Basingstoke Gazette: Ex Saints star fixes it for disappointed football fans to see Southampton at St Mary's Ex Saints star fixes it for disappointed football fans to see Southampton at St Mary's

ACCRINGTON Stanley fans can enjoy watching FA Cup football at St Mary's today - thanks for a former Saints star.

Ex-striker James Beattie has bought tickets for Accrington fans to attend Saints' clash with Burnley today after the League Two side's match against Portsmouth was called off.

Beattie, who manages Accrington, put aside the tickets for those who made the long trip south before the game was postponed last night.

Accrington fan Harie Seed, who travelled to Portsmouth with friends, received four tickets from Beattie.

He told his Twitter followers with a photo confirming Beattie's gesture: “Our game vs Pompey off, 4 tickets for the saints match. Very much appreciated!”

Fantastic player for us, have a look on youtube for his goals.
Hope he does well as a manager and works his way up.

Don't think Pond Pee have advanced as far as the 3 rd round do you?
Great gesture by the big man, ensuring that some more Lancastrians will be looking at Saints as their second favourite team-at least.
He's there you know, and continuing to be a Saints legend. This BT works properly.

The Cherry fans are organising a whip round to get the Burton supporters who turned up at the postponed game, money to pay for their return when the match is played, that's the good side of football.
