Tony Fitzpatrick is a legend in the eyes of many Saints fans.
He first shot to stardom in the
Fergie era of the 1970's, becoming the youngest captain in the clubs history at just 17years old.
He was part of
the team dubbed Fergies Furies that won the First Division in 1976-77.
After over 150 matches in the stripes he left
for Bristol City in 1979, playing against Saints in the Anglo Scottish Cup final in 1980.
He returned to Love Street
in 1981 and went on to play more official league matches than any previous player with 351, and most official competitive
matches with 458 games.
Both of these records have since been taken by Hugh Murray.
Fitzy is the only man
to manage the club on two seperate occasions between 1989 + 1991 and 1996 + 1998.
He was one of the first players inducted
into the Saints hall of fame.
At the start of 2016 he returned to the club as CEO.
