Richard Hill’s Spitfires drew their last game of the season at home to Wrexham on Saturday at The Silverlake Stadium.

Wrexham finished 13th and Eastleigh 15th in the National League after The Spitfires coming from behind to earn a point.

After few first-half chances, Wrexham broke the deadlock through Jordan White two minutes after the restart.

But, on 73 minutes, Matt Tubbs flicked in James Constable’s cross to level.

It left the hosts with only one win from their final five games of 2016-17, while Wrexham had the same record to end their campaign, to also finish in the bottom half.

Wrexham boss Dean Keates was unhappy that a foul was not given against Eastleigh in the build-up to Tubbs’ goal.

Andy Hessenthaler has since been named Richard Hill’s number two for the 2017/2018 season.
