EASTLEIGH have started their summer business early, signing striker Marvin Williams from Blue Square Bet South rivals Salisbury.

The 24-year-old, who can also play as a wide midfielder, started his career at Millwall and joined Salisbury mid-season from Hemel Hemel Hempstead Town, who were managed at the time by ex-Whites boss Tommy Widdrington.

Williams has signed an initial two-year deal for the Spitfires, whose manager Ian Baird said: “Marvin is a player I’ve been tracking for a while and looked very dangerous when we played Salisbury in February “He’s quick, direct and will add good competition for places.

“He’s still a young lad with bags of potential and hopefully can fulfill that and progress with us.”
