Whitehawk manager Richard Hill has made his fifth signing in a week – and it`s another of his former Eastleigh players.

Having snapped up ex-Spitfires Reece Connolly and Ben Strevens, Hill has now brought Whitehawk F.C. logo36-year-old former England C midfielder Glenn Southam to the Enclosed Ground.

Most recently with Basingstoke Town, Southam will be best remembered for making over 200 appearances for Dagenham & Redbridge over a five-year period.

After starting out as a youth with Fulham and Tottenham Hotspur, Southam embarked on his long non-League career with Enfield in 1999.

He joined Bishop`s Stortford in July 1999 and went on to make over 150 appearances and be awarded the player of the year trophy three times before being snapped up by the Daggers in May 2004 for a £20,000 fee – a record for Bishop`s Stortford.

Since leaving the Daggers, Southam had spells of varying length with the likes of Hereford United, Histon, Bishop`s Stortford again, Barnet and Dover Athletic before signing for Eastleigh in the summer of 2012.

He made just under 100 appearances for the Spitfires in all competitions and moved on to have spells with Chelmsford City, Sutton United and Farnborough before signing for Basingstoke last season
