Potent Matt Tubbs has become Havant & Waterlooville’s new striker after the club and player thrashed out a deal.
The prolific former AFC Wimbledon, Crawley, Salisbury City and Portsmouth striker ended last season back on loan at Eastleigh.
The free agent has signed a two year contract at West Leigh Park and hopes to reward the faith put in him by getting back on the goals trail.
He has been unable to find the net on a regular basis for two season but hopes his move to the Ryman Premier champions can kick start his career.
Manager Lee Bradbury is keen not to stand still next season as the club return to the National League South.
He hopes to be at the right end of the table after a great season which saw the Hawks overhaul Bognor Regis Town on the final day of the season to clinch the title.
Havant weren’t short of goals and adding Tubbs, 32, to their ranks should provide even more firepower.
Bradbury said: “This league is going to provide a big challenge to the club and we’ve got to be ready for it.”
