A day to remember for Bingham's Boys

Yesterday, we hosted a fantastic event to celebrate Southport’s magical FA Cup run half a century ago.

Bingham’s Boys: The Heroes of ’66, took place in a packed Grandstand Bar after the match against Braintree Town - 50 years and a day after the 2-0 home win over Cardiff City in the fourth round of the cup.

The Trust was thrilled to welcome all seven of the surviving members from that famous match against Cardiff, as well as four other players who featured during that season.

The highlight was undoubtedly the appearance of the great Billy Bingham, who the Trust was delighted to welcome to the post-match celebrations.

All of the players, plus Bingham, received honorary Trust memberships to recognise their considerable achievements during 1965-66 and in the following seasons during what was a golden period for the club.

Highlights were shown of the win against Cardiff, before six of the legends took to the stage to share some wonderful stories from the cup run and their time with the club.

The Trust was very pleased with the turnout from supporters, with the Grandstand Bar packed to capacity. A number of fans travelled from different parts of the country to be at the event and we’d like to thank everyone who attended and supported it.

The Trust would also like to thank the former players for making it such a fantastic day for us all.

Various people helped in the planning and on the day of the event, and the Trust is very grateful to everyone who assisted.

Photos of the event are on the Trust’s facebook page.

This Saturday - Bingham's Boys: The Heroes of '66

This coming Saturday, we host a special event to celebrate one of the greatest ever seasons in Southport's history.

Bingham's Boys: The Heroes of '66, takes place after the match against Braintree Town in the Grandstand Bar from 5.30pm.

This date is special because it is 50 years and a day since the Southport team managed by Billy Bingham won their FA Cup fifth round tie against Cardiff City in front of a crowd of 14,230 at Haig Avenue.

We're delighted that all seven of the surviving members from the team which beat Cardiff will be in attendance. Other players from that season will also be there.

The event will start with BBC highlights from the first half of the win over Cardiff before the players will share their memories from that famous cup run, including a question and answer session. The event ten concludes with second half highlights.

Entry is free, so please come along as we celebrate one of the most memorable achievements by a Southport team.

Please note that, even if the match against Braintree is postponed, the event will go ahead as planned from 5.30pm.
