Eastleigh have signed former Exeter City and Torquay United defender Chris Todd from Forest Green Rovers on an 18-month contract.

He is the third centre-half to arrive at the Silverlake Stadium this week, following in the footsteps of Dean Beckwith and Alex Lacey (loan) from Luton Town.

Spitfires boss Richard Hill commented: “I am delighted that we have been able to persuade Chris to join us. Just like Dean (Beckwith) I have been after Chris for a while and he was in high demand.

“He had a number of options from clubs in the Conference Premier and for him to choose Eastleigh speaks volumes for the club and I am looking forward to working with him.

“I think the signings we have made this week will help make us become a more solid unit and I am sure the opposition will have to work far harder against us than they have had to in recent weeks.

“Chris is a great lad and a superb character that has come here with a lot of ambition and I am sure he will prove a popular figure with the fans.”
