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.
The trust is looking at running a coach to Cambridge on Saturday 5th April.
It will leave the Merseyrail Community Stadium at 9am with the prices being GBP29 for members (in advance) , GBP32 for members (on the day) , GBP34 for non members (in advance) , GBP37 for non-members (on the day)
