Eastleigh have re-signed Sam Matthews from AFC Bournemouth until January.

Matthews has returned on loan after a sustained run in the team at the end of last season.

After completing his eleventh singing of the summer, Eastleigh manager Richard Hill said: “ Sam is a player I like and deserves his chance.

"We've been monitoring Sam’s situation over the Summer and once the chance was there for me to take him, I felt It was an opportunity I couldn’t miss.”

“Again, AFC Bournemouth have been excellent in this whole situation and have stuck to their word.

"They had clubs from this division after Sam and following our discussions in the summer they came to us first.

"They have also made the deal financially possible so it’s only right I give them the credit they deserve.”

Matthews will be in the squad for tonight’s fixture against Sutton United.
