Voting in the Trust in Yellow Player of the Month for February is now open.

Every month throughout the season, fans are asked to nominate their star performer from the Southport team and one supporter will be selected to make the presentation to the winning player.

You can vote using our online voting form HERE.

February has seen a mixed set of results with performances improving as the month progressed.

With three goals in four matches, including an excellently-taken equaliser against Macclesfield Town, Richard Brodie was the leading scorer during the month.

The striker turned in a number of good performances, while Paul Rutherford, after waiting the best part of two seasons to score his first Southport goal, found the target at both Alfreton Town and Dover Athletic, securing the Sandgrounders a point.

Or has another player caught your eye in February?

Voting is open until 8pm on Friday 6 March and the presentation will be made ahead of the match against Nuneaton Town on Saturday 7 March.


You can submit your vote in any of the following ways:

- Use the online voting form HERE

- E-mail

- Text POTM followed by the player’s name and your name to 07861416859

- Complete a voting slip at the Trust office (next to the club shop)


A polite reminder that all votes are vetted, so any multiple entries or ones submitted without a name or valid e-mail address will not be counted.

Since the award was introduced, the club's junior supporters have taken real delight in making the presentation to the winning player.

In a slight change to previous seasons, you can now nominate yourself, your child or any other friend or family member to present the award by contacting the Trust in the same ways you can vote above.

The Player of the Month award is one of several initiatives run by the Trust to promote greater supporter-involvement and strengthen the link between fans and players.

Trust in Yellow has been very pleased with the response to the fundraiser launched with midfielder Luke George and Diabetes UK.

There is now less than a fortnight remaining to make a donation, as the total amount raised will be added up at the end of the first week in March to decide whether Luke's beard is shaved or saved.

The Trust is giving fans the ultimate say on whether Luke’s trademark beard should stay or go while also raising funds in the process.

Supporters are being asked make a donation based on whether they think the beard should be shaved or saved, and whichever raises the most money by 8 March will win.

There are only two home matches remaining during the campaign, so please donate in person or online using the details below.

All funds raised will be split equally between the Trust and Diabetes UK.

The campaign has received good publicity in the press and was also discussed during Luke's interview with ITV Granada Reports in their feature ahead of the FA Cup match against Eastleigh.

You can watch the ITV interview here:

You can donate in any of the following ways:

- Call in at the club shop or Trust office at the matches against Halifax Town on 3 March or Nuneaton Town on 6 March and put your money in the yellow tin to shave it or black tin to save it

- Through the Trust's PayPal above - Click donate and type ‘shave’ or ‘save’ in the comments box.

- Via Just Giving Again, type ‘shave’ or ‘save’ in the comments box.

Regardless of how you donate or which option you choose, the funds will be split equally between the Trust and Diabetes UK.

You can make a one-off donation or simply bring in your loose change whenever you pass on a matchday.

The campaign is all a bit of fun so please get involved. Thanks for your support

Following the success of the first competition last season, TIY is pleased to announce that it is again running a 'Fan of the Season' competition.

We are looking to recognise a supporter who has made that special extra effort to give loyal support to the players and team at matches in season 2014/15. So this is not just about that band of fantastic people who give hours of their time in voluntary work for the club and without whom the club couldn’t be successful. We are sure the club has ways of recognising their efforts.

Our 'Fan of the Season' competition is for any supporter who has gone that extra mile this season in following and supporting their team . Do you know someone who you think has shown a special passion for the club? Is there someone within the Southport FC fan community who is an unsung hero deserving recognition? If you know such a person then let us know.

Email, telling us in no more than 150 words how you have been inspired by someone else's commitment.

Alternatively you can download the NOMINATIONS FORM HERE and return it to us in person at the Trust office or club shop, by e-mail or by post using the details on the form.

The closing date is TUESDAY 31 MARCH.

The winner will receive their trophy at the end of season presentation evening when the various players’ awards are given out.
