Watch Saints U21s at St Mary's for FREE!

By SFC Media time Fri 20 Sep FDSC

If you missed out on a ticket for tomorrow's Barclays Premier League game at Liverpool, why not come down to St Mary's to support our Under-21 side as they take on Aston Villa?

Admission for the game – which kicks off at 3pm – is completely free, so head to the stadium to give your backing to our future stars in the Barclays U21 Premier League.

Saints go into the game on the back of a hard-fought victory away at Leicester on Monday – a result that U21 Coach Martin Hunter hopes will kick-start the Development Squad's season after a run of frustrating defeats in the early part of the new campaign.

This will be the Under-21s' second game at St Mary's so far this season, having been beaten by Chelsea there in front of 1,761 supporters last month.

And Hunter is keen for the side to build on this week's victory and right the wrongs of that 4-1 loss to the Blues.

"We need to face Villa in a much better frame of mind and continue what we did [on Monday]," said the coach ahead of tomorrow's match against a side who have won one, drawn one and lost one of their opening three games.

"We had a decent crowd at St Mary's but we didn't equip ourselves that evening against Chelsea, so we need to do that on Saturday."

Saints now sit in mid-table five games into the season, and could climb into the upper reaches of the U21 Premier League standings with victory tomorrow.

Midfielder Jake Flannigan echoed his coach's thoughts ahead of the match, saying that he is looking forward to another opportunity to play at St Mary's.

"It's a fantastic stadium," said the 17-year-old. "The pitch is great, and the support we get down there is fantastic – last time we had more than 1,700 there.

"It's a good chance for the lads to get some experience under their belts, and now it's time for us to get a win there.

"We want the same [level of] support from everyone, but this time all of the lads are desperate to get a win at St Mary's. We're definitely going to improve on the Chelsea performance."

Admission for tomorrow's game is free of charge, with supporters asked to enter via Turnstile A of the Itchen Stand from 2pm

Car parking is available in the South Car Park and is priced at £2 per vehicle. Food and drink will be available on the concourse.
