Join Trust in Yellow - Get Involved!

As we enter our tenth year, it has never been a better time to be a member of Trust in Yellow.

During the current season, we have seen the long-awaited fruit of many members' labours with the erection of the new floodlights, which have made a fantastic difference to the matchday experience.

The new Get Involved! series of events was launched with a Meet the Manager session in August and has included a quiz, Mark Heaton Tribute evening, Race Night and Christmas Party, with more to follow. We launched our first Calendar, which has proved to be a sell-out, even on the second print run.

We've seen two phenomenal reunions of much-loved sides, with summer’s reunion and fans’ match with the Conference North winning side of 2005, and the Bingham's Boys event earlier this month commemorating the fantastic FA Cup run of 50 years ago - and it is particularly fitting that arguably Southport's two most successful and well-known managers, namely Billy Bingham and Liam Watson, were in attendance.

We're also looking forward to engaging with the club in a more pro-active way moving forward, with regular meetings to ensure supporters are fully informed about what is happening at the club, as well as being able to communicate their own views and concerns.

As in previous years, we continue to organise coach travel to games, and we have listened to fans' requests in ensuring that the fares this season have been the cheapest we have ever offered.

We have also given supporters the opportunity to vote on the Player of the Month award, with junior supporters being offered the opportunity to present the trophy. We will also be organising the End of Season Awards Evening which will see supporter involvement once again.

There are many more things which we do on behalf of our members, but what is clear is that as we prepare to enter our second decade, Trust in Yellow is moving forward to a bigger and brighter future. Together we are stronger, and it would be wonderful if all supporters could be a part of our winning team, as one of the largest shareholders in the Club.

An Annual membership is just £10 and all members will receive a share certificate. Family membership for 2 adults and up to 3 children is £20. The Trust's office situated by the Jack Carr Stand turnstiles is always open to supporters before and after matches.

Any e­mail enquiries can be sent to fans@trustinyellow.com.

Don't delay - join Trust in Yellow today! Thank you for your support.

Trust board to meet with club

Members of the Trust in Yellow board have arranged to meet with representatives from the football club, including the club chairman, Charlie Clapham, prior to the match against Halifax Town on Saturday March 5. We will be endeavouring to agree a regular timetable for such meetings and shall notify members of this.

The Trust board is keen to communicate the wishes of Trust members and ask the questions which they wish answered by the hierarchy of the club.

Therefore, we are asking if any members wish to submit questions for consideration for the agenda, please email them to us at fans@trustinyellow.com or alternatively send us a message through facebook or twitter, on or before Wednesday March 2.

We cannot promise to answer any specific questions, and indeed it is plausible that we may receive too many to fit into the time available. We will, however, endeavour to address all pertinent issues raised by members in the next few meetings with the club. Many thanks in advance for your consideration and contributions.

Ten-year badge presentation

Ahead of the recent home match against Braintree Town, a presentation took place for the winner of the competition to design a ten-year badge for Trust in Yellow.

To celebrate the Trust’s tenth anniversary in 2016 and a milestone year for the Trust, local school children were invited to design a special badge to be used during the year ahead.

The Trust was delighted to receive a total of 144 entries, which were narrowed down to a shortlist of 23 before supporters were asked to select the winner from four finalists.

The new badge is designed by Harriet James-Hodges, from Ainsdale St Johns Primary School, whose entry came out on top in a poll run during January.

Harriet was presented with a copy of her winning design and prizes at the recent home match against Braintree by Alan Spence, Southport’s all-time record goalscorer, and Trust chairman Martin Robinson.

Harriet’s design will be used as the Trust’s badge throughout the year and will be the focal point for the Trust’s ten-year celebrations.

The Trust would like to thank all the schools and children who took part. Not only did the number of entries received surpass expectations, but the quality of the designs was of the highest standard and choosing a shortlist and four finalists was a very difficult task.

It was clear from the entries that so many children had put a lot of time and thought into their designs, and the Trust was thrilled to see such enthusiasm for the competition.
