OPPOSITION DUGOUT

 

Lee Bradbury

 

Lee Bradbury enjoyed a professional playing career in England and had notable spells at Portsmouth, Manchester City, Crystal Palace, Oxford United and AFC Bournemouth.

 

Bradbury’s first managerial role came in 2011 at the Vitality Stadium where he guided the Cherries to the League One play-offs.

 

Following a brief spell as a youth coach for Portsmouth, the 46-year-old joined Havant & Waterlooville as manager where he stayed for seven years.

 

Bradbury then went on to manage Eastbourne Borough before spending three seasons at Crawley Town as the assistant head coach.

 

He has been in charge of Eastleigh since February 2022 after replacing Ben Strevens.

 

ONE TO WATCH

 

Sam Smart

 

Sam Smart showed promise to become a footballer from a young age, completing trials at Sheffield Wednesday and Sunderland. 

 

Spending most of his career so far at Basingstoke Town, Smart grew as a player there and scored 20 goals in the 2017/18 season.

 

The 23-year-old has been a threat in the games he has played for Eastleigh this season and will look to add to his goal tally should he feature on Saturday.
