STATEMENT | Burr Departs Southport

Steve Burr has been relieved of his managerial responsibilities with immediate effect. Southport Football Club issued a press statement today:

“Following a disappointing series of results the Board have taken the above decision in the best interests of Southport Football Club to move forward in a different direction. With 19 players recruited during Steve Burr’s tenure and significant financial backing to strengthen the squad the performances and results recently have not shown signs that confirm the club can get to a position in the League that provides the security as required”

Director of Football Liam Watson will take interim charge of the squad as for the forthcoming fixtures with the aim of ensuring the club retains it’s National League status, Keith Briggs will continue as assistant manager.

The Board would like to wish Steve good luck in the future and thank him for his work and efforts whilst at Southport Football Club.”
