Southampton Football Club is an English professional football club based in Southampton, Hampshire. The club was formed in St. Mary's in 1885 as St. Mary's Y.M.A., and after being renamed Southampton St. Mary's they played their first competitive match in a national tournament in October 1891, when they entered the First Qualifying Round of the 1891–92 FA Cup. The club began playing at The Dell in 1898, and moved to St. Mary's Stadium in 2001. Since playing their first competitive match, over 1,000 players have made a competitive first team appearance for the club, of whom 183 have made at least 100 appearances, as listed below.

Southampton's record appearance-maker is Terry Paine, who played over 800 times for the club between 1956 and 1974. Mick Channon is the club's top goalscorer, with 228 goals in his 15 years with Southampton. Eight other players have made over 400 appearances for the club. Other than Channon, only Matthew Le Tissier has scored more than 200 goals for the club.

List of players[edit]

Appearances and goals are for first team competitive appearances only, including substitute appearances.

League matches are those played in the Southern League (from 1894–95 to 1919–20), Football League (from 1920–21 to 1991–92 and from 2005–06 to 2011–12) and the Premier League (from 1992–93 to 2004–05 and since 2012–13).

The total columns include the League matches as above, plus matches in the following other tournaments:

Wartime matches are regarded as unofficial and are thus excluded, as are matches from the abandoned 1939–40 season.

Players are sorted primarily by the number of total appearances, followed by the year in which they were first contracted to the club.
