ANNOUNCEMENT | Everton Ladies Are In Town!

Southport Football Club are extremely delighted to announce that Everton Ladies will also use the Merseyrail Community Stadium for the first-half of the new 2018/19 season.

The Blue Girls, who kick off their FA Women’s Super League 1 campaign with a trip to Birmingham City on Sunday, will play at the home of Southport FC – which is also used by Everton Under-23s – for the first time against Reading Ladies for the Continental Cup fixture on September 16, kick-off 2pm.

Nine of the Toffees’ home fixtures are currently confirmed to be hosted at Southport, listed below. Each game will be catered towards a family friendly atmosphere and with admission prices kept low it gives everyone in the surrounding area the opportunity to witness top level professional football at affordable prices.

"To have Everton Ladies in Southport is another huge boost for the club and the town. Women’s football continues to grow at a rapid pace and this new partnership will benefit Southport FC as we aim to attract more women and girls into the beautiful game through our community programme."
