Benny is a player I have watched over this past year and has impressed me on each occasion.
He is an attacking full back who offers great energy and technically good ability in the box and we are really pleased he has agreed to join the Hawks.
I would like to personally thank Michael Birmingham in his assistance in helping Benny with this move which I’m sure will help Benny’s development to his dream to become a league player.
Horndean manager Michael Birmingham also liked to make the following statement:
"We at Horndean FC are delighted that Benny Read has this fantastic opportunity to work alongside Paul Doswell and Ian Baird at the Hawks.
"Benny has been an absolute joy to work with the last three seasons, but now the time is right for the lad to move on and test himself against better players and better opposition.
"All of us at Horndean would like to thank Benny for his time at Five Heads and we will be keeping a close eye on his progress which we hope will lead to league football which I know is his dream.
"Best of luck to you Benny and Havant you have got yourself a very exciting player."
