Hill Pleased With Eastham Capture

Hill Pleased With Eastham Capture

Keith Hill has spoken about capturing Ashley Eastham and he's delighted to be able to add the player to our ranks.

Speaking to the Official Site Hill explained that he believed Eastham would be a fantastic addition to the team as he has good experience at 22 years of age and the right mentality for what Hill wants to achieve at the club.

'Having spoken to him we realised his ambition, and his approach to the game reminds me character wise of Craig Dawson. He's enthusiastic, he's going to be a disciple and he's going to put his faith and trust in myself and the coaching team to establish himself and to improve him. For someone who is 22 he is very mature in his thoughts about why he has come to the Club and he wants to be successful.'

Hill adds that he plans on adding one more centre half to the team before the season gets under way so we have enough coverage for what we want to achieve this season.
