Last week the Echo published a selection of behind-the-scenes image taken from around the time the last competitive match was played at the Dell.

Today the focus is shifted to photographs revealing the inside operations behind the very last match at the Dell.

Taken on May 27, 2001, the day Saints triumphed 1-0 over Brighton, the images show the chefs to the coaches and the police to the press.

New Forest Post:

Match days were, and still are, a complicated symphony in which each and every part of the orchestra must play their role with impeccable skill and timing.

It was a mammoth task, but the people in these pictures were some of the many that made sure the day was unforgettable for thousands of Saints fans.
