TSP116 - The Dell Years
19 years ago this week, Southampton's beloved old football stadium closed its doors for the final time.
Having hosted the last ever competitive match (vs Arsenal on 19th May 2001), and the last EVER match (vs Brighton on 26th May 2001), it saw 103 years of dedicated service come to an end.
To celebrate one of England's famous old football stadiums, TSP116 sees Ben Stanfield (Host), Glen de la Cour (LeagueOneMinus10) and Will Dawe (Saints Archive) joined by Russell Masters, the man behind Historic Southampton.
Among other things, the panel discuss Saints first moving to The Dell (in 1898), the first ever match, stuffing Pompey, boxing bouts, World War 2 attacks, record attendances and, of course, the final competitive goal - scored by the one and only, Matt Le Tissier.
This Pod is simply full of Dell content and memories, as we pay tribute to this massive part of Saints history.
Lastly, thanks to everyone who sent in their own moments and stories for this episode. It was great to be able to share them.
Keep Marching In!
