Bobby Stokes FA Cup Final Boots Now In Saints Exhibition !
Friday, 28th Sep 2018 16:37
Perhaps the most famous boot in the history of Southampton Football Club it has never been seen in public since 1976 and you can see it for the final month of the Saints Exhibition at the Sea City Museum.
The most famous goal in the history of Southampton FC is undoubtedly the one scored by Bobby Stokes at Wembley on 1st May 1976 at approximately 4.45pm on that glorious afternoon.
There can be no doubt that this is the greatest goal after all it is the only one in our modern day history to actually win us a trophy.
The boot that scored it has not been seen in many a year, perhaps since the day or so after the FA Cup final itself and over time their whereabouts had been lost.
However they have been in the hands of a private collector and he has now stepped forward and kindly lent them to the Sea City Museum at the Civic Centre in Southampton for the final month of the exhibition on Southampton Football Club
If you haven't been yet there is now even more reason to go and if you have been then there is an excuse to pop back for a second time as perhaps these boots will not be seen in public again for a long long time.
The exhibition must end on 28th October so you will need to get down their fast.

A Dale Fan Abroad - Reflections on Burton Albion 1 Rochdale 2 by DaleAddict
Lying in bed awake on Friday night I was struck by ‘the fear’. By around midnight it had consumed me, and all of my optimism for the season ahead was gone.
A Dale Fan Abroad - Introduction by DaleAddict
My 11-month old son is taking his afternoon nap. My wife is sunning herself on the balcony of our apartment in Salzburg, Austria. It’s the height of summer, but I have only got one thing on my mind; Burton Albion vs Rochdale.
A Hollywood script plays out in the Spotland sun by AtThePeake
It isn’t always easy being a Rochdale supporter. With the majority of the town’s footballing interest being soaked up by local behemoths Manchester City and Manchester United, the club’s attendances rarely break 3,000 home supporters.
Gylfi Not Irreplaceable- But Not Trying To Directly Replace Him Is Smart by BarneyLW
So the dust has finally settled. In what seemed like the most painstaking saga in living memory, Gylfi Sigurdsson is an Everton player. A man the club were silently resigned to eventually losing has moved on and like so often in the past, the club must plan for life without their star player.
Too many things for a title, but stop with the xenophobia accusations! by waynekerr55
I had planned to write this in a different fashion, but Bob Bradley's departure from the club changes a section of this blog. The conclusion was as expected. A seemingly good man and a tryer who simply wasn't up to the job. In short he should never have been given the job.
