Southampton 1-1 Arsenal

A late goal from Olivier Giroud meant it finished 1-1 at St. Mary's. Charlie Austin scored his fourth goal in as many games for Saints.

Reaction:

Charlie Austin: 

“It’s a massive sense of frustration. We started off like a house on fire, with four chances in the first seven minutes, but we needed to get the second goal.

“I feel like I’m going to get chance after chance, so I’m putting myself in the right positions and luckily I’ve put the ball in the net.
"I should’ve scored the one when I went across Cech. As a kid growing up I was always told to go across goal, but he’s made a good save.

“I was delighted with the goal, but it was just instinct really. It got us a great start, but it’s one of them where we should’ve got the three points.

“We’ve got one and in hindsight, if we’d drawn against Man City we’d be [four games] unbeaten.

“We’ll go again – we’ve got big games coming up and a quick turnaround with Leicester at home, so hopefully we can give a good performance again.”

Five reasons why you should support Non-League football

The love of football is a hobby, a passion and for some an obsession bordering on a religion. There are hundreds of millions of fanatical supporters all around the world for what we like to call the ‘beautiful game’. But what of Non-League football?

Here are just a few reasons why choosing to support local and non-league football can be just as rewarding and enjoyable for the average footy fan as opposed to following a side with all the glitz, glamour and money of a top-level side.

1. Affordability An obvious advantage to begin with is the huge savings that can be made in following your local Non-League side.

When you compare the cost of being a fan of a side in Non-League football to a team in the higher echelons of football, the Premier League for example, the difference is huge.

"The Premier League in my eyes is very expensive and overrated,” said Eastleigh season ticket holder Lee Stevens.

MK: Let’s take you back to 2011. The Spitfires were in the Conference South,. Mid-table, a side pushing for the playoffs but not quite making it. Ian Baird was the manager and crowds averaged around 650 people.

Fast forward five years. The club is in the National League pushing for promotion to the Football League with former Brentford manager Martin Allen at the helm of the playing squad.

Attendances are growing year on year and recently the Spitfires took 1500 fans away in the FA Cup third round.

The club has certainly grown under the leadership of Stewart Donald and his team. What a five years it’s been for Eastleigh FC.

Lets now take a look back and cast an eye to the future with the chairman and owner Stewart Donald.

Stewart, five years. It’s flown by.
