Matt Tubbs is convinced Havant & Waterlooville can approach their first-ever season in the National League without fear.

Though it will be a huge step into the unknown for the Hawks it won’t be that for the 33 year old striker. Tubbs has played over 200 games at National league level with Salisbury City, Crawley Town, Forest Green Rovers, Eastleigh, Woking and Sutton United.

He scored 49 goals in 65 appearances for Crawley helping them win the title and promotion to the Football League in 2010-2011. That season he was also named in the National League team of the season.

His experience can prove invaluable to his less experienced team-mates.

“It will be very tough in the National League next season,” said Tubbs. “I won it a few years ago with Crawley and ended up top goalscorer.

“The demands are huge, particularly when you are making round trips of 400 miles on a Tuesday night. There will also be some big teams coming to Westleigh Park next season.

“They should be great occasions and we will also enjoy going to some of the bigger stadiums like Wrexham, Chesterfield, Hartlepool and Leyton Orient. It will be brilliant and something we can look forward to.”
