Re: Southport 0- 2 Huddersfield

The attendance has not been announced on this occasion, but to me it looked very similar to that at the Blackpool game which was around 1,050. Thanks must go to the Huddersfield fans, probably around 400, who contributed nicely to our finances.

Re: Southport 0- 2 Huddersfield

I also enjoyed the game. Huddersfield are a strong Championship side, better than Blackpool were last week, and we could not be expected to win. We put up a good performance considering that, especially in the second half. We could do with a real striker, but I suppose every team says that! It was g...

https://www.blackpoolfc.co.uk/news/2021/july/pre-season-report-squires-gate-0-blackpool-xi-7/ This was a mixture of U18s and U23s. Presumably they will put out a mixture of U23s and 1st team squad against us. Looking forward to seeing a good, competitive game this afternoon. Hope there is a decent c...

Re: Blackpool friendly ( h )

Blackpool playing Squires Gate from North West Counties League the night before. They will surely play a young team against them, so they will play a strong side against us. Can't expect us to win but it will be interesting to see how our 'new team' plays against a strong team and a pleasure to see ...

We lost our midfield talisman when David Morgan left for Accy. We didn't replace him then and we badly need to now. If we don't..........!

Re: Squad 21/22

I have to agree with Yellowfever on all counts. I hope Newell plays later in the season but he certainly won't be fit for a few months. I presume Liam is looking for real quality in goal, centre back, right back and an aggressive midfielder, together with another forward or winger at least. If we do...

Re: Around the ground

Once again, many thanks to Rob who does a fantastic voluntary job for this club. Keeping the fans informed and involved like this is excellent. Thanks again also to those volunteers who make the place look smart and do a grand job of it. If I was a bit younger and lived a bit nearer I would be there...

Re: £2,000 Fine. . Is it fair?

The whole process of fining clubs for these breaches is obviously ludicrous and despicable. Unfortunately, a vote of 'no confidence' in the League Board won't be successful because many clubs wanted to carry on playing to the end of the season, so the proposal would be defeated. I also very much dou...

Re: James Tedford gone

I join everybody else in wishing James all the very best for the future. He has done a fantastic job for Southport FC and will be a great loss to the Club, but life must go on and a suitable replacement must be found. We are in a very precarious position now and the supporters must back Ian Kyle and...

Re: Season declared null and void

The NL Board has declared our season null and void and have to go to the FA for ratification. The FA have no reason to go against this decision. Therefore there can be NO promotion to the National League, nor relegation from the National League. There can be no mini leagues either. This is a nonsens...

You want a political discussion, have it somewhere else!

Re: Match Thread - Southport V Big Professional Torquay

What has happened to Newell then?

I thought that was a great performance from the whole team against the top non league team in the country currently. Couple of clear missed chances and we could have won. Well played lads! Probably earned around £5k from today, which is definitely needed.

Re: Match Thread Halifax Town v Southport - FA Trophy

What a great win and definitely brings a smile to my face (for a change). Ian will be pleased with the money, despite what he was saying in the interview. Plus a couple of thousand pounds from the streaming too. Who knows what will happen now. I guess it all depends if we get the grant or not. No po...

Re: Favourite kits

While on the subject of kits, when a new one is due do you think there is any chance of getting exactly the same as Wolves kit (the colours and design I mean, with Port logos on obviously!) or at least as near as possible given the probable different manufacturer? I always admire their kit when I se...

Re: Match Thread - Southport V Curzon Ashton

I am afraid that people who say that there is a complete lack of ambition at the Club appear to be right. I don't blame Ian Kyle for this as he has done his level best to keep things on an even keel and I doubt that he has limitless funds. Sadly I am afraid that I do blame Liam Watson. I accept that...
