Eastleigh have announced the signing of midfielder Jack Payne on loan from fellow National League side Ebbsfleet United.
First-team manager Andy Hessenthaler has dipped in to the loan market following an injury crisis. With nine senior players unavailable through injury and sickness, Payne has been drafted in to bolster the squad.
The versatile midfield player can play across the middle and drop in to defence if called upon. Payne has started two games this season and most recently featured in Ebbsfleet’s 1-0 victory against Hartlepool United.
His loan will expire on 6th October 2018 (inclusive) and he will wear the number 25 shirt.
Assistant manager Ben Strevens has also been registered with the league and has been handed the number 24 shirt.
