TRAVEL WITH THE TRUST THIS SEASON

Once again this season, Trust in Yellow will be looking to arrange coach travel to as many of Southport's away matches as possible.

The Trust is in its eighth year of providing travel to Southport’s matches on the road and in that time coaches have run to the majority of fixtures.

Every year, the Trust's coach prices are put out to tender to local companies so the season's travel can be arranged for the cheapest available prices.

It is usually the case that demand is based largely on results on the pitch and unfortunately there often aren't enough bookings to fill a coach.

As a result, the coach fares are priced on a break-even basis of 30 supporters travelling and a discount may apply if there are more than that number. There is also a £3 reduction for paying in advance.

For the longer-distance trips, the fact that two drivers are needed is reflected in the price.

This season, in order to try and run travel when there wouldn’t otherwise be enough bookings to break even, the Trust will be looking to run a smaller coach if the demand is there.

All Trust members receive a £5 discount on every coach trip. Therefore, if you are not a member, it will not take long to get back your £10 membership fee!

In a change to the policy in recent seasons, under 16s can travel for half of the advertised price if accompanied by an adult member.

TRUST IN YELLOW FAN OF THE SEASON

Southport supporter Andrew Bostwick has been named the first Trust in Yellow Fan of the Season.

Andrew, who is an ever-present at the Merseyrail Community Stadium this season and a regular at the Sandgrounders’ away games, was announced as the award-winner at the final home match of the season against FC Halifax Town on Monday.

He was presented with a signed home shirt and a trophy having been nominated by his daughter Sophie.

“My dad has brought me up from a young age coming to watch Southport and hardly ever misses a game,” said Sophie.

"He works seven days a week but always makes time and space so he can come and watch Southport. The club means so much to him and works very hard to get to the matches.

“He always goes to away games and will find transport to get there to see his favourite players.

“My dad has always been by my side and no matter what he will make time to go and watch Southport play.

“He always goes for a beer at the club before the match to talk to other fans which he really loves doing.”

Andrew is pictured receiving his award from Trust chairman Alan Scarisbrick and daughter Sophie.

The Trust introduced the award this season as a way of recognising an unsung hero and a fan who demonstrates the sort of passion that sums up what it means to follow Southport.

The Trust would like to thank everyone who made a nomination for this season’s award and entries will open again at the start of the next campaign.
