It’s a Christmas special of SAINTS on Saturday as the matchday programme sports a festive feel for the visit of West Ham.

In-form striker Danny Ings is the cover star as Southampton chase a third straight home win at St Mary’s.

Inside, James Ward-Prowse is the subject of a 10-page feature interview, discussing a wide range of topics including how he deals with defeat, his thought process standing over a free-kick and how Christmas Day will play out at home.

Manager Ralph Hasenhüttl, a key figure in Ward-Prowse’s impressive 2019, pens his matchday thoughts, while Cédric gives the view from the dressing room ahead of Saints’ return to home soil.


Elsewhere, tactics writer Sam Tighe tries to work out the enigmatic form of the Hammers, our historians provide a welcome dose of nostalgia and our junior section offers a host of quizzes and games for younger readers.

The away end includes comprehensive coverage of our opponents, while Saints legend Franny Benali explains how the introduction of Shane Long has taken Ings’s game to new heights. 

Supporters can pick up issue 10 of SAINTS from one of the numerous sellers outside St Mary’s and inside the stadium concourse on matchday, priced at £4, while back issues from the 2019/20 campaign are available online.
