Ex-Ipswich Town man Andy Drury signs for Eastleigh

AMBITIOUS Eastleigh have secured another experienced signing with the addition of former Ipswich and Luton Town midfielder Andy Drury.

The 31-year-old returned to the Hatters last summer for £100,000 from Crawley Town and scored twice in 35 appearances last term. He left Kenilworth Road by mutual consent just 12 months into his two-year deal.

Drury started out in Non-League with Sittingbourne, Gravesend & Northfleet, Lewes and Stevenage before his first move to Luton.

Two goals in an FA Cup tie against Charlton got clubs twitching and Ipswich Town were first to make a move, signing the midfielder for £150,000. After 62 appearances with the Tractor Boys, he left for Crawley and then re-joined the Hatters.

Drury is the latest midfielder to join the Spitfires after Barnet’s Conference winning winger Lee Cook arrived last last month.

“This has been going on for three weeks and it’s a good signing and addition to the squad,” Eastleigh boss Richard Hill said.
