This Saturday - Bingham's Boys: The Heroes of '66

This coming Saturday, we host a special event to celebrate one of the greatest ever seasons in Southport's history.

Bingham's Boys: The Heroes of '66, takes place after the match against Braintree Town in the Grandstand Bar from 5.30pm.

This date is special because it is 50 years and a day since the Southport team managed by Billy Bingham won their FA Cup fifth round tie against Cardiff City in front of a crowd of 14,230 at Haig Avenue.

We're delighted that all seven of the surviving members from the team which beat Cardiff will be in attendance. Other players from that season will also be there.

The event will start with BBC highlights from the first half of the win over Cardiff before the players will share their memories from that famous cup run, including a question and answer session. The event ten concludes with second half highlights.

Entry is free, so please come along as we celebrate one of the most memorable achievements by a Southport team.

Please note that, even if the match against Braintree is postponed, the event will go ahead as planned from 5.30pm.
