A Game of Two Halves 2019

By SFC Media time Thu 07 Mar Saints Foundation

More than £13,000 was raised towards the work of Saints Foundation as a result of this year's A Game of Two Halves event, which took place at St Mary's on Wednesday night.

The popular annual event saw Charlie Austin's team of current Southampton players go head-to-head with Matt Le Tissier's Legends squad in a series of challenges in front of a live audience.

Austin was joined by Oriol Romeu, Shane Long and Jack Stephens, with Le Tissier boasting Rickie Lambert, Franny Benali and Ken Monkou on his panel.

More than 250 people attended the event, helping to raise significant funds for the vital work carried out by Saints Foundation in Southampton and the surrounding communities, through ticket sales as well as a raffle, lucky dip and spot the ball game on the night.

The highlight of the night proved to be Long and Monkou going head-to-head in a Sammy Saint drawing challenge, in which Long prevailed, with both pictures being signed by all eight team members and auctioned for an additional £220.

In the overall stakes, Austin and his team won out, as his Superstars edged out the Legends 63-57.
