Dave Thompson - 106 appearances (including a Wembley appearance), 8 goals.
Neil Grayston - 154 appearances, 4 goals
Dave Thompson and his efforts in vain against York in the 1997 FA Cup tie are the reason I ended up a Southport fan.....

Neil was a great player in the sense he left everything he had on the pitch every week; he wasn't our best player but certainly committed. I remember him scoring a goal at Haig Ave running at least half the length of the pitch for a 1 on 1 and the JCS being delerious as a result!

Remember Eddie Moss and I think the other winger was Eric Jones and as you say all so long ago.

I hope he’s checked travel times on Google Maps before taking the job.

They had a competition on Radio Five Live (IIRC) and people had to phone in with nominations for the player with the biggest arse in football. The winner was Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink.

Dion’s foraging and chasing back creates the opening for Accrington’s second at Charlton who now lead 2-0. Boy do we miss a talisman like him.

Former Port midfielder David Lynch (Clitheroe manager) signs for Marine so he can play against Tottenham in the FA Cup third round. Has been managed by Neil Young before, may play against Mourinho’s team and will then return to his day job after the tie. Strange.

That is a strange one. Marine have certainly got better midfielders than Lynchy

Who is he?
Lynch is the player-manager of Clitheroe, who compete in the same league as Marine — the North-West Division of the Northern Premier League.
The former Alfreton, Southport, Halifax and Altrincham midfielder, who was born in Burnley, took charge of Clitheroe last summer and has since guided his local club to fourth place in the league — two places above Marine.
Why did Marine sign him?
Marine manager Neil Young has been on the look-out for a midfielder since the draw for the third round tie was made five weeks ago.
The task has been challenging, with almost every decent non-League midfielder in the region already cup-tied and league clubs — who would normally offer younger players — reluctant to loan players to a level where the league campaign is currently suspended.
On Friday, the Northern Premier League applied to the FA to render their season null and void. While Marine have played just seven league games, Clitheroe — who were knocked out of the FA Cup by Warrington Rylands in September, have played nine games.
Lynch, who trained with the Marine squad for the first time on Thursday night, was able to sign for Marine after passing a COVID-19 test.
How was the deal brokered?
Young is a friend of Clitheroe’s chairman, Carl Garner, who acted as Young’s chief scout in a previous job at Stockport County.
Will Lynch play against Spurs?
This is dependent on whether all of Marine’s players pass their COVID-19 tests. Young largely has a settled team and a settled midfield. He has coached Lynch before at Altrincham and brokered his move to Halifax when he worked as the West Yorkshire club’s head of recruitment.
