Max Stryjek has rejoined Eastleigh on a free transfer following the expiry of his contract at Sunderland.
Stryjek came through the youth ranks at Polonia Warsaw before his move to Sunderland in 2013. In 2015, Stryjek moved to Boston United on loan from Sunderland and made 12 appearances for the Pilgrims. The former Poland Under-19 international then went on loan to Accrington Stanley making three appearances.
The shot-stopper made 13 Vanarama National League Season appearances for Eastleigh after the departure of Graham Stack early on in the 2018/19 campaign. In his time in the colours of the Spitfires, Stryjek tasted defeat twice in 13 appearances, keeping five clean sheets along the way.
On his debut against Dagenham and Redbridge, Stryjek saved a penalty which helped Eastleigh gain all three points.
Stryjek said: “I’m really happy to join Eastleigh and I’m really excited to start a new adventure. I’m looking forward to the new season as it will be a new challenge and hopefully we will get promoted, that should be how it goes.”
Boss Ben Strevens said: “I’m delighted to bring Max back to the club on a permanent basis. I had two keepers in my mind who I wanted to sign, and Max was one of them. He’s a brilliant keeper as he showed here on loan in the early part of last season with a number of really good performances. Now this is a chance for him to get his head down and concentrate on his football.”
