Bromley game re-arranged

The eagerly awaited top of the table Bromley v Eastleigh Skrill South League fixture that was postponed from last Tuesday has been rearranged for Tuesday 8th April at 7.45pm, the first date available that both Clubs are free from fixtures.

Duo released

Damian Batt has had his contract with Eastleigh Football Club terminated by mutual consent. Damian signed for Eastleigh in September last year from Oxford United but has found his opportunities limited to twelve starts with a further seven appearances from the substitutes bench.
Also departing is Romone Rose who is to find a club nearer his Reading home. Romone was around the squad during the pre-season warm up making three appearances all from the substitutes bench then linked up with the side again when the season started but again his opportunities were highly restricted and Romone made a further ten appearances these were all from the bench not having made the starting eleven since being at the Club. Romone was linked with signing for Boreham Wood. 
We thank both players for their time at the Club and wish them both well for the future.

Fleetwood signs new deal

Eastleigh Football Club are delighted to announce that Stuart Fleetwood has signed an extension to his contract with the Club through until the end of the 2014/15 season.
Fleetwood signed in the last close season and quickly became a favourite with the Eastleigh supporters. Signing the paperwork Fleetwood said: "It really was not a hard decicion to make when the offer was made."
Fleetwood has so far made 26 appearances for The Spitfires rattling home eight goals having made his debut against Aldershot in a pre-season friendly. Arguably the most memorable goal scored so far was following the mazy run in stoppage time at Dover Athletic just before Christmas earning The Spitfires a 2-1 victory.
