Former Players Association

The FPA was created in 2019, as an independent entity to ensure that the club’s history and heritage was properly recognised, specifically the efforts of its former players and staff, after a significant period of upheaval at the club. Supported by the new board of directors, club staff, and a volun...

P.s. for transparency, this user account (SfcFPA) will now only be used for news relating to the work of the FPA, or about former players themselves. I've created a new account which I will use to share my own views and non FPA related stuf...

Re: Connor Heath

Connor Woods was released by Skem United's youth setup. Dylan Vassallo by ourselves. Loads from Accrington and such. Judging a player off their youth career is like trying to guess, perfectly, the day the world will end. We didn't release Vassallo. We spotted him playing for sefton school boys with...

Re: An idea to help the club generate money & publicity

I doubt you would find anybody disagree that if we ever expect to increase our attendance beyond the already dedicated group of supporters then we must market the club. I hesitate to add the words "more effectively" to that previous sentence as I am not undermining the efforts that our ver...

Re: Bradford

I'm just surprised we gave up the opportunity presented by two home games during an international break, with the marketing potential that international breaks present to non league teams. We moved the midweek one by choice to a day that Liverpool are also at home. There must be some evidence somewh...

Re: Liverpool Senior Cup

Is the current 'club' not the same, or descended from the same, legal entity? (maybe I should read your book!) No, completely different. Central was a brand new club. New name, new colours, new kit, new committee, new players, new ground. Every contemporary source calls them a "new organisatio...

1881 and all that

In 2018, after the naming of the "1881 Lounge", I wrote an article in support of the change and to shed some light on the 1881 claim as far as I understood it. ...and despite everything that has been proven since...I still like the name! Here's why. https://www.southportfootballclub.co.uk/...

Southport FC's first ever match took place on this day in 1888. In June 1888 Southport Central had been formed after the captains and secretaries of a large number of local amateur clubs met to discuss the creation of a new professional club.

No, former youth team goalkeeper. Played in the FA Youth Cup in Darren Wildman's squad a couple of years ago. Often warms up with the goalkeepers before games and had been on the bench a few times before.

Re: An idea to help the club generate money & publicity

It appears from the accounts that there had been a sizeable shareholding increase of 10,100 between 2020 and 2021. It may not be mega money, but it's a lot to me! A confirmation statement is published by companies House each year of who the shareholders are and how many shares they have. The confirm...
