Southport FC Former Players Association (Port Online)

2019 Inductee: David Gamble

‘Gambo’ earned the reputation, during his Eight and a half year spell with the Sandgrounders, for wielding the best left foot in Non League football. Signing  for the Sandgrounders in January 1991, he went on to make 263 (+43 sub) League appearances and scored 65 goals.

Free kick, corner or penalty, Gamble was the man, and cries of “Get Gamble On” are still regularly heard to this day when a referee indicates a free kick anywhere near striking distance of the goal.
