Bingham's Boys: The Heroes of '66

It is 50 years since one of the most memorable seasons in Southport's history.

Under the management of the legendary Billy Bingham, the Sandgrounders reached the fifth round of the FA Cup, including famous wins over Stockport County, Ipswich Town and Cardiff City.

To mark half a century since then, Trust in Yellow is delighted to be hosting a very special event with the players who made it all possible.

Bingham’s Boys: The Heroes of ’66, will take place in the Grandstand Bar on Saturday February 13, after Southport’s home match against Braintree Town.

This date is special because it is 50 years and a day after a crowd of over 14,000 crammed into Haig Avenue to see Bingham’s Sandgrounders beat Cardiff 2-0 in the fourth round.

The event will start at 5.30pm and the former players will speak to supporters about what it was like to be part of such an important season in the club’s history.

Further details of the event will be announced shortly.

Among the players present will be Colin Alty, the scorer of a dramatic late winner against Ipswich at Portman Road, Ron Smith and Alan Spence, who both scored in the win over Cardiff, Alex Russell, Tony Beanland plus others.

It remains Southport’s best FA Cup run since 1931, and the majority of the players from that campaign also won promotion with the Sandgrounders to what is now League One the following season, before playing against Everton in the cup a year later.

It is an event not to miss, so please make a note of the date as we celebrate the anniversary of a special moment in the club’s history.
