Recruited after starring in a VAFA representative team against the VFA in June 1985, Eishold debuted as a midfielder in early 1986.

He was lightly used in his first two seasons but made the 1987 Preliminary Final squad. Just when he looked like becoming a regular in 1988 he missed three months with a broken collarbone just as he looked likely to become a regular senior player.

Returning for one game at the end of the year he became a regular 1989 until missing the finals series with a severely sprained ankle. 1990 was his finest year. Despite missing a month with a knee injury suffered in a collision with teammate Steven Clark during Round 1 he played 20 games including two finals. He had more injury trouble in 1991, breaking his thumb in Round 4 and being kept out of the game until Round 14.

Eishold had a delayed start to 1992 after injuring his knee in a practice match against Richmond at Skinner Reserve, Braybrook and played just five games all year.

Originally slated to move to Tasmania and coach Hobart in 1993 the move fell through and Eishold followed his old coach, John Northey to Richmond. He played just two games at the start of the year and three at the end before leaving the Tigers.

Eishold moved to Echuca after leaving the Tigers. He won the Goulburn League award for best player in 1995 and coached his side to a premiership in 1997. Played for Bundoora in 1999.
