Saints to face Greek giants

Saints to face Greek giants

Saints have now confirmed their home pre-season friendly for the
Ted Bates Trophy will be against Greek side Panathinaikos at St Mary's on Saturday July 29, kick-off 3pm.

Ticket prices will be slashed for the fixture with adults having to pay just £10, teens and seniors £5 and children aged 12 and under £1.

The clash is being played as part of the deal which saw Saints midfielder Mikael Nilsson move to Greece just under a year ago.

Saints shared the inaugural award with Bayern Munich and then retained it by beating Italian outfit Chievo 3-1 and Belgian side Anderlecht 3-2.

The July encounter will give George Burley's side a tough finish to their warm-up campaign which will see them play two games in Sweden before returning to take on Bristol City on July 25 and Cheltenham Town on July 27.

And lets be honest, the only way St Marys will see some good players, or get a crowd nowadays, is by getting a decent team to play there. after all there aint no talent left in the saints squad. Sir Woopert took care of that.
