On This Day: March 24th

Southport Central had one aim in mind as they approached the game with South Shore on this day in 1894, and that was to secure the medals that had been promised to them by the Hon G N Curzon, MP, for securing a fourth placed finish.

They achieved this based on goal average thanks to a 5-1 win.
