The Saints 2015-16 Season


This is the jumping off point for Saints match reports for this season. There are now index pages for the Premier League Home and Away matches. That is, a page for home matches and a page for away matches. Nothing whatsoever to do with Australian TV soaps.

In addition there is an index page for the Europa League and there are pages for the other competitions Saints were involved in, namely the League Cup and FACup.


2015-16 News

Saints win the last match of the season

In what was ultimately a party atmosphere, Saints qualified for the Europa League by finishing in 5th place, equal on points with Manchester United, but ahead on goal difference. That could change, with the Manchester United v AFC Bournemouth game abandoned. If ManU win, or draw the rearranged game, then Saints will finish 6th, which is still a Europa League qualifying place.

Heck of a way to end the season.

Europa League
Saints won the Qualifying Round 3 against Vitesse 5-0 on aggregate.

Kelvin's Testamonial
Kelvin is retiring after being central to the club's rise through the divisions. Saints awarded him that rare thing these days, a testimonial which enabled him to have a great evening with current and past colleagues, while raising a lot of money for charity.
