The Academy graduate details the roller-coaster of emotions from joining his boyhood club at the age of eight, to breaking into the first team as a teenager and representing Saints in Europe before injuries took hold.

From that point on it’s been a traumatic journey for the 26-year-old, physically and emotionally, ultimately leading to the premature end of his playing career.

Ralph Hasenhüttl shares his thoughts on the Sport Republic takeover and reflects on Saints’ fruitful festive period in his latest manager’s notes.

Tactics writer Sam Tighe takes a closer look at visitors Brentford, currently two points better off than Saints in 12th place in their first Premier League campaign since winning promotion from the Championship.

The traditional dose of nostalgia from our club historians includes a look back at the memorable 4-0 win over Coventry at St Mary’s in 2012, as Saints prepare to host the Sky Blues once again in the Emirates FA Cup fourth round.

Supporters can pick up tonight’s Brentford programme from one of the numerous sellers outside St Mary’s and inside the stadium concourse, enhancing your matchday experience for just £3.50.
