SCHOOL teachers took on a team of former Saints in a game of football in front of their classes.

Ex-Dell players Gordon Watson and David Hughes visited St George Catholic VA College in Leaside Way, Swaythling, to open their new all-weather sports pitch.

After the opening, a squad of school teachers challenged the former Saints players, joined by some of the school’s old boys, to a match.

Hughes, who also once managed Eastleigh, scored from the kick off.

The pitch will be used during PE lessons and also hired out to the local community.
