Southport FC Former Players Association

This is the online home of the Southport FC Former Players Association and is an historical record of Southport Football Club. It is not an official club website, it is independently maintained, but we are delighted that the club offers so much support to the Former Players Association itself.

Due to “the fire” much of the historical information that might have been available to future generations was lost. Thanks to a small group of very dedicated individuals spending countless hours doing research, the history of the club is now once again well documented. I would hesitate however to ever call it complete – there is always something else to learn.

The aim of this site is to pull together all the separate strands of research and publish it in one place, so that it is the most complete record available of every game that Southport Football Club have ever played, every player that has ever played for them and a documented history, all bundled into one. It helps us to meet the Former Players Association aim to help supporters new and old to recognise the contribution each and every player, manager, coach or official has made to the club, town and community.

There have been a number of contributors but particular mention and thanks must be given to club statisticians Geoff Wilde and Rob Urwin, and to historian Michael Braham. Geoff and Mike, as co-authors of “the book”, have kindly given their permission for their player profiles to be published here, updated where appropriate.

We all want the history of our club to be documented accurately so If you spot anything inaccurate please let me know.
