Eastleigh sign Muggleton

Eastleigh have confirmed the signing of 21-year-old defender Sam Muggleton for a nominal fee from Barnet.

Sam started his career at Leicester City before moving on to East Midlands County League side Holwell Sports following his release. Sam then returned to the professional game with Gillingham. After only two appearances for the Kent side Sam signed for Barnet, where he helped them clinch the National League championship in 2015.

Sam is comfortable in a left back role or on the left hand side of midfield and has also played in the middle of the park. Sam also has the ability of the long throw to add to the sides attacking options.

Sam goes straight into the squad for our Vanarama National League fixture at Sutton United on Saturday.

Eastleigh 4-4 Bromley

Paul McCallum bagged a hattrick for Eastleigh in a rollercoaster 4-4 draw against Bromley at the Silverlake Stadium.

Richard Hill's reaction: “There’s been times when I’ve been accused of not entertaining people, but today we have – both teams.

“It was one of those crazy, crazy games you get two or three times a season.

“But today you’ve seen two teams that need to defend better. Most definitely my team need to defend better.

“We’ve had to score four goals to draw a game of football at home.

“For the first 25 minutes, we probably played as well as we have all season and there were spells in the second half when we played some decent, flowing football, but we can’t defend like that.

“Brett (Williams) has come on and changed the game, but we were always going to face a bit of an onslaught from them and we didn’t handle it well enough, we really didn’t.

“But then give us a bit of credit for fighting back twice.”
EASTLEIGH: Graham Stack, Gavin Hoyte, Sam Wood (Sam Matthews, 82), Danny Holla…

Stearn rejoins Sutton

Ross Stearn has rejoined Sutton United after leaving Eastleigh by mutual consent.

He leaves the Silverlake having made 31 appearances and scored five goals under three different managers since linking up with the club for an undisclosed fee.

He had signed a two-and-a-half-year contract for the Spitfires and has now rejoined Sutton on a two-year deal.

Saying his farewells to Eastleigh, Stearn admitted: “I am disappointed things didn't work out as first planned, but it wasn’t for want of trying.

“I wish everyone at the club every success and all the best for the future."

He added: "I had a brilliant two years at Sutton and have really missed the dressing room and supporters who were fantastic with me.

"I’ve always kept a look-out for our results and the boys have done an amazing job. It really feels like I’m coming home and to put on the amber shirt again is so exciting.

"It didn’t work out for me at Eastleigh, but it was a decision I made at the time that was be…

Eastleigh 3-2 Gateshead

A winning goal from Ben Strevens deep into second half stoppage time saw the Spitfires claim all three points with a 3-2 win over Gateshead at the Silverlake Stadium.

Richard Hill's side had been 2-0 up thanks to a fourth-minute goal from Ben Williamson and a second half strike from James Constable.
Gateshead fought back to draw level with goals from Jordan Preston and Theo Vassell late in the game, but Strevens was in the right place at the right time to profit from good play by Mark Yeates to seal victory for Eastleigh.
Eastleigh: Ross Flitney, Ayo Obileye, Michael Green, Danny Hollands, Ryan Cresswell, Callum Howe, Gary McSheffrey (Mark Yeates, 73), Sam Wood, Paul McCallum (Craig McAllister, 66), Ben Williamson (Ben Strevens, 83), James Constable. Subs: (not used) Chris Zebroski, Cavaghn Miley.

Heslop joins on loan

Simon Heslop, 30, has joined the club on a one-month loan deal from York City. He captained York to FA Trophy victory against Macclesfield at Wembley Stadium in May this year.

The midfielder played against the Spitfires last season, scoring when York visited The Silverlake in November.

Speaking upon arrival at the club, Heslop spoke of his delight at joining up with the squad.

“I’m itching to get going – it’s only initially a one-month loan, but I’m excited to get started.

“This league is all about getting a consistent run going, and I’m sure with the squad assembled, we can give it a go.”

Speaking about the signing of Heslop, Richard Hill said: “I did say I wouldn’t put a sticking plaster on it, but the reason I’ve been convinced is because we’ve found a midfielder who wants to prove himself at a higher level and he’s coming for the right reasons.

"It’s a deal that's beneficial to both the club and player and it’s financially right as well.

“Also, it’s been forced in the respect th…
