Southampton Vintage 1958-63

EnglandThis first of three Southampton Vintage posts features images of some of the club’s top players from the late 50s and early 60s.

Southampton had tried in vain for many years to gain a first promotion to the top flight of the English League, but as we join them in 1958 they’re languishing down in Division 3 South. The goals of Derek Reeves fired them back into Division 2 in 1960 and as a second tier club Southampton would come within 90 minutes of Wembley in 1963. Their FA Cup dreams were ended that year in a packed semi-final at Villa Park by Manchester United.
