Richard Hill’s Spitfires have announced the signing of Simon Heslop, who joins the club on a one-month loan deal, subject to the completion of league paperwork.

Heslop joins from York City, who he captained to FA Trophy victory against Macclesfield at Wembley Stadium in May this year.

The midfielder played against the Spitfires last season, scoring when York visited The Silverlake in November.

Speaking upon arrival at the club, Heslop spoke of his delight at joining up with the squad on the official club website.

‘I’m itching to get going – it’s only initially a one-month loan, but I’m excited to get started.

‘This league is all about getting a consistent run going, and I’m sure with the squad assembled, we can give it a go.’
