On This Day: February 11th

When you look back at the promotion season of 1966/67 there are some games that stand out as catalysts for what was to come.

On this day in 1967 Southport enjoyed a resounding 4-0 success over Stockport County who would eventually go on to become League champions.

Jim Fryatt and Alan Spence each scored twice on this day and shortly afterwards Torquay United stepped in to sign Fryatt for £5,000. He had been there less than 12 months but had made a big impact. The club used the proceeds from the sale towards strengthening their forward line by securing striker George Andrews from Cardiff City for £6,000 and outside-right Stuart Shaw from Crystal Palace for £2,750.
