Hill wants Eastleigh 'to get a bit of pride back'

Richard Hill looks ahead to Eastleigh's game against top of the table side Lincoln City. Hill said: “It’s a tough game for us, but the lads have trained well and we’ve spoken about needing to get a bit of pride back after a disappointing performance last week.

“We’ve got a few tired bodies and niggly injuries and Saturday might come too soon for one or two. But it’s April – you’re meant to have sore bodies.”

Eastleigh boss Richard Hill salutes his Lincoln City counterpart ahead of big Silverlake showdown

ON paper, you wouldn't get many takers for an Eastleigh win over mighty National League leaders Lincoln City at the Silverlake Stadium on Saturday (3pm). But the Imps themselves have shown that anything is possible this season, becoming the first club to fly the non-League flag into the FA Cup quarter-finals in 103 years.

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 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…
