Macclesfield Town have completed a deal to sign former Eastleigh forward Scott Wilson.

The striker has signed a one-year deal with the Silkmen after his time with the Hampshire side came to an end.

24-year-old Wilson, who began his career with the Birstol City academy, scored six goals in 12 starts for Eastleigh last season, but was predominantly used as an impact player.

Wilson signed for Eastleigh from Conference South side Weston-super-Mare where he’d scored 24 goals in 42 appearances in 2015/16, named Manager’s Player of the Year.

Prior to that he played for Paulton Rovers, Gloucester City, Bath City, Yate Town & Cinderford Town where Wilson developed a reputation as proven goal scorer.

The Silkmen have also completed the signing of defender Jared Hodgkiss.

The right-back has signed a two-year contract with the Football Club as John Askey shapes his squad for the new season.

A graduate from the West Brom academy, Hodgkiss actually played with Silkmen assistant manager Steve Watson whilst at the Baggies.

Whilst at West Brom, Hodgkiss would have loans at Northmapton and Aberdeen before a switch to Forest Green in October 2009.

Over the next five seasons Hodgkiss would make over 180 appearances for Forest Green before a move to Kidderminster in 2014.

He was a regular for Kidderminster over the next two seasons but was hit with injuries at the start of last term.

After regaining fitness he moved to Torquay in a bid to get regular game time and played an important part in helping the Devon side return to form as they fought to stay in the National League.

30-year-old Hodgkiss returned to Kidderminster and featured in their play-off campaign and will now look to establish himself in John Askey’s newly assembled Silkmen side.
