Bobby Stokes – the man from Portsmouth who scored Southampton’s most famous goal, is written by Mark Sanderson and out on Pitch Publishing now.
Bobby scored Southampton’s winning goal against Manchester United in the 1976 FA Cup Final. It remains the club’s only major honour in 131 years and counting.
But how did a Portsmouth supporter end up playing for their local rivals?
Should the goal have been allowed to stand?
And having left Southampton in 1977 how did Bobby go from scoring the winner in front of fifty-thousand in New York to the Sussex League in the space of 12 months before dying in 1995 aged 44?
This book answers those questions by telling the story of the man from Portsmouth who scored Southampton’s most famous goal. Buy it now.
