Re: Chorley 2-2 Southport - FA Cup - Match Thread

Second best in the first half and the better team in the 2nd half. A familiar tale. Connor Woods missing a sitter at 1 down seemed to doom us as Chorley added a 2nd but he made up for that with a goal early in the 2nd half to start the fightback. A replay we could do without but we can surely beat C...

Re: FA Cup draw

Sorry but I disagree. Mr Clapham had his failings - who doesn't? But he kept us solvent, Are we insolvent now? recruited good (not all) managers, When you appoint as many as he did you're bound to get a few that are good. kept us well away from the depths of Conference North You're ignoring 5 lower...

No, they are still in the Lancs Amateur League but there's time for them to slump to the district league at the same time we do. :o

Re: Brackley Town 1-0 Southport - Match Thread

You might like to consider why "the vast majority of the town have no interest in the club" It's been that way for the entire existence of the club and is unlikely to change during my lifetime so forgive me if I don't spend too much time mulling it over, but I'd suggest it's because we ha...

Re: FA Cup draw

The rot set in more than 2 years ago, long before Mr Hodgkinson's time. There you go Michael-you actually said it.. The rot set in during a certain previous Chairman's tenure. I presume you are referring to Mr Clapham's tenure. If so, you might care to reflect on Sam Shrouder's recent supportive co...

Stupid question as it's none of your business, but I've done my bit in the past and no doubt will in the future but I am not a commercial business. Neither is "every door in the town" so it would be rather an unproductive exercise given the vast majority of the town have no interest in th...

Re: FA Cup draw

If we already have these qualities why have we been languishing in the lower regions of Conference North for so long? It's not all about money either since other clubs with far fewer facilities and advantages than Southport have overtaken us. So long? They've only been in charge for 2 years since P...

Re: Southport 3 - 3 Gateshead - Match Thread

Our best season in the conference was in 1994/95 where we finished third. We started with a 1-1 draw away at Bromsgrove but did have a very iffy start. Aside from a couple of decent wins, against Gateshead and Kidderminster, we had lost 6 games by the end of September. And I recall the season befor...

Re: Gateshead Match Video

Yes the gate was left open throughout half time and the second half as it was against Stockport a few years back. Steward smiling at fans as they walked through it. It's pretty basic stuff. Just seems like the stewards treat it as an easy afternoon to earn extra cash. In the Gateshead video you can...

Re: FA Cup draw

It amazes me that a town less than half the size of Southport, surrounded by football league clubs, can have a far superior team and attract higher attendances. Chorley aren't the only ones. It would be a boring and predictable sport if results were determined by the size of a town's population. Th...

I've re-read our very brief exchange, where all I did was remind you of one of your own comments, and the only rudeness I can see is the bit where you suggest I'm some sort of stalker.

Not having attended the game I'm intrigued as how we came to be in the lead from the 4th minute to the 94th whilst being totally outplayed. Looking forward to the analysis .
