Eastleigh to meet Reading today

Ian Baird’s Spitfires will face Brian McDermott’s Reading XI at the Silverlake Stadium today  Saturday 9 July in their latest pre-season friendly.

Ex Spitfire Brett Williams will be against his former team as a part of a contract agreement when the striker moved to Reading for a rough sum of £50,000.

Sean Morrison and Marcus Williams are among the names of a very young 24 man squad to face Eastleigh.

The Spitfires will have the usual players such as goalkeeper Gareth Barfoot and last season’s goal machine Jamie Slabber,however they will showcase there trialist that played against Winchester City on Tuesday.

A possible return for Jamie Brown could be on the cards after the attacking midfielder was asked to play against Winchester City and played a good 45 minutes for the Spitfires.

Trialists such as England schoolboy Jack Vallis and former Reading striker Andy White are expected to be on the Spitfires squad.
