Monday Briefing: October 29th

By SFC Media Mon 29 Oct Club

It's the start of a new week, so let us bring you up to date with the latest from around Southampton Football Club...

Leicester City game postponed

Tuesday’s Carabao Cup visit to Leicester City has been postponed following the tragic events outside King Power Stadium on Saturday night.

A new date for the fourth-round game, as well as ticketing arrangements, will be confirmed in due course.

The thoughts of all of us at Southampton Football Club remain with everyone at Leicester and all those affected by the tragedy.

Free entry for Under-23s on Friday

Radhi Jaïdi's team have enjoyed a fantastic start to their Premier League 2 season, and will be hoping to continue it when they host West Bromwich Albion, at St Mary’s, on Friday night.

Southampton Under-23s coach Radhi Jaïdi

Kick-off is at 7pm GMT and entry is free to all supporters. You can claim your complimentary ticket in advance by clicking here.

Under-23s victorious again

Jaïdi’s side will head into their latest St Mary’s date with confidence high, after they picked up another victory, away to Sunderland, on Sunday afternoon.

Goals from Callum Slattery and Marcus Barnes earned another three points, as Saints moved up to fourth place in Division 2 of Premier League 2.

Check out our highlights from the 2-0 win below...

Under-18s back in action next week

Southampton’s youngsters had no game at the weekend, but will be preparing this week for their trip to Reading Under-18s on Saturday.

Paul Hardyman’s side visit the Royals in the Under-18 Premier League, a few weeks on from having won at Hogwood Park in the Under-18 Premier League Cup.

Saints have been in good form recently, winning three of their past four matches.

Last week for All Saints Day

The home game against Watford, on Saturday 10th November, is our designated All Saints Day tribute game.

The match will see us remember those connected with the club who we have lost over the past 12 months.

We are inviting supporters to send in dedications for our programme. Please send names, photos and brief messages of no more than 30 words to programmesfc@saintsfc.co.uk by midday on Monday 5th November and we will include as many as possible.

Women’s game postponed

Southampton FC Women had been due to face New Milton Town at AFC Totton’s Testwood Stadium on Sunday, but the game was called off.

Illness in the New Milton camp meant they were unable to field a side, meaning the Southern Region Women’s Premier game did not go ahead.

Saints’ women will be back in action next Sunday, as they host Winchester City Flyers in the league, at Totton, at 2pm GMT. Entry is free for Southampton Season Ticket holders.

We want to help more of our supporters tell their stories, so let us know what role the club has played in your life or what lengths you have gone to in order to follow the team. Email us at socialmedia@saintsfc.co.uk.

In case you missed it last week...

We went for a behind-the-scenes look at a day in the life of striker and summer signing Danny Ings. Check out our feature with him here...

We also showed the moment a young Saints fan got a surprise meeting with his hero, Shane Long, at Staplewood...
