Peacock joins the Spitfires

Eastleigh Football Club would like to welcome experienced striker Lee Peacock to the club for the remainder of the season. The striker, who can also play in midfield, will be immediately available for selection and could be seen gracing the Silverlake for tomorrow’s important match against sixth place Dover Athletic.

Manager Ian Baird comments: “We’re trying to get competition for places and Lee fits the profile we’re looking for. He’s the sort of player we want around the dressing room.”
Peacock has been training with the Spitfires having recently relocated to the Hampshire area and Baird continued: “He feels rejuvenated and wants to give it a go and try and earn a contract here for next season”.

Peacock, was born in Scotland in 1976 and progressed through the youth system at Carlisle United before making his debut for the Blues in 1994. He went on to play 76 times for the club, scoring 11 times. In September 1997 he joined Mansfield for £50,000 before signing for Joe Royle’s Manchester City in October 1999 for £500,000. He went on to have long spells at Bristol City, Sheffield Wednesday, Swindon and Grimsby Town.

He has recently been without a club following his departure from local rivals Havant and Waterlooville in January this year.
