Eastleigh manager Richard Hill believes he has "the best job in non-league football".

The 52-year-old has been in charge of the National League side since September 2012 and guided them to the Conference play-offs last season.

"I still say I've got the best job in non-league football," Hill told BBC Radio Solent.

"You take Tranmere and Grimsby out of the equation and this is the best club in non-league football in my opinion."

Eastleigh have made six signings this summer, including ex-QPR winger Lee Cook and former Luton man Andy Drury.

"That's how far we've risen in the last three years, so we've done something right," added Hill. "I think it's the best squad in my time here, in terms of calibre and experience of player.

"If it's the best squad of players in my time here, it's got to be the best squad of players that's ever been assembled at Eastleigh."
