Savile Rogue Competition Winner Announced!

Thanks to everyone that entered the Savile Rogue competition, the response was brilliant!

The correct answer to the question “Saints wore red & white hooped socks in the 6-3 demolition of Manchester United in the 1996/97 season. Who scored Saints 6th goal?” was of course Gary Neville.

I know this is a bone of contention with Saints fans, as many believe it to have been Egil Ostenstad’s hat trick goal, so I did accept that as an answer as well.

I am delighted to announce that the winner was Chris Morris, and he will soon be receiving a pair of these luxury chunky knit Savile Rogue socks in Saints colours!

But don’t worry…..

…..we are all winners here, and Savile Rogue have rewarded you all for your interest with a special georgeweahscousin.com discount code. Just use the promotional code “COUSIN” at checkout to receive 10% discount at their online store. This code is valid until the 30th November 2012.

Ex-Saint Mark Aims For The Wright Result On Sunday…

You may or may not have been following my coverage of Nivea For Men’s Great Football Experiment.

The experiment aims to see if you can take a regular Sunday League side (in this case Ivory Fc from the Brentwood League first division in Essex), give them the right coaching, nutrition, physio and facilities and turn them into a successful team. Coached by the likes of Terry Venables, Ray Wilkins and Ray Clemence the Ivory team have already had an impressive start to their league campaign, and the perennial strugglers currently lie top of the table.

This Sunday the Ivory lads get their biggest test though, when they face off against a team of England Legends!

Boasting over two hundred caps between them, the ex-pros will not want to be beaten by a ‘pub-side’ and will be going all out to ensure they don’t get egg on their faces.

Amongst the England legends will be ex-Saints legend Mark Wright, and GWC.com are proud to be his official backer for the match!

The no-nonsense but stylish defender made two hundred and twenty two appearances for Saints between April 1982 and May 1987 having signed from Oxford United and was part of the great Saints team that finished league runners up in the 1983/84 season. Lawrie McMenemy succesfully predicted at the time that he had just signed a future England player and got he his first cap within two years.

Wright would have been a shoe in for the 1986 World Cup squad but unfortunately broke his leg in Saints FA Cup Semi final against Liverpool. Having left Saints for Derby County, he did however make the 1990 squad, scoring his only international goal, a crucial winner against Egypt in the group stages.

Wright went on to play for Liverpool and gain forty five caps for his country before moving into management with Southport, Oxford United, Peterborough and Chester City.

Wright will lineup with his fellow ex-England pro’s at Dagenham & Redbridge’s Victoria Ground this Sunday for a 1400 kick off against the Ivory FC boys. His team mates consist of:- Ian Walker, Luther Blissett, Nigel Winterburn, Viv Anderson, Ray Parlour, Clive Allen, Rob Lee, Alvin Martin, Tony Woodcock and Rob Jones.

As Wrights official backers, Nivea For Men have given the readers of this site a chance to win bundle of their products! If Wright is selected as the England legends Man of the Match on Sunday, anyone who has retweeted this article, or commented on it below could be picked at random to win the prize!

Let’s hope we see some of Mark’s old school, classy defending and he catches the judges eye!
