For many years Southport Football Club has been in a period of decline. Underperformance both on and off the field, a lack of planning and a disconnect with dwindling home supporters has created a downward spiral. Relegation was an inevitable consequence of a lack of strategy, investment and leadership.
To take Southport back to its rightful place, at the heart of the town and the community and to make the football club achieve its potential requires a change of track; a reinvestment, a new beginning. This vision is articulated in Phil’s bid. When this takeover happens Phil’s proposed Board, working alongside Trust In Yellow, plan to steer the football club in the right direction, to bring a hope of success. To bring a football club that everyone can buy into. To bring an expectation of achievement.
It would appear, from the results of an extensive online poll, that 96% of supporters exercise a collective desire to see the #backthebid team take a controlling interest in the football club. This website, along with our other social media platforms, is a place for supporters to keep in touch with the movement to bring the football club back to the people and the town.
