Eastleigh Football club are delighted to announce that Malachi Dotse has signed his first pro deal with the Spitfires!

Dotse makes the step up after coming through our youth system.

The 19-year-old has featured three times for the Spitfires this season.

All three appearances have come on the road, he made his debut against Maidenhead United back in October.

He then got injured whilst playing for the academy and had a period on the sidelines.

Once he had recovered, he went straight back into the squad, coming on as a substitute against Boreham Wood.

He announced his return to the side with a bang and scored his first senior goal in the 89th minute.

The striker then featured again against Altrincham last week before signing his pro deal.

Congratulations, Malachi!
