On this day 15 years ago....

Following a meeting with chairman Charlie Clapham it was mutually agreed that Liam Watson would resign his position with immediate effect as manager of Southport Football Club.
As manager of the Sandgrounders for two and half years he enjoyed tremendous success winning the Nationwide North title in 2004-05 and against the odds as a part time club achieved survival in the virtual full time world of the Nationwide Conference.

Whatever happened to him?....

On this day in 1903.
Councillors lsaac Smith and Edwin Trounson went to London to put the club’s case forward in their second bid for membership of the Second Division of the Football League.
Despite many promises of support some clubs evidently changed their minds for they received only four votes.
Only one other Lancashire Club supported their application.

Tony Field given a free transfer in 1963? We didn't sign him until 1966!

....or is there another Tony Field?

Well we have confirmed today that it is a different Tony field whereas it was once believed to be the same man.
The Anthony Field signed in 62/63 (also a forward) was a chap who made a couple of appearances for Chester before joining us but never made it through to our First team. He made a number of Lancashire combination appearances for the reserves, scoring a few goals, before being released at the end of the season.
Then 4 years later other Tony Field then signed.
