Pride

I have at various times over the years felt proud to be part of this clubs fanbase, felt proud of the players and staff (such as James T or Ken) and had huge admiration for our tireless army of volunteers. But before this week I have never felt any sense of pride in the board. They were to be tolera...

Re: Match Thread Halifax Town v Southport - FA Trophy

Excellent victory for port well done. Great way to sign off the season. See you in August Very good win in bad conditions I did not think the match would be on. No reason to stop the season just get on with playing under lockdown rules. May I suggest you listen to Ian's interview yesterday and then...

Re: Carry on football!

Given the up-coming Qatar World Joke Cup, maybe we restart the 2021 season in March. End in December, restart in February finish in November before swing back towards August-May over the following seasons?

Re: Carry on football!

A new audio file from Ian Kyle on the Southport website regarding his thoughts on the whole situation. Worth a listen. https://southportfc.net/update-from-ian-kyle/ I am raging at the attitude from the National League around our Fylde and Darlington matches. Ian and his attitude to our player welfa...

Re: Carry on football!

Looking increasingly likely that the steps below us are going to null and void their seasons. So no relegation from our league. 11 clubs in National League divisions have confirmed positive Covid cases ahead of this weekend and their games postponed. First round of EFL testing 112 positive tests. I...

Re: Darlington off

I suppose that the two sufferers will be out for a while. What makes you say that? Not everyone who has Covid is on a ventilator hanging on for life like the government would have you believe. Even if they are asymptomatic it is 2 weeks of not training so probably another 2 weeks or so to get back ...

We're delighted to announced a number of new members of the Former Players Association 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...

Stagnation? Nothing to do with a former Chairman then? I'm not entirely sure how you blame Liam for what happened prior to him being here again as manager, but then I suspect that Kempster911 blames Liam for the origin of Covid-19 too.... You just don't get it I know, it is almost like my first com...

While we do get rightly frustrated to watch some teams go past us, there are plenty of old rivals who have dwindled away to (next to) nothing.

Re: Match Thread - Marine V Southport

Cracking player, it is a real indicator of how it has been in the past decade, that I doubt in 10-15 years time we will be looking back fondly on players from 2010's in the way we look back at the 90's and 00's....
