EMIRATES FA CUP | Support The Port Next Monday Night

EMIRATES FA CUP | Support The Port Next Monday Night

There can be something special about football under the floodlights.

As night falls, the ground comes alive and it helps to bring an extra edge to the atmosphere.

So with our Emirates FA Cup first round tie against Fleetwood Town taking place in front of the live BT Sport cameras next Monday night, we’re asking the town to get behind Steve Burr’s team and support the Port as we go in search of an upset under the lights.

After recording consecutive wins against York City and Torquay United, and on the back of four matches without defeat, Southport go into the tie in excellent form and having produced some of their best performances in recent seasons.

Fleetwood, managed by former Manchester City striker Uwe Rosler, currently sit mid-table in SkyBet League One.

As we saw when we went to Derby County two seasons ago, the cup has the capacity to generate huge interest and create memorable occasions.

This week, the club will be distributing posters throughout the town in order to attract extra support, we’ll be using social media and there will be adverts in the local press.

The club would like to thank Trust in Yellow, who have sent posters to their members to be printed and put in places of work, around the town and used on social media.

If you are able to do something similar, the club would be grateful for your help. Posters can be downloaded by clicking the graphics above or below and they can then be printed or posted on social media.

There promises to be a real sense of occasion as the FA Cup takes centre stage at the Merseyrail Community Stadium next Monday, so please make sure you’re there to cheer on the Port under the lights.
