END OF SEASON PRESENTATION

Following yesterday’s final home match of the season against Grimsby Town, Trust in Yellow hosted the annual end-of-season awards.

It was great to see the Grandstand Bar full and the Trust would like to thank all the fans who attended.

The presentation photos can be viewed in the slideshow with details of the awards below.

 

 

Luke Foster picked up the club’s Player of the Season award as voted for by supporters. Richard Brodie finished second in the voting and Luke George third.

The Phil Carder Goal of the Season was won by John Marsden for his fantastic strike in the 3-3 draw against Lincoln City.

Every season, the award for the best goal is run by the Trust and voted for by supporters. The award has been renamed from this season in memory of Phil, the Trust’s treasurer, who sadly passed away in January, and was presented by Phil’s partner, Doreen, and his sister, Janet.

Doreen and Janet also received the Trust’s Fan of the Season, which was won by Phil.

With 12 league goals, Richard Brodie picked up the club’s Top Goalscorer award, presented by Martin Robinson. He also received the Champion Newspapers Player of the Season from Ron Ellis.

The Players’ Player of the Season was won by Paul Smith. Luke George was also made an honorary member of the Trust for his support and involvement in the recent Shave It or Save It fundraiser and was presented with his membership certificate.

PRESENTATION EVENING - SATURDAY 18TH APRIL

Over recent seasons the various awards for such things as Player of the Season and Goal of the Season have been made on the pitch. However, with the club the Trust has decided it would be nice to make these presentations in the more relaxed setting of the Grandstand Bar after match.

We hope, therefore that as many supporters as possible will stay behind after the last match of the season against Grimsby. The presentations will start once all the players and management are changed and have finished their post match duties.

There will all the usual awards and we are very pleased that Phil Carder's family have agreed to come along and make the presentation for Goal of the Season of the new trophy in his name.

WORLD CUP SWEEPSTAKE PRESENTATION

Before kick-off at Saturday’s opening match against Forest Green Rovers, a presentation was made by Trust in Yellow to supporter John Dennis as the winner of this summer’s World Cup Sweepstake.

Having been paired with Germany in a draw made by Southport manager Martin Foyle ahead of the tournament, John claimed the £100 cash prize after his country emerged victorious in Brazil.

Thanks to John and the other 31 fans who entered the sweepstake during the summer.

John was presented with his prize by Trust membership secretary Bill Sloan ahead of the weekend’s match.

John has kindly donated his winnings to the Liverpool Women’s Charity. More details on the charity can be found here.

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.
