Eastleigh have completed their sixth summer signing ahead of the 2016/17 season.
Latest recruit, Connor Essam, has joined the Spitfires on a one-year deal.
Having most recently been under contract with Leyton Orient, the 23-year-old central defender had also featured for fellow National League side Dover Athletic on loan last season.
Eastleigh chairman Stewart Donald said: “We’re delighted to add Connor to the team. He is an experienced, young defender who comes to us with great pedigree.
“We’ve once again added quality to the strength and depth of our squad and the competition for places is definitely exciting!”
