Inside your Match Programme: Southampton

Mads for it! From the art of the long throw to facing Ivan Toney on his AFC Wimbledon debut, your #BRESOU Match Programme includes an in-depth interview with Mads Bech

6 May 2022

Now available to purchase online, Saturday’s Match Programme includes an in-depth interview with Mads Bech.


Mads on the art of the long throw:

“I see it as being similar to golf; if you hit it right, with the right technique, it flies. Sometimes I try to throw it hard, but it won’t travel as far. It’s about having a good feeling in your body.”


Facing Ivan Toney on his AFC Wimbledon debut:

“Peterborough were a top team in League One. Before the game, the coaches spoke about Ivan [Toney]: ‘They have the top scorer, he’s a good player, we need to be aware of him.’ Me and Ivan had some tough duels! We had a little fight in the game – elbows, tackles. With five minutes to go, we ended up standing face-to-face, grabbing each other’s shirts! On Ivan’s first day at Brentford, we just looked at each other and started laughing!”


And the pain of missing last season’s Play-Off games:

“I had to watch Bournemouth away on TV. It was terrible. I was so nervous and I couldn’t do anything about it. Of course, I’d have been nervous if I’d played the game, but in a different kind of way. When you’re sat in front of the TV, or in the stand, you can’t do anything – it’s out of your hands.”
