General Meetings

AGM on Tuesday September 20

We hold our AGM on Tuesday (20th) at 7.30pm in the Grandstand Bar.

We hope as many members as possible will attend to discuss the recent changes at the club and what the Trust's reaction should be. We have already agreed an initial meeting between representatives from the Trust board and the new board of directors and there will be the opportunity for members to suggest what issues TIY should raise with the club at this meeting.

There will also be a presentation on the Trust's proposed scheme to improve disabled facilities at the club as well as details of the Trust's 'Get Involved' series of events for the season culminating with the exhibition at the Atkinson next spring to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the club winning promotion from the Fourth Division.

There are still vacancies on the Trust Board and members who might be interested to be co-opted are particularly invited to attend on Tuesday to find out more of what it involves.

Pre-season kit

We’re delighted that Trust in Yellow will feature prominently at all seven of Southport’s friendlies this pre-season.

As they prepare for the campaign ahead, Andy Bishop’s squad will play their warm-up matches in a brand new pre-season kit, which is part sponsored by the Trust.

It means that the Trust’s name will feature on the shorts and sleeves of every player this summer and it will also become the regular kit for friendlies in future seasons.

The Trust would like to thank club photographer Julia Urwin, who has kindly donated the funds raised from the use of her photos last season to cover the Trust’s contribution to the project.

Also sponsored by sportswear providers, Galaxy Football, the new kit, consisting of a pink shirt and black shorts, will be worn for the first time this Saturday, when Southport open their pre-season schedule away at Bootle.

Pictured with the new kit is Andy Bishop, the Southport manager, with Mark Parr of Galaxy Football (left) and Noel Warham, the Trust in Yellow vice chairman.

The new colours have been introduced after pre-season kits were used to raise money for charity in both 2013 and 2015.

After the visit to Bootle, the Sandgrounders travel to Chorley next Tuesday, July 12. Bishop’s team play at home for the first time against Bury on Saturday July 23, before the new National League season begins on Saturday August 6.

Trust Statement

Like all genuine Southport supporters, members of the Trust board were very disappointed by some of the events at Chester on Saturday. It appeared that a coach full of people arrived late, many the worse for drink who tried to cause trouble. Fortunately this was averted but at the expense of having to call for a large police presence which we are not used to at our matches.
Obviously this coach had NOTHING to do with the official Trust In Yellow coach but it does emphasise why we cannot permit drinking on TIY coaches to and from matches. If for instance the police at Chester had decided to search our coach and had found evidence of people drinking on it there could have been serious consequences for the Trust and the coach company.
If people cannot agree to the non-drinking rule on the coach we will refuse their bookings

Due to a lack of bookings there will be no supporters' coach to Bromley.

The FA Trophy tie at Dover is on January 16th. The fare is £29 for Trust members, £22 for junior members and £34 for non-members. We are waiting for confirmation from the coach company but it will have an early morning departure time.
A decision will be made on Saturday as to whether it is viable to run this coach so please book now if interested.
