Eastleigh chairman Stewart Donald has said that he will be guided by director of football Richard Hill with regard to next season's management set-up at the Silverlake Stadium.
“The vibe I’ve got from him is that he’d like a go at it, but we have got three candidates that Richard’s happy with, one especially who he thinks can do a very good job," said Donald.
“In reality I think Richard would like a year at it – and he probably deserves that.
“If he decides to do it, I’ve got confidence that, with the right structure around him, we could be successful.
“He has a history of spending my money very well.”
Eastleigh chairman will be "guided" by Hill over manager appointment
EASTLEIGH chairman Stewart Donald says he will be guided by director of football Richard Hill about the management set-up for next season. With National League survival finally secured, the Spitfires hierarchy are in discussions about the best direction to take for 2017/18.
Eastleigh lost 2-0 at Solihull Moors in their final away game of a turbulent season.
Richard Hill's side ensured that they would stay in the division with a win against Bromley on Monday. This afternoon it was the hosts' turn to stave off relegation as Solihull Moors netted two first off goals to see off the Spitfires.
Eastleigh FC are absolutely delighted to confirm that we have agreed to sign Damian Scannell from Dagenham & Redbridge FC, subject to a satisfactory medical and completion of the necessary paperwork.
Many of our supporters will remember Damian from his previous time here at the Silverlake - when he was a real favourite with us all. Our thanks should go to Bridle, as their generous Sponsorship has allowed us to sign this gifted player.
We hope to have Damo available for our game at home to Thurrock on Saturday (ko 3.00pm)
