EASTLEIGH have recruited a helping Hand for tomorrow’s FA Trophy task against Hayes & Yeading.

Manager Richard Hill, who rates Hayes the best team in the Blue Square Bet South, has signed experienced midfielder Jamie Hand on a month’s loan from Mansfield Town.

With Mark Hughes ruled out with a sore leg, the likelihood is that 28-year-old Hand will come straight into the starting line-up for the third qualifying round tie at the Silverlake Stadium.
