Hill urges fans to support the team

Richard Hill has urged Eastleigh fans to get behind the team ahead of Monday's home game v Bromley (3pm).


The Spitfires boss said: “The end of the season can’t come quickly enough for Eastleigh Football Club and that’s terrible for a club that’s had the successes we have.

“But whatever differences the fans have got with any of the players – or with me – I’m asking them to come out and support the team.

“The team is the most important thing and everyone, me included, needs to get behind them.

“We’ve done amazing to get the points we have and, if we stay up, which I think we will, I don’t want to go into the last game of the season with just a two or three-point gap.

“I’ve not come back to be the big ‘I am’, I’m in a position where I have to do what I think is right for the club in the short-term. I can’t have any sentiment at the moment.

“We had supporters travel all the way to North Ferriby which I appreciate is not just round the corner.

“If we don’t win, I’m the first person to get frustrated, but at the minute we’ve got to put that frustration to one side and just concentrate on getting behind the team.

“So much has gone on this season that any amount of people could take the blame.

“If people aren't happy with me, so be it, but please trust me and come out and support the team.

“It’s time to put differences to one side and let’s get to the end of the season…then we’ll have the inquest.”

Eastleigh fans urged to put differences to one side and get out and support the team

RICHARD Hill is urging Eastleigh fans to put their opinions to one side and get solidly behind the team at home to Bromley tomorrow (Monday, 3pm). What should have been a no-pressure fixture for the Spitfires has suddenly upped in importance following Good Friday's 2-1 defeat at lowly North Ferriby.

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…
