EASTLEIGH have signed proved National League striker Scott Rendell on a one-year deal.

The 32 year-old scored 32 National League goals in 111 appearances, including 86 starts, for Aldershot before being released at the end of the season.

He is a much-needed signing following the departures of Chris Zebrowski and James Constable and Paul McCallum’s move to Solihull Moors.

Rendell, who scored the Shots’ winner against Eastleigh at the Silverlake Stadium last October, spent three years with Aldershot Town after scoring 41 goals in 75 appearances during a prolific spell with Woking from 2013-2016.

During his time with Woking he was the National League’s top scorer for two seasons in a row, before an injury curtailed his time with the Surrey outfit..

He has also scored National League goals for Luton Town (eight in 36 apps), Cambridge United (32 in 57 apps) and Crawley Town (11 in 26).

During his mid-twenties, Rendell played in League Two for Wycombe Wanderers (15 in 43), Torquay United (12 in 35) and Oxford United (three in 18).

Eastleigh manager Ben Strevens said “He’s a player who we have known about for some time now and have monitored. He’s big and physical and is going to be a threat going forward.”

Meanwhile, Eastleigh trio Danny Hollands, Cavaghn Miley and Ben Williamson have all signed new one-year contracts.

Strevens added: “I’m delighted that all of them have decided to stay with us. Danny is our club captain and he will be pivotal to keeping our momentum going.

“Ben and Cav both have real quality and are hungry.”

and don’t just want to improve themselves, but help the team also.”
