Southampton fans who travelled to Italy to see since taken into Milan


in the Europa League this evening. But it was not to be for Sahnts who


lost 1-0. Our sports reportdr sent us this from the sand save.


Southampton supporters have left the San Siro without the result they


wanted. An excellent displax that ultimately they have been bdaten


here in northern Italy. Frol the off Southampton were on top. Just one


opportunity to take the lead. With Charlie Austin on in the second


period the chances kept comhng. The goal was disallowed for pushing


Then a shattering blow. Are` into Milan attack but a quality finish.


Inter Milan were going to tdn men by the time of this volley str`ight at


the keeper and then they cale so close to the equaliser they surely


deserved. This was the reaction from the Saints camp and the fans. Very


disappointed. Frustrated. Ice as it disappointed. Frustrated. Ice as it

have got and finished busindss with the Italian giants.

The man behind it was said to be a visionary -


yet there's little in his home town to mark John Winchcombe's


Now momentum's building behhnd a campaign to create a statte


of the man who became known as Jack of Newbury.


Jack of Newbury, John Winchcombe, can be seen as a combination of Bill


Gates and Dick Whittington. Bill Gates for his economic role and Dick


Whittingham, someone who represents the ordinary person who can succeed.
