Bryan Griffiths

Full Name: Bryan Griffiths
Born: 21/11/1938 (Litherland)

Bryan Griffiths came next appointed following the dismissal of Bob Murphy. He was a manager the fans had long wanted to see in charge at Haig Ave. A full-back whose knowledge of the local non league football scene was at the time second to none. Things didn’t start too well! There was a big clear out with a lot of below standard players being brought in but some great results followed in the next two seasons under Griffiths, the highlights being an appearance in the third round of the FA Trophy, Southport’s appearance against league opposition in the FA Cup at Scunthorpe and a sensational 4-2 win in the FA Trophy at Telford, then one of the country’s leading non league sides.
1987/88 started well hopes were high that this could be the club’s season to return from the wilderness but suddenly it all went horribly wrong. A run of bad results ended on 6th November with Griffiths resigning for “decisions taken off the field during a period of enforced absence through work commitments”
