Players make wage donation to Saints Foundation

Southampton Football Club’s first-team players and coaching staff have announced they will be donating their wages from last Friday to Saints Foundation.

The squad has been in at Staplewood Campus throughout the weekend, working on putting things right for the club’s supporters.

As the first step towards that, the group has decided that they wish to donate their wages from the day of the Leicester game to Saints Foundation, in order to help the vital work that is conducted by the charity.
