It's the first time Le Tissier has played in an official game since 2002, when he retired after playing his entire career for the Saints.
Le Tissier made over 500 appearances in all competitions for the south-coast club, and won eight England caps.
Many fans feel he should have represented his country more times, having watched his incredible skills, passing and long-range screamers in the 1990s.
He is currently juggling turning out for Guernsey with being a pundit and co-commentator for Sky Sports.
