Southport FC Former Players Association (Port Online)

On This Day: April 11th

Alan Spence and Colin Alty each scored a brace of goals on the way to recording a 5-1 win over Lincoln City on this day in 1966.

Having fallen to defeat to Sincil Bank on Good Friday, this Easter Monday win was all the sweeter and left the Sandgrounders just 4 points short of a record Fourth Division haul, and firmly on course for promotion.
