Ian Turner : Manager Lawrie McMenemy's joint-first signing from his former club Grimsby Town, he was part of a two-player 20000 transfer in March 1974. Born in Middlesbrough, Turner was originally with Huddersfield Town and, while with Grimsby, had a spell on loan to Walsall.
Peter Rodrigues : Will surely pinch himself to make sure it's true as he leads Southampton into action today-because this time last year he was given a free transfer by relegated Sheff Wed. Aged 32, he has 40 Welsh caps, the first in 1965. Began with Cardiff and played in Leicester City's 1969 F.A Cup final side beaten 1-0 by Man City. 
David Peach : Claims he has the 'best left foot in Britain' after using it to score Saints' second semi-final goal against Crystal Palace-his first penalty for the club. Cost 50000 from Fourth Division Gillingham in January 1974. Born Bedford.
Nick Holmes : As an attacking midfiled player had scored ten goals up to the semi-final in the best season of his young career. Aged 21, he has also reached England under 23 squad ranking this season. Born Southampton.
Mel Blyth : Rugged 6ft. 1in. centre back who began with Scunthorpe United and played 250 first-team games for Crystal Palace before moving to Southampton in a 60000 transfer in September 1974. Still lives in South London. Born Norwich.
Jim Steele : At 80000 cost what was then Southampton's record fee when signed from Dundee in January 1972. Has repaid it with powerful displays in the No.6 shirt alongside Blyth. Born Edinburgh.
