We are delighted to confirm that Harry Haddocks will be allowed in at Southampton.
Since the initial decision was announced, the two clubs have worked together to find a solution and now our iconic inflatable will make an appearance at Saint Mary’s for our biggest game in the Emirates FA Cup for a generation.
Speaking about the decision, CEO Debbie Cook said: “We are really happy that Southampton have decided to let us take our Harrys. Ever since the 1989 FA Cup, he’s been present at every big game in the club’s history, so it would have been a real shame for him not to be there.
“But both clubs have worked together to ensure Harry will be at St Mary’s and we are also grateful to the Mariners Trust for their help getting him back.
“We want our supporters to have a good and safe time while they’re on the south coast and I now can’t wait to see thousands of you in the away end, waving your Harrys proudly.”
To celebrate Harry Haddock being allowed into St Mary’s, we are reducing the price of our inflatable to just £7. Supporters can purchase online here or via the Club Shop at Blundell Park.
Our supporters can now look forward to playing in the last 16 of the FA Cup for the first time since 1996, safe in the knowledge that Harry Haddock will also be at Southampton to mark the occasion.
