Ben Wright signs permanent deal with Spitfires

Eastleigh FC is delighted to announce the signing of Ben Wright from Salisbury City pending the finalisation of paperwork with the FA.

Wright began his career at Basingstoke Town before moving to Hampton & Richmond where his prolific scoring attracted the attention on then Fulham manager Roy Hodgson where he passed a medical and looked set to sign. However, Hodgson backed out of the transfer at the last minute, and he instead joined League One Peterborough in 2009.

Since then he has gone on to play for Grimsby, Crawley Town, Braintree Town and Salisbury City from where he was loaned to the Spitfires and scored an impressive 11 goals in 15 games to help us clinch the Skill South championship last season.

We welcome Ben back to the Silverlake Stadium and wish him a successful time at the club.

Glen Southam released

Eastleigh Football Club are extremely disappointed to report that their club captain Glen Southam has been released from his contract with immediate effect.

Glen has been an inspirational skipper and a major factor in our promotion to the Conference Premier. He has conducted himself on and off the field in an exemplary manner and is rightly very highly regarded by everyone at the club.

Unfortunately personal circumstance has dictated that Glen needs to find another club potentially but we are hopeful that will be with another Conference Premier team so that the fans will get a chance to see him in action at the Silverlake again this season and show their full appreciation.

Club chairman Stewart Donald commented “I am very close to Glen, who has become not just the clubs captain but also a good friend. 

"He leaves the club with my best wishes for the future and thanks for everything he has contributed. He has played a huge part in our recent success and I will always be extremely grateful for the way he lead by example and set the right standards. 

"He gave everything when he put on the Eastleigh Jersey and was determined to deliver the title last year for us. I am glad we managed that achievement whilst Glen was at the club.”
