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.

Southport& District League Open Age Team

Good evening all For a number of years Ian Showering has managed a team within our Junior section and last year finished up in youth football with an under 18s team.

Re: FA YOUTH CUP

I appreciate it is a big leap from Youth to senior first team football but there are a lot of Southport based gems playing at out of town clubs. I'm sure there are, but even Manchester United don't have a monopoly on every player born in Manchester. It just doesn't work like that. Don't forget that...

Re: FA YOUTH CUP

Thanks for the reply Dan. Interesting stuff. You don't consider the JPL a high enough standard for a Southport youth team? Fylde, Rochdale, Tranmere and the likes did last season. Anyway let's hope plenty of local lads pull on the shirt in the future. It's a better standard than local district foot...

Re: FA YOUTH CUP

Sad state of affairs really. There are some really talented boys in the town 15//16/17 who have been at Premier and EFL academies and things haven't quite worked out for one reason or another but they have to go out of town to play a good enough standard and put themselves back in the shoo window. ...

Re: FA YOUTH CUP

Hi all. I'll respond here... As some of you know I've been involved with the Junior section for quite a while now. Long and short of it is that we no longer have an "academy" section running at u17 and u18 and it is the academy that would normally be entered. This however was due to be rep...

Re: Brian Kettle Interview

If I can track him down again maybe so. As Kett alluded to...he went up to Newcastle and I don't think anyone has heard from him since.
