But the Saints side will feature players who will be household names to all Southampton supporters young and old, in what will be a keenly contested game with a competitive edge for a trophy that will be played for annually.

It is a true family fun evening with something for the kids with a funfair that will start before the game starts and afterwards it will carry on with ex Saint David Hughes getting on the wheels of steel to spin some tunes (Or whatever way they do things these days)
