Of the appointment, Steve commented on the official club website:

‘Following three successful seasons with AFC Bournemouth Women, I have felt for a while that I needed a change. I am therefore very pleased to have agreed to work with Eastleigh, starting next week with our trials for the 2019/ 2020 season. I’d like to thank Mike and Gazz who, following our recent meetings and discussions, made my move across a very easy decision and it is a great time to join Eastleigh FC with some exciting developments planned. I look forward to working with them, the players and Club and can’t wait to get going.’
