As Southport FC marks its 130th anniversary, Trust in Yellow will host the fourth former players’ reunion on Sunday 9 October 2011 at the Prince of Wales Hotel, Southport .
The event has been held every 10 years since 1981and the Trust is pleased to have taken over the running of the latest reunion, with assistance from previous organisers Geoff Wilde and Michael Braham.
The evening is always well attended by players from various eras, including some of the most prominent names from the club’s past. There will again be a strong representation from the Sandgrounders’ Football League days, while a big turnout is also expected from the Non-League players.
An open invitation is extended to all former players of the club, with the Trust currently in the process of directly approaching as many as possible.
Although a personal invitation will be sent to a large number of players, the Trust would ask anyone who has played in the Non-League years to contact Rob Urwin on 077900-41514 or via e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org to register their interest.
With the chance of a reunion so rare, it is always an occasion for past players to remember.
A £15 ticket will include a buffet menu and players can bring a guest. The evening will start from 5pm, with a limited number of tickets available to Trust members.
Relegation has naturally brought a great reaction amongst supporters of the club both members and non-members of the Trust.
The board of the Trust will meet next week and there is a members’ meeting on the 2nd June where there will be opportunity for all members to discuss all issues in full. By that time any possible reprieve for us in the Conference Premier may be clearer.

They think it’s all a Question of Sport! - Tuesday, 26th April, Grandstand Bar.
Based on a mixture of the two popular TV Sports Quiz programmes, the evening will feature two teams. Liam Watson will captain a team of four from the club and they will play a team of four supporters. Liam has selected his team but is not revealing their identity yet but it will contain at least one current squad member.
The night will also celebrate the 5th Anniversary of Trust In Yellow and Trust President, Eric Redrobe, together with a few other former players will be in the audience.
Tickets are now on sale for £2 to Trust In Yellow Members, £3 Non Members and can be obtained in the Club Shop on Good Friday (9.0am to 12 noon) or Club Shop or Trust Office at the Darlington match, or on the coach to Tamworth,
