Wednesday’s special edition of the magazine is formed of 68 pages and will be on sale for £3 online and at St Mary’s.
Youngster Hesketh reflects on scoring his first professional goal for Southampton in the previous round of this competition and outlines how it feels to be one of the latest role models for the club’s academy prospects.
Also inside the magazine, is an interview with fellow Saints Academy graduate Harrison Reed, who made his full debut for Southampton in this competition against Sunderland three years ago.
Reed recalls his memories of making his first appearance in the early rounds of this competition in Mauricio Pochettino’s side as well as the lessons he took from a defeat at the Stadium of Light.
Elsewhere in the magazine, we explore the significance of Egil Østenstad’s goal against Sunderland at Roker Park in April 1997.
