BBC Sport - Bobby Stokes: The Pompey boy who became Southampton's FA Cup final hero
Bobby Stokes: 1976 FA Cup hero remembered
- From the section Football
Bobby Stokes was a boy who grew up with dreams of playing for Portsmouth, but when his hometown club failed to take him on, he got his break 30 miles along the south coast with Southampton.
On 1 May 1976 he became a Saints legend, scoring the winning goal as the then Second Division club beat Manchester United 1-0 at Wembley to lift the FA Cup for the first time in their history.
On the 40th anniversary of that Wembley win, BBC South Today's Lewis Coombes looks back at Bobby Stokes' life.
