Southport FC Former Players Association (Port Online)

Match Report – Athletic News – 23/10/1888

Stanley went to Southport to open the new ground of the Central, and were beaten rather unexpectedly. They easily defeated the same team at the commencement of the season, but they were on this occasion without the services of Jones, who on the former visit of Stanley to Southport played very brilliantly, and this might to some extent account for the difference in the result.
