UPDATE | Sponsor A Player

After a full set of sponsorships for the first-team squad for the 2020/21 season, you can now have your name associated with the players’ change kits.

Again we have individual sponsorships available for the whole Southport first-team squad and staff.

Whether you’re a supporter or business, this is a great opportunity to get involved and be closely associated with your favourite Port player for the next season.

Each sponsorship for the change kit is £150+VAT. Your sponsorship will see you receive the shirt of your player at the end of the 2020/21 season and feature in the matchday programme throughout the campaign.

We still also have John McCarthy and Dan Gabrielson (physio) for main sponsorship at £250+VAT.

To sponsor a player, e-mail secretary James Tedford at james@southportfc.net or telephone 01704533422.

JOIN | Southport Juniors

Southport Juniors are now recruiting players for next season.

The junior section are looking for full teams in the U13s, U15s and U17s age groups.

The juniors are fully affiliated with the club, including playing in the Southport colours and  kits for coaches. Players can also get free access to first-team games.

Please note we are currently looking for full teams rather than individual players.

If you are interested, please contact Secretary James Tedford at james@southportfc.net

Simply put, all help is appreciated in tracking any player down on the listThe majority of gaps remaining are now the players who made under 20 appearances for the club and in some cases made one sub appearance in 1986. Impossible to trace? Maybe, but, with the likes of Twitter and Facebook you never know, I might get lucky. I have had a few players come forward who didn’t think I would want to hear from them as they made a single appearance. Far from it these are the ones I need most.

So. If you know of anyone on the list, get them to contact me either by mail to rob@southportfc.net or call 077900-41514 or if anyone fancies assisting with a bit of sleuthing on Twitter, Facebook or any other social media please have a go.

It’s a big task but I’m sure we can still reduce the gaps a bit more?

Thank you.

Rob Urwin

 

 

 

UPDATE | Walkabout Wednesday

Latest film of the pitch, the work on the 1881 toilets, the pop up shop and an update from Ian Kyle.

Please continue to submit any questions to rob@southportfc.net ready for the next update which we are planning to carry out every fortnight or more regular if required.

Despite it being a lovely day we were once again interrupted by the wind. Apologies for some sound issues. We will simply have to do all the interviews indoors!

 

SHOP | Walkabout Wednesday

We will have a pop-up shop inside the ground at Walkabout Wednesday this week selling merchandise, taking pre-orders for the new kit, answering any membership questions and serving cold drinks.

Social distancing will be observed at all times and payments by card are preferred please.

Come along between 12pm and 1pm, get some exercise with a few laps of the pitch and visit the shop.

PRE-ORDER | Replica Shirts

We are now taking pre-orders on the 2020/21 home and change shirt via our online shop.

As well as having Wilson Henry LLP as our new sponsor on the front, the home shirt will have “Thank You NHS” on the back, as you can see from the graphic below.

We are giving supporters the opportunity to donate £2.50 per online purchase to Southport & Ormskirk Hospital Charity. This option will be available when placing your order.

Southport and Ormskirk Hospitals Charity raises crucial funds for key items of equipment that go and above and beyond what the NHS can normally provide. From the very youngest patients in our neonatal unit to the many older, frailer people we care for, we are helping to touch the lives of thousands of local people every year. Donations help us make our patients and their loved ones feel that bit more comfortable every day. With the support of vital donations we have just funded specialist art therapies for dementia care, play workers for our children’s ward and facilities for bereavement counselling to name just a few.

We have been at the forefront, every day, supporting the well-being of our remarkable staff and volunteer teams during the Covid-19 pandemic. So many staff have been pulling together to tackle this crisis head on and to save lives. The support and appreciation we have received from our local community has been hugely appreciated by all our frontline staff and volunteers.

 If you would like to support us today please visit www.SOHcharity.org or call the Charity team on t: 01704 704714. This is your hospital Charity, at the heart of your community and your donation really will transform so many lives now and in the future. Thank you

The shirt price is £35 for the adult sizes (Small to 6XL available) and £27.50 for the children’s. 

The club will keep the same design for the home shirt from last season. Our previous shirt sponsor Your Claim see their commercial responsibilities elsewhere for the coming season and we are grateful to Wilson Henry LLP for their sponsorship of both the home and change shirt.

The club remain committed to returning to a two-year cycle with the home and change kit.

The new change kit graphic is also illustrated here.

The prices are the same as the home shirt, £35 adult sizes and £27.50 for children’s sizes.

Note that for the change shirt adult sizes range from Small to 3XL.

We have been advised that delivery of the shirts will be approximately 6-8 weeks due to current restrictions.

SHIRT SPONSOR | Wilson Henry LLP

We are delighted to announce our new shirt sponsors for the 2020/21 season as award-winning business advisers and chartered accountants, Wilson Henry LLP.

The Liverpool-based company has been working across Merseyside and Cheshire for 50 years, helping a range of businesses to grow and develop.

Peter Alcock, business development partner for Wilson Henry, said: “The partners at Wilson Henry have a long association with the area both on a business and personal level.

“We believe it’s important local business supports grass roots football at a time when community involvement is crucial to a sustainable model at lower league level.

“Post Covid-19 football at all levels is facing challenging times, but particularly so at this level.  We are delighted to play our part  in the future success of Southport FC.

“We look forward to seeing the Sandgrounders  pushing for promotion in 2021 – Good luck to everyone associated with the club!”

Club Secretary James Tedford said: “Our 2019-20 shirt sponsors Your Claim see their commercial commitments elsewhere but Wilson Henry have jumped at the opportunity to have their name on the front of the famous old gold shirt.

“We are very pleased to have them on board and look forward to working with them.”

Pictured are Peter Alcock , Hilene Henry and Michael Needham from Wilson Henry.

The club will keep the same home shirt design from last season for the next campaign.

George Newell is pictured in the shirt with the new sponsors on the front.

Details on how to pre-order the home and new change shirt will be available from 6pm tonight.

QUESTIONS | Ian Kyle

We will be updating from the ground once again this Wednesday. If anyone has any questions they would like to put to Ian please send them in to rob@southportfc.net by 10am on Wednesday 24th June and we will be filming at the ground.

We will be able to show the early stages of the work on the 1881 Lounge toilets which started today as well as the latest on the pitch which held up very well under the deluges it faced last week.

 

UPDATE | Sponsor A Player

The latest person to be sponsored is the boss, Liam Watson, with Millring Horseboxes very kindly sponsoring him.

We had plenty of action on the player sponsors in the last couple of days.

Firstly Dr Norman Parkinson snapped up Jack Doyle, then “The Jack Carr Lads” are now the sponsor of Marcus Wood and Pinetree Garden Maintenance took up George Newell and with John Hardisty and The Scarisbrick National Services Club snapping up Charlie Oliver all the players are now sponsored.

John McCarthy and Dan Gabrielson (physio) are all still available and as more players come in they will be ready for sponsorship.

We have individual sponsorships available for the whole Southport first-team squad and staff.

Whether you’re a supporter or business, this is a great opportunity to get involved and be closely associated with your favourite Port player for the next season.

Each sponsorship is £250+VAT or 12 payments of £25. Your sponsorship will see you receive the shirt of your player at the end of the 2020/21 season and feature in the matchday programme throughout the campaign.

To sponsor a player, e-mail secretary James Tedford at james@southportfc.net or telephone 01704533422.
