1992/93 reunion

25 years on from one of the finest seasons in Southport’s 137-year history, Trust in Yellow were delighted to welcome back many of the squad which brought treble success in 1992/93 and historic promotion to the then Vauxhall Conference after 15 years in the doldrums.

Over 120 supporters gathered in the club’s marquee after last Saturday’s game against Brackley Town to give an ovation to the side which brought much success and joy to the club in the 90s.

Witnessed by the current squad, the Trust also gave their own supporter voted awards for the season past. Jack Sampson won Player of the Season, presented by Kevin Mooney who was player of the year and captain 25 years ago.

Elliot Osbourne’s goal against York received the Phil Carder Goal of the season award. The award was presented by former Port favourite Leroy Dove and members of Phil’s family.

The Fan of the Season award was presented to Mike Billington’s family after fitting speech from TIY vice chairman Martin Robinson. Mike passed away earlier in the season and was cherished by all at Haig Avenue. His family were presented with the award by legendary goalscorer Steve Haw.

The Champion Newspapers Player of the Season presented by Ron Ellis was given to Jason Gilchrist.

An auction for a signed shirt and a quiz also featured with presentations from former manager and assistant of that side Steve Joel and midfielder Chris Walmsley. All raised vital funds for the Trust.

Young supporter Preston Rimmer was presented with a new drum to ensure a new generation of supporters can continue to be as vociferous.

The night was not complete without a fabulous rendition from Alan “Tintin” McDonald of “Oh When The Port!” which had the marquee in full voice and was a wonderful reminder of not only what a great team but what great characters Southport’s very own class of 1992.
