TRUST IN YELLOW STATEMENT REGARDING THE DEPARTURE OF JOHN COLEMAN

The board of Trust In Yellow was disappointed to hear that John Coleman and Jimmy Bell had left the club and wish to put on record our thanks to them both for the fantastic job they did at Southport in the past few months rescuing a struggling team from a relegation that seemed inevitable at the end of January and producing some of the best home performances seen for many years.

Obviously not being involved in discussions between John and the club we cannot comment in detail on the reasons for John leaving. However, we do feel that the tone and content of the club statement on the website announcing the departure were very unfortunate and ill judged.

The statement showed a lack of the dignity and respect for the former management team we would have hoped for from our club and was also written in a way guaranteed to upset the majority of supporters. At a time when prospects seemed much more positive on and off the pitch this is an undoubted set back.

Members of the Trust will have the opportunity to express their views further at our members meeting on Thursday 15th May and these will be passed onto the club when we meet to discuss the floodlights and the possibility of further cooperation in the future.

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.
