Eastleigh Football Club is delighted to announce a double signing ahead of their first pre-season friendly against Reading tomorrow.
The Spitfires have signed Alex Wynter and Joe Jones who are both 24 years-old.
Wynter joins from Maidstone United whilst Jones arrives at The Silverlake from Woking.
Both players have put pen to paper on a one year deal, and today joined in training for the first time.
First Team Manager Andy Hessenthaler was delighted with securing the services of the two youngsters:
“My remit over the summer was to bring the average age of the squad down and that is exactly what I have managed to achieve. The players we are signing, all have bright futures and hopefully that lies with Eastleigh Football Club”
“The Chairman and the other directors have been excellent this week in allowing me to make further signings. I am fully aware of how tight the budget is to bring in any further signings and they have allowed me to do so, I am really pleased to get these over the line.”
Alex Wynter after signing had this to say: “I am really pleased to be on board. After speaking to the gaffer and hearing his plans for the club, I couldn’t say no. This is an exciting challenge and something I want to be part of. I can’t wait to get going!”
Versatile midfielder and defender Jones said: “Being able to focus purely on my football and getting in to a full-time football environment was important for me. Speaking to the gaffer it was clear that Eastleigh would be the perfect place for me to progress my football. Having trained with the lads for the first time, you can tell how ambitious everyone is. I can’t wait for the season to start now and show the fans what I can bring to the team.”
Wynter has been handed the number 15 shirt whilst Jones will take number 22.
Both deals are subject to FA & National League approval.
