Thomas and Ashford leave, Peter Castle signs on

Eastleigh's everchanging squad takes another twist and turn with both Martin Thomas and Ryan Ashford going their separate ways.

Having spent a number of seasons with the Spitfires including being part of promotion to the Conference South, the versatile never say die attitude of Thomas will be sorely missed along with the talented Ashford who always did his best for the team scoring some memorable free kicks. It is thought that the latter has signed for VT FC.


Meanwhile, with these two outgoings, the club are pleased to welcome Peter Castle, a 19 year old centre half from Staines. Eastleigh's latest addition made his first team debut for Reading at just 16 coming on as a sub in a 3-0 win against Watford.

The 6"1 defender stayed with the Royals until the end of the 2005/2006 season but had loan spells with St. Albans and Rushden & Diamonds in between.

This summer he moved to Staines of the Ryman Premier. Castle's career began with six years at Bournemouth from the age of nine and has since played for both the England and Eire Youth international sides. He broke into the Royals Reserve side when just 15.
