Eastleigh Football Club can confirm that Lyle Simpson has joined Southern League Division One South club, Bashley FC, on loan.

The young striker heads back to Bashley for the 2022/23 campaign, after enjoying a successful spell there on dual-registration from the club’s Elite Development Squad last season.

At the Glen Mex Stadium, Lyle played a part in helping the club earn promotion from the Wessex League up to step four of the non-league pyramid as they finished as runners up in 2021/22.

Eastleigh Manager, Lee Bradbury, commented on the move:

“This will be a good challenge for Lyle and a chance for him to play regularly again this season.

“He’s done well in pre-season and this move will be an opportunity for him to step up a level whilst staying in familiar surroundings at Bashley”

We wish Lyle the best of luck during his time with Bashley FC.
