Rob Atkinson has signed for Eastleigh after leaving Fulham.

A left footed central defender, Atkinson signed for Fulham from Basingstoke Town.

Last season he represented Braintree on loan in the Vanarama National League, making fifteen appearances.

Atkinson played under Eastleigh Assistant manager Jason Bristow when Bristow was previously the First Team Manager at Basingstoke Town.

Atkinson played the full 90 minutes at the Silverlake last season as Braintree frustrated the Spitfires during the second half of the home side’s 2-1 win.
