The matchday programme is back with a night time feel as Southampton welcome Fulham to St Mary’s under the lights in the Premier League.

Shane Long stars as the centrepiece of a black cover, and is the subject of the main feature interview.

The Irishman discusses a range of topics, including life away from football, dealing with criticism and chasing milestones.

The 32-year-old speaks with a wealth of experience in his tenth season as a top-flight player in England, but admits interviews are not his favourite part of the job!

Elsewhere, Oriol Romeu issues a rallying cry ahead of a crucial match, as Saints return to home soil after 18 days away.

David Agbontohoma is the latest youngster to tackle our 20-question Academy feature, while we go back in time with former Fulham loanee Matt Targett to his days as a Staplewood scholar.

David Bull and Duncan Holley remember ex-Saint Bryn Elliott, who recently passed away

Our history section continues to provide a dose of nostalgia and we remember passing Saints from years gone by, with tributes paid to Dean Richards, Peter Osgood and Bryn Elliott.

For younger supporters, there are eight pages of quizzes and games to keep the kids entertained during half time. Just don’t forget a pen to fill in the answers!

There is also the traditional coverage of our opponents, including tactical insight from Bleacher Report’s Sam Tighe, while manager Ralph Hasenhüttl and Saints legend Franny Benali bookend the magazine with their latest thoughts.

Pick up your matchday programme from one of the numerous sellers outside St Mary’s and inside the stadium concourse, with 84 pages of original features up for grabs for just £4.
