Southampton University beat Southampton Institute 1-0 in a competitive match that was attended by over 750 spectators. The game was played on March 15th – Lisa’s birthday – at the Sparshatt Stadium, Eastleigh FC’s home ground. The weather could have been kinder but it didn’t dampen the spirits of the spectators who got behind their teams to cheer them on. The trophy was presented to the winning captain by none other than ‘Le God’ himself Matthew Le Tissier. He also presented Uni keeper Inigo Sarriegui with a bottle of bubbly for the ‘man of the match’. The game followed earlier games in the day of rugby and hockey in which the University took a clean sweep of all three events. It is hoped that the fixture will take place again next year at Eastleigh.
