Loan deal takes Willmott west to Eastleigh

Ebbsfleet United midfielder Robbie Willmott, whose loan move last week to Crawley Town fell through at the last minute, will join up with Eastleigh in a temporary deal.

The 25-year-old, who has played 15 games for the Fleet this season, will stay at the Silverlake Stadium until 2nd January.

Daryl McMahon told FleetOnline, “It says a lot for our squad that Robbie Willmott’s gone up a league, and it would have been two if he’d gone to Crawley, but he’s not been getting into our side lately.

“He’s a fantastic, intelligent player but is still getting to grips a bit with dropping down to this level. So hopefully, this will kick-start him again and he’ll be back in a month or so’s time and we’ll see a rejuvenated Robbie Willmott.”
