Design Our Ten Year Anniversary Badge

This coming year, 2016, sees Trust in Yellow celebrate our tenth anniversary.

When the Trust was formed back in 2006, a competition was run to give youngsters the chance to design the Trust’s badge. The winner was James Dorman, from the old Ainsdale Hope High School, and his design remains the Trust’s badge today.

To celebrate a decade since the Trust was formed and an important year coming up, we’re looking to produce a special tenth anniversary badge. As in 2006, the Trust is again running a competition to give youngsters the chance to design this badge.

We have written to all of the town’s primary and secondary schools to invite their pupils and students to enter the competition.

However, if you, your child, relative or friend would like to enter, you can also do so by contacting the Trust directly.

The competition is open to everyone aged 16 and under.

The winning design will be used throughout the coming year, replacing the Trust’s existing badge for 12 months.

Entries can be hand-drawn or computer-generated. In 2006, James’ winning design was submitted by hand and it was then transferred into a digital version.

We're asking for all entries to be received by Friday December 11.

The winner of the competition will receive a half-season ticket which entitles them to free entry to all of Southport’s home league matches between January and April. Children aged 11 and under are already admitted to matches for free, so if the winning entry is within this age group, they will instead receive a £25 voucher for the club’s matchday shop.

In addition, the winner will receive a family ticket for Premier Bowl at Ocean Plaza and a free 12-month Trust membership.

There will also be prizes for the second and third placed prize. Entries can be submitted by e-mail to fans@trustinyellow.com, by visiting the club shop or Trust office on a matchday, or by writing to Trust in Yellow badge competition, Southport FC, Merseyrail Community Stadium, Haig Avenue, Southport. PR8 6JZ.

THE LUKE GEORGE BEARD IS SHAVED

Having placed the future of his beard in the hands of supporters, Southport midfielder Luke George underwent a shave on Saturday.

After three months of fundraising, fans voted for the midfielder’s beard to be removed, raising £1,151.76 in the process.

The beard was shaved in front of fans in the Grandstand Bar following Saturday’s draw against Nuneaton Town. The shave was started by young supporter Lewis Welsh and completed by fan Steve Wignall, who had donated to the campaign.

Supporters had donated since November based on whether they thought Luke’s trademark beard should be shaved or saved.

Of the money raised, over £900 will go to Diabetes UK, a charity nominated by Luke as his sister, Holly, who was present at the shave, has suffered from diabetes since the age of 12.

Trust in Yellow would like to thank Luke for taking on the project with such enthusiasm and to all the supporters who donated.

Photos of the shave are below.

BRODIE COMPLETES PLAYER OF THE MONTH HAT-TRICK

Richard Brodie has been voted the Trust in Yellow Player of the Month for February.

It is the third time this season that Brodie has picked up the award, having scored three times in the space of four games during the month.

The striker was presented with his award by Southport fan Cameron Ayres ahead of Saturday’s draw against Nuneaton Town.

Brodie came out on top in the supporters’ poll after a month which featured a number of fine performances, including an excellently-taken goal to earn Sothport a draw against second-placed Macclesfield Town.

Thanks to everyone who took the time to vote.

Supporters will have the chance to vote for March’s award at the end of the month.

WHO IS YOUR PLAYER OF THE MONTH FOR FEBRUARY?

Voting in the Trust in Yellow Player of the Month for February is now open.

Every month throughout the season, fans are asked to nominate their star performer from the Southport team and one supporter will be selected to make the presentation to the winning player.

You can vote using our online voting form HERE.

February has seen a mixed set of results with performances improving as the month progressed.

With three goals in four matches, including an excellently-taken equaliser against Macclesfield Town, Richard Brodie was the leading scorer during the month.

The striker turned in a number of good performances, while Paul Rutherford, after waiting the best part of two seasons to score his first Southport goal, found the target at both Alfreton Town and Dover Athletic, securing the Sandgrounders a point.

Or has another player caught your eye in February?

Voting is open until 8pm on Friday 6 March and the presentation will be made ahead of the match against Nuneaton Town on Saturday 7 March.

 

You can submit your vote in any of the following ways:

- Use the online voting form HERE

- E-mail fans@trustinyellow.com

- Text POTM followed by the player’s name and your name to 07861416859

- Complete a voting slip at the Trust office (next to the club shop)

 

A polite reminder that all votes are vetted, so any multiple entries or ones submitted without a name or valid e-mail address will not be counted.

Since the award was introduced, the club's junior supporters have taken real delight in making the presentation to the winning player.

In a slight change to previous seasons, you can now nominate yourself, your child or any other friend or family member to present the award by contacting the Trust in the same ways you can vote above.

The Player of the Month award is one of several initiatives run by the Trust to promote greater supporter-involvement and strengthen the link between fans and players.
