Coach travel 2018/19

During the close season, the Trust has met with Natalie Atkinson to discuss arrangements for supporters coach travel to away matches this season.

We are very pleased that we have agreed an arrangement which we feel will benefit all supporters in giving an improved service whilst retaining the usual benefits for Trust members.

Most important of all we hope it will enable more supporters to get to away matches to give the team the maximum support in what we all hope will be an exciting and successful season.

To enable the best deal to be done with companies, bookings of the coaches will now be done by the club. Natalie will be getting quotes from companies who can provide the team coach plus one or when necessary, more supporters coaches.

Our aim is to provide coaches for all the away league, FA Trophy and FA Cup matches. There may be a rare occasion when a match is rearranged at very short notice when it proves impossible to provide a coach but in general we intend to guarantee a service so that supporters can plan their travel with us well in advance and don’t have to make alternative arrangements.

 

Booking places

To make things easier it will now be possible to book and pay for places by using the club's online booking service. However, we realise that some supporters will prefer to book and pay directly in more traditional ways so the Trust office will still be open on Match days to take bookings.

You will still be able to contact the Trust Board members for information.

 

Prices

We are confident it will be possible for the club to negotiate competitive quotes from companies.

When prices for supporters are being calculated there will be two discounts. Trust members will continue to receive their discount which for longer journeys has been £5. Season ticket holders who are not Trust members will receive a 10% discount. It won't be possible to claim both discounts for the same booking.

We also intend to retain an extra reduction for under 16s for most trips and also have special offers for certain matches. Naturally the rules and legal requirements about having no alcohol on the coaches will be maintained and the club and Trust will not accept bookings from anyone whose behaviour on the coach or at matches harms the reputation of the Club or Trust. The Trust looks forward to working with the club on away travel and are confident this will be successful and show how club and Trust can both benefit by working together and in particular produce a better service and experience for supporters.

1992/93 reunion

25 years on from one of the finest seasons in Southport’s 137-year history, Trust in Yellow were delighted to welcome back many of the squad which brought treble success in 1992/93 and historic promotion to the then Vauxhall Conference after 15 years in the doldrums.

Over 120 supporters gathered in the club’s marquee after last Saturday’s game against Brackley Town to give an ovation to the side which brought much success and joy to the club in the 90s.

Witnessed by the current squad, the Trust also gave their own supporter voted awards for the season past. Jack Sampson won Player of the Season, presented by Kevin Mooney who was player of the year and captain 25 years ago.

Elliot Osbourne’s goal against York received the Phil Carder Goal of the season award. The award was presented by former Port favourite Leroy Dove and members of Phil’s family.

The Fan of the Season award was presented to Mike Billington’s family after fitting speech from TIY vice chairman Martin Robinson. Mike passed away earlier in the season and was cherished by all at Haig Avenue. His family were presented with the award by legendary goalscorer Steve Haw.

The Champion Newspapers Player of the Season presented by Ron Ellis was given to Jason Gilchrist.

An auction for a signed shirt and a quiz also featured with presentations from former manager and assistant of that side Steve Joel and midfielder Chris Walmsley. All raised vital funds for the Trust.

Young supporter Preston Rimmer was presented with a new drum to ensure a new generation of supporters can continue to be as vociferous.

The night was not complete without a fabulous rendition from Alan “Tintin” McDonald of “Oh When The Port!” which had the marquee in full voice and was a wonderful reminder of not only what a great team but what great characters Southport’s very own class of 1992.

Photos from the event are on the Trust's facebook page HERE.
