Eastleigh manager Ben Strevens paid tribute to former boss Andy Hessenthaler’s part in the club reaching the Vanarama National League play-offs.

Acknowledging Dover boss Hessenthaler’s key contribution to the Eastleigh success story, Strevens said: “Getting to the play-offs is the culmination of the hard work we’ve done from the start of pre-season.

“Today we took care of our own business and I was pretty sure Hess would help us out (at Ebbsfleet).

“I spoke to Hess this morning and he was in the garden having a drink and picking his team with his assistant Nicky Southall and I said: ‘I hope you’re not on holiday already!’

“Hess helped build this Eastleigh team that’s reached the play-offs. He’s been brilliant for us and for Dover.”
