Maybe you'd have a little bit more optimism if you actually turned up and watched the team play.

But it wasn't, it was 4 years ago.
7 of the last 12 seasons were in the higher tier.

Re: Southport 2-3 Altrincham - CUP FEVER - Match Thread

I see one of their fans is making a comparison between Southport and Borehamwood style of play. Having watched Borehamwood yesterday exercise their cheating, thuggery, time wasting and gamesmanship, I almost feel like registering for the Alty site to express my disgust at such an insulting comparis...

No shame in losing this one and though I'd love a good cup run we can do without more league games being postponed.

Re: Club Statement on player abuse

I know there's a tradition of abusing opposition players in football (although I would hope that insults based on racism, sexism, homophobia etc were dying out by now, for god's sake), but who are these idiots who think abusing their own players is going to help anything? Bloody cavemen... although...

Re: Southport 3-2 Spennymoor - Match Thread

And finally. Have you noticed that our performances are improving by the game. Have you noticed the heart, spirit and never give up attitude of the players ?????. These attributes will gain us plenty of points against the teams lower in the league, than the ones we have played (for example the 15 t...

I agree it is not always one way traffic but to infer Trowbridge passed us on the way down is clearly incorrect as they were never above us. Jesus wept!

Re: You're a Southport supporter?!

You may well be right but we were a league team for many years before dropping into the Conference. I don't think the original Trowbridge ever attained league status and so the suggestion that they passed us on the way down seems an unfair comparison particularly given the demographics. The point o...

Re: You're a Southport supporter?!

There isn't much to do in Trowbridge Another town that had a Conference level football club long before we did. But some would have us believe that clubs only pass us on the way up. Not sure that's a fair comparison. Trowbridge Town was only formed in 1998 and joined the Wiltshire County league in ...

Re: Spennymoor 0-0 Southport - I'm coming down with a bad case of Cup Fever - Match Thread

As has been stated before the current kit has a sponsors name where the players name would be so it wouldnt just be a case of sticking names on the current shirts. It would be a full new set of shirts and possibly no room for the sponsor on it. I'd suggest all that might cost more than the £5 x20 th...

I offered to pay for it (on here) but no response from the club. Do you expect the club to chase up such offers made by anonymous people on message boards? If you’re serious about making such a generous offer then you should contact them directly. Thats nonsense. I'm not anonymous. I'm a shareholde...

How many times have we seen this before up and down the country. Owners budgeting based on crowds they've never had, then pulling the plug when the non existent supporters don't turn up.
