DAVE ROBERTS | Rest In Peace

It is with great sadness that we have learned of the passing of Southport FC member, programme subscriber and lifetime fan, Dave Roberts.

Dave passed away peacefully in the early hours of Sunday morning aged 72.

Dave always rejoiced that ‘Port are a true family and friendly club. He had many friends at the club which he met and spoke to at home games. He will be missed by everyone but especially his best friends Dave Reynolds and Dave & Marie Coates whom he sat with in the main stand.

Supporting Southport since 1958, he travelled extensively to away matches (albeit not too many in recent seasons), was a past season ticket holder, this season joining the new membership scheme.

He flew in from abroad to see Southport play Hartlepool when we won the league in the 72/73 season. His loud supporter voice was not that of one of the main stand moaners. He held firm opinions but was respected as someone who supported the team through thick and thin.

Dave subscribed to the programme and it was only last week he was chasing up for omitting to send him his FA Cup programme by e-mail.

His wish is to have half his ashes scattered at Haig Avenue and we will make arrangements for that to happen with the family.
