Two Southport FC directors have offered to refund all supporters who travelled to watch the Sandgrounders’ away defeat to Blyth Spartans last night.
Kevin Davies’ side fell to a 2-0 National League North defeat at Croft Park, the club’s sixth consecutive defeat. The last three of those losses came in a five day period during which Southport failed to score a single goal. Now directors Phil Hodgkinson and Ian Kyle have offered to reimburse those who made the 350-mile round trip after labelling the performance ‘disappointing’.
A statement from the board of directors issued on the club website stated: “In the opinion of the Board of Directors, tonight’s performance at Blyth Spartans fell below the standards we now expect at Southport Football Club.
“Additionally, considering this was the third scheduled date for this fixture, we are conscious of how difficult it was for supporters to travel to the game to support the team. The Board, and the First Team, are incredibly grateful to those supporters who did manage to travel to the North East this evening.
“We would like to assure supporters every attempt will be made to rectify the club’s current position during our remaining games.”
