On This Day: March 4th

John Coleman scored 4 on this day in 1986 as the Sandgrounders put 5 past bottom club Goole to climb to third in the table, leapfrogging rivals Marine and just a point behind leaders Gateshead and Morecambe.

Ron Naden had recovered well enough to start having, along with Rob Stugeon, missed the previous 2 games with flu and was amongst a number of changes as manager Bryan Griffiths experimented following the sale of Andy Mutch to Wolves.
