Saints Get First TV Fixture Changes For The Season
Friday, 5th Jul 2019 11:57
In the first round of games that will be broadcast on TV Saints have only had two fixtures moved and both are at home.
Surprisingly Saints opening home fixture against Liverpool on Saturday August 17th will remain in place, but the second game set for St Mary's against Manchester United on Saturday August 31st sees a change.
Although it will not change date, the game will now kick off at lunchtime 12.30.
The next change comes with the visit of Bournemouth, this has now been moved from Saturday 21st September to Friday 20th with an 8pm kick off.
Although a Friday evening game is disliked by most football supporters, from a Bournemouth perspective this is the most accessible of their fixtures to be moved to this time slot.
This takes the fixture list up to the end of September meaning that Saints will only have these two fixture changes and neither are major in the grand scheme of things.
Saints will not be affected y any changes made for those clubs in the Europa League, non of our fixtures against Man Utd, Arsenal or potentially Wolves in the Europa Group stages up to Xmas clash with us.

Matches of Yesteryear - Crewe v U's 21/4/14 by wessex_exile
Yesterday was Alfie’s 15th birthday, so I was delighted that the random match generator has selected a game that is an important part of our life together following the U’s. I therefore make no apologies about the focus I will place on this game – I hope it brings you as much pleasure as it did me.

Apologies all, it’s been quite a hectic week at work so this one had to wait until today I’m afraid. I’m off to the New Lawn after this, so looking forward to seeing Noah and anyone else when I get there.
