Hill appointed boss with Hessenthaler as assistant

Stewart Donald has revealed that Richard Hill will be the manager of Eastleigh next season with Andy Hessenthaler as his assistant manager.

The Spitfires chairman said: “Richard did ever so well when he was here before and he left too early.

“Since he went, I’ve made more funds available and Richard has always spent money well.

“Hopefully with what’s available to him now, he’ll be able to deliver.

“He seemed the logical choice. He’s a good tactician, he knows how to spot a player and he knows the league.

“Last time he was here, he didn’t have enough of a team around him with experience and Andy Hessenthaler will bring that as his assistant.

"Andy’s our sort of guy.

“He’s hard-working, very knowledgeable at this level and above, he’s a good coach and very well respected.

"He’s got connections with a lot of London-based players and we’re expecting to pick up a few players from those connections.

“Richard and Andy will steady the ship and help us kick on now.”
