SAINTS: Same Game special

By SFC Media Thu 13 Oct Saints vs Burnley

The latest issue of SAINTS matchday magazine for the visit of Burnley focuses on Southampton’s women and girls’ Regional Talent Club and features an in-depth interview with Charlie Austin.

It’s now available to pre-order online, and you can find copies of all this season’s editions of SAINTS on our partner site:

Sunday’s magazine concentrates on the Same Game campaign as female football takes centre stage following the launch of Southampton’s Regional Talent Club earlier this year.

Interviews with Southampton FC's Executive Football Director Les Reed, Girls' Technical Director Lois Fidler, U16 Girls coach Mike Dixon, one of Southampton FC's Performance Analysts Natasha Patel, and the FA's Head of Women's Elite Development, Brent Hills, guide us through the aspirations of the RTC.

Find out the club’s approach and its long-term aims to embed women’s football in Southampton and link it effectively to the work being done at Staplewood with the academy and first team.

Charlie Austin features on the cover of the Same Game special edition of SAINTS.

Elsewhere in the magazine, there’s plenty of content to get your teeth into which concentrates on Sunday’s Premier League game against Burnley.

Former Clarets striker Charlie Austin discusses how his move to Southampton has changed his approach both on and off the pitch, as well as what he does to escape the pressures of playing football at the highest level.

Austin is also the focal point of our FREE poster which appears inside each issue of Premier League games this season.

Find out what to expect from the visitors with our look at the opposition, including tactical insight from Sam Tighe of Bleacher Report, who also focuses on the performance of Oriol Romeu in the team’s last game at Leicester City a fortnight ago.

Both captain José Fonte and first team manager Claude Puel also give their thoughts on Sunday’s game.

What’s more, you can find out the latest news from the academy and Saints Foundation, while there’s behind-the-scenes photos and our new fan feature titled ‘firsts’.

There are more outlets than ever from which to purchase this season’s matchday magazine which retails at £4.
