Club Description

Originally known as St Mary’s Young Men’s Association F.C, Southampton F.C only came to be once it was listed as a limited company in 1896.

Southampton were hugely successful in the Southern League championship in the late 1890’s and early 1900’s, winning 6 titles in 7 years; also finding time to move to the Dell in 1898, their home for 103 years before moving to current stadium St Mary’s.

The Saints joined the Football League in 1921 and rose to Division Two quickly, only to stay there for a 31 year stretch which included a couple of FA Cup final defeats. 

It was only in 1966 that they reached the top flight of English football under the guidance of Ted Bates. Thanks to the goal scoring prowess of Martin Chivers and Ron Davies, they stayed in the top division for eight seasons, relegated the very season after Bates resigned.

Southampton’s proudest moment came in 1976 when they beat favourites Manchester United in the FA Cup Final; still the Saints’ only major trophy to date. 

Southampton were founding members of the Premier League, consistently finding themselves in the bottom half of the table mainly due to constant managerial changes.  The south coast team has always been a source of goal-scoring machines however, with Alan Shearer, Kevin Phillips, James Beattie and local hero Matt Le Tissier all whacking them in.

Relegated in 2005 and dropping down to League One after a nasty case of administration, Southampton have been resurgent since being bought out by Markus Liebherr who installed Italian banker Nicola Cortese as chairman.

Nigel Adkins has overseen the back to back promotions under this new regime and will be hoping £7 million pound man Jay Rodriguez can justify his price tag this season.
