Saints' trip to Hartlepool postponed

SAINTS' trip to Hartlepool in League One this Saturday has been called off, due to the continuing bad weather.

The decision was taken early, with the blessing of the Football League, before Saints and their supporters started making the treacherous 300-plus mile journey to the North East.

Nigel Adkins' side had been due to fly to Newcastle tomorrow, but with Southampton Airport closed this morning, their own travel plans looked set to be thrown into chaos.

As a result, the two sides have agreed to postpone the game to a later date, which will be announced in due course.

A statement from Hartlepool United this morning said: "It had been hoped that things could be cleared in time for the clash with the Saints.

"However, with further snowfall and forecasts predicting temperatures to drop below zero ahead of the weekend, Pools made contact with the Football League this morning to express their concerns.

"With Southampton Airport closed due to the conditions, Saints players and supporters would have faced a 600-mile round trip on the nation's treacherous roads.

"No date has yet been agreed for a re-arrangement."

I think thats a good result for saints!!!
Niggling injuries were building up and players now have a extra week to get fit.
Better Fonte misses a home game instead of an away trip.

And I only live 25 mins away from Hartlepool. Will probably be re-arranged to a midweek game now, but never mind.

It's a worry isn't it. Just realised I'm flying to Portugal on the day of the FA Cup Final. Will be awful to miss a great Saints day out. :-)

No problem! Made one a few years ago that has 30,000 views now! But that was all with reserve team football clips, so I wanted something new. Glad you liked it.
Hope Adam himself sees it too!

The play-off finals are always the last week-end in May The L1 play-off between two of the other sides in this division will be played on Sunday 29th to see who comes up with us.
I'm guessing semis on 10th/11th and 17th/18th

Common sense decision to call it off early for all concerned. Probably learned a lesson from last week when Yeovil travelled up by road on Friday for the cup tie and the game wasn't postponed until Saturday lunchtime by which time the fans had also arrived!

If you can access any of the recent match programmes, most feature previous matches and give information on players and where and what they are doing now, i.e. Peter Wells is a postman in Nottingham! There is a Wikipedia site Google "List of Southampton Players" that may help.

Claus Lundekvann is over here as a football pundit on national TV. His problems were front page news for weeks here but he seems to be enjoying life and been given another chance by the Norwegians.
Every time I go somewhere and say I am English, they always ask what team I support and when Saints are mentioned the conversation is about Claus or LeTiss, then I find out they are Man U and tell them about the 6-3 or the 3-1 when they changed shirts... they seem to forget those games!
Anyway, hope this helps (not just you but all the Saints that remember Saint Claus)
