RIP Alex Russell

I am very sad to have to announce that Alex Russell passed away yesterday evening. I got to know Alex very well over the past few years running the former Players Association and nothing gave me more pride than being able to inducted into the hall of fame in 2019. For the Football Club to lose argua...

Re: RIP Billy Bingham

How about the club renames the stand (which was built during his tenure) after him? Yes, I know they will be seeking sponsors for it but the Jack Carr stand is sponsored and surely the club's finest manager should be as prominent as a former president (all due respect to Jack)? I have also made a r...

SUPPORT FOR UKRAINIAN REFUGEES – YOUR HELP NEEDED PLEASE

The scenes hitting our tv screens from Ukraine seem to get worse every day and the impact of the atrocities will be felt for years to come. Over 400,000 refugees have already fled their war-torn homes to neighbouring Poland, home of our retro shirt partners World Retro (a Chablais Sport brand), who ...

Re: Phil Hodgkinson

he wanted to go professional both on and off the field straight away rather than using the wealth of experience already at the club.

Re: Conflict of interests?

Shareholders in any business are interested primarily in profits, I should think!! Southport Football Club is a limited company and therefore it makes no difference to shareholders whether either a profit or a loss is made as the shareholder will neither benefit from it or be liable for it.

Re: News of Former Players - it's back!

I'm a big fan of old kits, hence the retro range available from the FPA. Southport Central started in 1888 with a white shirt and blue shorts...A very nice retro version of which will soon be available. It's interesting to see club colours listed as one of the heritage items listed in the independen...
