For the first time ever Southport FC will be playing their nine pre-season friendlies in a kit very different from their normal yellow and black. The club, and management, have very kindly agreed to Trust in Yellow organising the kit which will then be sold to the fans at the beginning of the 2013/14 season to raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support in memory of the late club photographer Sally Devine.
Congratulations to Steven Tames, who has received the award for Goal of the Season sponsored by Trust in Yellow.
Tames’ stunning goal at Hyde in August, which featured a run from the half-way line and fine 30-yard strike, was chosen by supporters in a closely-fought vote.
Aaron Chalmers has been voted the Trust in Yellow Supporters’ Player of the Month for March.
Chalmers, who has emerged as one of Southport’s most consistent performers in recent months, edged out Shaun Whalley and Godfrey Poku to win the award.
He received his presentation at half-time in the match against Alfreton Town on Bank Holiday Monday by Trust member Eleanor Taylor.
Since returning from a bad leg injury in February, Chalmers has established himself as a first-team regular, excelling after a switch to right-wing back.
He found the target in March in the defeat at Tamworth, adding to a fine free-kick scored against Woking the previous month.
Supporters will be able to vote for the final time this season at the end of April, with the presentation again made by a Trust member who votes for the winning player.
Voting in the Trust in Yellow Supporters' Player of the Month award is now open.
The online voting form can be completed HERE.
This month's vote will close earlier than usual, on Sunday 31 March, as the only chance to make the presentation is ahead of the match against Alfreton Town on Monday 1 April.
Every month throughout the season, Trust in Yellow members are asked to nominate their star performer from the Southport team, with everyone who votes for the winning player going into a draw to make the presentation.
This month, Shaun Whalley has scored three times, as well as winning a number of penalties, while Andy Owens, Neill Byrne, Chris Almond, Aaron Chalmers and Danny Hattersley have also been on the scoresheet.
Or has another player caught your eye in March?
Voting is open until Sunday 31 March. The member chosen to hand over the award will be contacted ahead of the match against Alfreton, when the presentation will be made.
