SAINTS: Forster stars in Everton edition


SAINTS is back as the matchday programme celebrates LGBT+ History Month for Southampton’s Premier League clash with Everton at St Mary’s.

In-form striker Armando Broja is the cover star, sporting a rainbow t-shirt to raise awareness for inclusivity, with more information inside about how the club is making a difference in society.

The subject of the latest player feature interview is Fraser Forster, who discusses his Saints resurrection, mental resilience and life away from football, including studying for a degree in his spare time.

Ralph Hasenhüttl reflects on a positive week for Saints in his programme notes, having progressed to the Emirates FA Cup fifth round and taken four points from away games at Tottenham and Manchester United.

Cult hero Franny Benali speaks of his pride in the team’s progress, with three home games to come as Saints look to build more positive momentum.

There is the traditional dose of nostalgia from our club historians, as well as plenty to keep our younger readers entertained as the Big Saints Quiz returns.

Elsewhere, tactics writer Sam Tighe takes a look at how Everton’s approach has changed since Frank Lampard’s arrival as manager, leaving Hasenhüttl to prepare for a very different challenge to the one Saints would have faced under former boss Rafa Benitez.

Supporters can pick up issue 14 of SAINTS from one of the numerous sellers outside St Mary’s and inside the stadium concourse, enhancing your matchday experience for just £3.50.
