Southampton’s new number one is our programme cover star this week as Alex McCarthy takes centre stage for Saturday’s visit of Leicester City to St Mary’s.

Last season’s Player of the Year opens up about the unique life of a goalkeeper, his long wait for his Saints Premier League debut and how he seized his chance so spectacularly when it came.

Elsewhere, our extended history section includes the story of Ivan Golac’s arrival at The Dell in 1978 and how the Yugoslavian captured the hearts of the Saints faithful.

There are eight pages of quizzes and games to entertain supporters young and old, as we test your knowledge of the club you love. Just don’t forget a pen to fill in the answers!

Talented youth prospect Jake Vokins tackles our 20 quick-fire questions, while you can find out more about the club’s coaching philosophy as we dig a little deeper inside Staplewood.
