One of the best Saints signings of the summer!

Basingstoke Gazette: Francis Benali Francis Benali

It’s one of the best signings you’ll see this summer – Saints legend Francis Benali will be autographing copies of All the Saints next week.

The book, which hit the shelves late last year and is written by three of the club’s official historians, profiles every single one of the thousand-plus players to have featured for the team.

A signing session featuring Benali will be held in the WestQuay branch of Waterstone’s on Saturday, June 14, the same day England’s World Cup campaign begins and on the eve of Father’s Day.

The former Saints left-back, above, who made 369 appearances for the club, will be in the store from 11am to 12.30pm.

I loved watching those he tackled try to play.

A great character who just seemed to bristle energy and aggression - loved him. And we had Dodds down the other side who was just another Benali but one who had been fed before a game.
