JOIN us on another nostalgic stroll through time with the help of old pictures - this week to September 1999.

Youngsters from Bitterne Manor Primary School celebrated the end of a year-long millennium study project with the planting of a tree.

Saints players mixed with the community when Francis Benali, Matthew Oakley, Wayne Bridge, Richard Dryden, James Beattie and Jason Dodd presented youngsters with prizes for creating cycle safety posters. Earlier in the month then-Saint Kevin Davies visited Testwood School, Totton, to present a cake to children taking part in a literacy week.

While the events in these pictures were taking place locally - this was happening on a national stage:

September 5

Bobby Robson, the 66-year-old former England manager, was appointed as the new manager of Newcastle United. His predecessor Ruud Gullit was almost 30 years younger.

September 27
