Todd and Essam react to Northampton win

Manager Chris Todd shared his post-match reaction to the 4-1 win over Northampton.
“It was a very positive performance. Regardless of the result, I was happy with the way we played, how we approached the game, the winning mentality,” said Todd. “All pre-season we’ve been scoring. We’ve got goals throughout the team now. Everyone’s chipping in, whether they’re starting or coming on, it looks very lively. “Mikael Mandron is a player, without a doubt, and I’m sure he’ll hit the ground running and be a handful for any Conference defender. Wilson’s looking ever so lively. He knows where the net is and keeps scoring goals. “It’s weird, but it really does feel as if the new players have been here two or three seasons. They get on really well and you could see that in the performance today. That was my half-time talk, I told them you’re looking like a proper team.”

Connor Essam's post-match thoughts:

Bringing back the blog!

Personal message from Jamie Montigue:
After a two-season absence, I have decided to revive and bring back the blog!
So it hasn't really gone anywhere, in fact, those of you who know me personally are aware that I was the one to disappear - all the way to Asia to be in China with Johannah, who is now my wife.
As I have embarked on this life-changing move to another continent,  obviously it goes without saying that I couldn't be so close to Eastleigh Football Club anymore.
That said, my passion for football, writing, blogging, journalism and love for the Spitfires is still strong and I want to continue the work that I started back in 2006 and get back in to it again.
I want to start writing articles again as and when I can. My plan for the site is to keep it as up to date as possible and for it to be a companion and an extra to the official website -
I would really like the Eastleigh supporters to get on board with this. You can be a great help to me …
