On This Day: December 6th

On this day in 1975 Southport travelled to Scunthorpe United and picked up their first win of the season, thanks to 19 year old George Dewsnip’s first League goal.

We also take a look at a highscoring game from the war-time period, when Bury were the visitors. Returning to the Southport line-up for the first time since the outbreak of the war was Joe ‘Hat-trick’ Patrick…ironically he was upstaged by fellow forward Deverall.
