Player Trials at Eastleigh FC

Official Eastleigh FCEastleigh FC of the Blue Square South will be holding trials for players on Wednesday 6th June 2012. These trials will give players the opportunity to be assessed by our UEFA qualified coaching staff and give them the opportunity of representing Eastleigh FC.

Eastleigh has a pedigree for producing Football League players with Brett Williams (Reading FC) and Aaron Martin (Southampton FC) making the grade after impressing at non-league level. In the 2011/12 season we helped young players secure deals with Will Aimson, 17 and Josh Helm, 16 signing contracts with Hull City and Swindon Town. 
 
These trials will give players the opportunity to showcase their talents and receive constructive feedback from Ian Baird and the coaching team at the club.

What we are looking for

We are looking for players aged 16+ who believe they have what it takes to play in the Football League. You may have been released for a football scheme, or perhaps you’ve never been given that opportunity to shine. If so this event is for you.

Format of the day

The day will be split in to 2 sections. In the morning we will conduct physical and technical tests for all players, this will produce quantitative data so we can compare you against other trialists and players within the club. In the afternoon you will be given the opportunity to shine in 11v11 game, this will be assessed by the 1st team coaching staff as well as our reserve and youth team coaches.

Possible Pathways

Players will have the opportunity to earn paid contracts to play at the club and compete in the Blue Square South (Step 6).

For players who we feel have potential there are opportunities to compete in our reserve squads. Here we have 2 teams competing in the Wyvern Premier and Suburban Premier Leagues. They play teams such as AFC Wimbledon, Woking FC and Sutton United. These are strong squads who have produced players capable of earning scholarships at pro clubs.

For younger players (16+) we offer football education schemes where you can represent the club in the Football Conference (Youth) league and study at the same time.

Chester game postponed

Statement from Eastleigh following postponement of home fixture against Chester:
"Following a pitch inspection from match officials, our game against Chester has been postponed.

"It is with regret this decision has been made so close to kick-off. However, every care had been taken in advance of the game to prevent this from happening.

"A match official was called in on Friday afternoon to view the pitch and, following this inspection, it was deemed safe to play. This information was relayed to today’s referee Mr Savvas Yianni on Friday afternoon.

"Upon arriving at the ground today, the match officials have taken the view that player safety was at risk and decided to postpone the game.

"Ground staff had covered the small affected area overnight to protect the surface from any rainfall which was forecast.

"However, the problem with this area of the pitch is not a surface water issue but a sub-soil drainage problem. Additional drainage has been installed in the a…

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…
