It’s more silverware for another one of our Under 16 sides!

The young Spitfires finished seven points clear of their nearest competitors, despite the fact that they were playing against sides that were two years older than them.

Head of academy Luke Hardy had this to say following the achievement; “Firstly huge credit must go to the manager Daniel Clarke and his assistant Matt Musgrove. They have implemented their style onto the group and created a great team spirit which has shone through this season. A massive well done to the players, parents and volunteers too. What a fantastic achievement winning an Under 18 league as a group of Under 16 players. We have some fantastic talent coming through the academy and this is just more proof, well done to all involved and we look forward to see the players continued development within our scholarship programme”.

Under 16’s Blues manager Daniel Clarke adde; “I am absolutely thrilled to celebrate the incredible achievement of our U16 Eastleigh team on winning the league! This victory is testament to the hard work, dedication and teamwork that every single player has shown throughout the season.

Winning the league is not just testament to our on-field prowess but also to the unity and camaraderie that define our team. We look forward to even greater achievements ahead.”

Well done to all of the lads for this huge achievement!
