Southampton boss Mark Hughes is our cover star when the matchday programme returns with a brand-new look for tomorrow’s Premier League opener against Burnley.

Supporters can get to know the manager on a deeper level, as he offers a rare insight into his life away from football, what shaped his approach to management and why his character transforms on matchday.

Elsewhere, our extended history section includes a tribute to Cliff Huxford from club historian David Bull, while there are eight pages of quizzes and games specifically designed for junior supporters, who have plenty to keep them occupied in the lead up to kick-off and at half time – just don’t forget a pen to fill in the answers!

Other new features include 20 questions with teenage striker Michael Obafemi, as well as the opportunity for supporters to learn more about the team behind the team, as we interview various members of staff who play a key role in the team’s performance behind the scenes.
