He played a big part in the FA Cup final win against Manchester United. Although Southampton were a lower division side, they were considerably more experienced than Manchester United’s youthful team. Southampton won 1–0, with Channon playing a part in the winning goal scored late in the game by Bobby Stokes. It was his first domestic honour in the game.

A creative attacking midfielder, with exceptional technical skills, Le Tissier is the second-highest ever scorer for Southampton behind Mick Channon and was voted PFA Young Player of the Year in 1990.
