MATCH AND BALL SPONSORS v CREWE & NANTWICH

3 years ago, By Andrew Carney

The club was delighted to welcome former-player Michael Halsall and his guests to Waterloo Road on Saturday, and a host of other former-players.

Michael was a Southport RUFC (pre-RFC!) stalwart of renown who has continued to be a great supporter over the years. More than a few stories from the battle field were recounted as the memories come flooding back in tandem with the consummate pints slipping down in time honoured fashion.

 

The stellar guest list included David James the first team captain in the centenary season 1972-73, past-Chairman Martin Lockyer and former players Brian Jackson, Terry McGraw, Les Jackson, Keith Tierney and a host of others.

Current Chairman Andrew Carney lent his former-player weight to the occasion by sponsoring the ball and yet another great afternoon of pitch-side and bar-side noggins'n'nolstalgia was fuelled by his ersrwhile predessessor Martin bringing down his little snap shot albums which he has now kindly donated, beer stains and all, to the bulging club archive.

As the afternoon progressed other former players like Chris Parkinson and Jock MacPherson also arrived in their droves to add the occasion.

The Club thanks Michael and Andy, all their guests and everyone else for adding to the tremendous atmosphere at Waterloo Road and for their unstinting support and encouragement they gave throughout the game to their youthful successors on the pitch, who will gain strength from this to bounce back better and stronger after the disappointing defeat.
