CONGRATULATIONS | Noteworthy November

The club are extremely delighted to announce that Liam Watson and David Morgan have been acknowledged by the Vanarama National League in their monthly awards for the North division in November.

Liam Watson – Manager of the Month

After a difficult start to the season, the Southport Manager continued to work hard behind the scenes and results are now starting to show after showing belief in his talented squad.

When a legend returns, excitement naturally grows but thanks to a brilliant November the club’s start to the season is a thing of the past, as the club looks ahead to the challenges that face them.

Three fantastic away league wins set the tone. Kidderminster Harriers torn apart in front of their own fans before Hereford and Boston United were also well beaten. Port achieved FA Trophy progression too as in-form Chester were eventually seen off, with of course a victory in the FA Cup at home to Boreham Wood.

Unfortunately, Liam Watson was unable to collect his award this week but will receive it at Bradford tomorrow, with an official presentation to take place in front of the home fans in due course with David.

David Morgan – Player of the Month

The Port have cleaned up with this month’s awards – new captain David Morgan has capped off a superb month for the club with the Player of the Month accolade.

Having been made skipper of the side at the end of October, the midfield general has gone on to put in a number of dominant performances that has seen the Port fight on three fronts through the month.

He was behind impressive National League North wins against Kidderminster Harriers and Hereford as well as a last-minute victory at Boston United to move them out of the relegation zone.

The 24-year-old has been instrumental in Southport’s cups runs too – not content with beating National League Boreham Wood in the FA Cup First Round, Morgan went on to score a fantastic winner against high-fliers Chester as the side progressed to the next round of the FA Trophy.

Everyone at the club would like to congratulate both on what has been a memorable and rewarding month. Let’s keep the run going!
