The only players we've got at the moment are the players that are in that dressing room - and it doesn't help when a couple of decisions go against you. 
"At times I thought we played decent football - but we just couldn't open them up and get that opportunity."


Shaw signs for Eastleigh

Eastleigh have signed 22-year-old full-back Frazer Shaw.

Shaw joins the Spitfires after a spell with Dulwich Hamlet and began his career with Arsenal and Sunderland before making his Football League debut for Leyton Orient in 2015.

He played 30 games for Orient before moving on to Accrington and Woking, and then signing for Dulwich in August.

Eastleigh boss Richard Hill said “He’s come through the system at West Ham and you have to be respectful of that.
“He’s another one who should probably have done better and played higher than he has. Whether that’s because he hasn’t had the right break, I don’t know.

“But he was available and he’s not come here asking for shedloads of money or accommodation.

“The opportunity to play for Eastleigh means far more to him than the pound signs in his eyes and that’s refreshing. He’s young and he’s going to be hungry.

“He’s a nice lad and he’s trained with us all week and taken on board what we’re trying to do."

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…

SUBS: Chris Hall (on for Rogers 64), Joe Prince-Wright (on for Lynch 68), Andy Jacob (on for Mitchell 68)

MATCH REPORT BY JAMIE MONTIGUE

It's been a hard few days for the reserve team, coming to terms with the injuries to 16 year old Grant Porter, and defender Nicky Cole. Tuesday night's trip to Harefield ended in disaster when both youngsters sustained broken legs leading to the abandonment of the game, with the scores level (1-1).

So, if there was one way to wish the pair well it was to keep the winning run going with form that has seen Ian and Wayne's side go on a run of five straight victories.

Fielding four Portsmouth trialists, Tom Roberts, Ray Rogers, TJ McClory-Cuthbertson and Tom Mitchell, along with an encouraging welcome back from injury to Chris Collins, who skippered. Luke Douglas a…
