Southport fans will have the chance to pay tribute to Earl Davis at Saturday’s home match against Dartford.
Trust in Yellow will be making a presentation to Earl at half-time as a way of recognising his achievements and service during his Southport career.
He will also be in the club shop from around 2.15pm to meet fans. So please get to the ground early to have a chat and bring along any memorabilia for him to sign.
Earl left the Sandgrounders at the start of the season and the Trust has been keen to formally thank him on behalf of supporters. He will also become an honorary member of the Trust.
Earl first joined the club in 2003, winning two Conference North championships during three spells that saw him make over 230 appearances.
Thanks to Trust board member Colin Aindow for making the arrangements.
Voting in February's Player of the Month award is now open to members of Trust in Yellow.
The online voting form can be completed HERE.
Every month throughout the season, members are asked to nominate their star performer from the Southport team, with everyone who votes for the winning player going into a draw to make the presentation.
This month, Karl Ledsham scored twice in the win against Barrow - including a spectacular volley - while Shaun Whalley, Neill Byrne, Liam Willis, Chris Almond and Andy Owens have also featured on the scoresheet. Aaron Chalmers also scored a fine free-kick in the defeat against Woking and, on his comeback from a bad leg injury, he has registered some very accomplished performances at right wing back.
Or has another player caught your eye in February?
Voting is open until Sunday 2 March. The member chosen to hand over the award will be contacted ahead of the match against Cambridge United on Tuesday 5 March, when the presentation will be made.
You can submit your vote in any of the following ways:
- Complete the voting form by CLICKING HERE
- E-mail email@example.com
- Text POTM followed by the player’s name and your name to 07790041514

Simon Grand has been voted Trust in Yellow’s Player of the Month for January.
The Southport captain won the award after pipping team-mate Shaun Whalley by a single vote in the supporters’ poll.
He was presented with his award ahead of the match against Barrow on Tuesday night by Trust member Charlie Rimmer.
Grand scored four goals during January - a brace in the matches against AFC Telford United and Lincoln City - as well as registering solid performances in the centre of defence.
He joins Whalley, Chris Lever and Karl Ledsham in winning the award this season.
Supporters will be able to next vote in February’s award at the end of the month, with the presentation again made by a Trust member who votes for the winning player.
Thanks to Dave Halsall, one of our exiled supporters, who has kindly had made and donated a joint Southport FC and Trust in Yellow flag.
Dave unveiled the flag at yesterday’s game at Nuneaton Town and it will now be a regular presence at home and away matches.
