Ten years ago today, on December 14 2005, the first public meeting was held for the proposed Southport FC supporters’ group.
The meeting was held in the function room at the Mount on Manchester Road, and those present elected to call a further meeting to determine whether the club’s supporters and the surrounding community wanted to form a trust.
The meeting was the first in a number of key events which, as interest mounted over the following months, culminated in the formation of Trust in Yellow in April 2006.
Above is the poster from the initial meeting and pictured below at the meeting are Jonathan O’Byrne, the Trust’s first chairman, and Jacqui Forster, from Supporters’ Direct, who both addressed the fans present.
The Trust is very proud to be celebrating its tenth anniversary in 2016 and we look forward to marking the milestone in several ways during the coming year.
