On This Day: March 3rd

Southport travelled to Doncaster Rovers on this day in 1962. The biggest disappointment for the Sandgrounders had been that the good football on display regularly wasn’t always turned into a positive result, highlighted by their eventual 17th place finish on 43 points. On this occasion however….the performance brought its just reward…
