Redmond: Five things you should know

By SFC Media time Sun 26 Jun Club

We take a look at five facts about Southampton's newest signing, Nathan Redmond.

1. He is the second youngest player in Birmingham City’s history:

Redmond’s appearance in a League Cup clash with Rochdale in August 2010 made him the second youngest player in Blues’ history.

He was just 34 days older than the legendary Trevor Francis was, when he made his first appearance for Birmingham.

2. He supports a number of charitable causes:

Redmond has been a major supporter of a Birmingham-based charity called Help Harry Help Others, which raises money in memory of a young boy called Harry Moseley who died of a brain tumour, aged 11.

Before his death in October 2011, Harry would raise money for research by selling beaded bracelets, and the charity has continued ever since he sadly passed away. Redmond has been a long-time friend of the family and a major supporter of the charity’s work.

He has also given his backing to Saving Lives UK, a charity that raises awareness about testing for HIV, while he has also been involved with well-known football organisation Kick It Out.

3. His first goal for Norwich City came against Southampton:

Redmond is well known to Saints fans for his effort against their team in a Premier League match at Carrow Road, in August 2013.

Redmond’s low strike from 20 yards was his first for Norwich, earning them a 1-0 victory over Mauricio Pochettino’s Saints side.

4. He has played at every England youth level from under-16s to under-21s:

Redmond has enjoyed an impressive and rapid rise through the England youth ranks during his career.

Starting at under-16 level, he has featured at every age group up to under-21s, while he has also competed at not one, but two, European Under-21 Championships.

5. He won the Toulon Tournament with three Saints players this summer:

Redmond was part of the England Under-21 side that lifted the Toulon Tournament trophy in France this summer.

He played alongside James Ward-Prowse, Matt Targett and Jack Stephens during the competition, and now becomes teammates with them at club, as well as international, level.
