Hammond hits century mark

SOUTHAMPTON captain Dean Hammond is set to make his 100th League start for the Championship leaders against Crystal Palace today.

“It’s a great club to be at,” said the 28-year-old. He moved to St Mary’s from Colchester in August, 2009, and reached a century of appearances - including those as a sub - in a 1-0 away defeat against Doncaster Rovers earlier this month.
