Southport have addressed claims that the club are charging a local amateur league to host finals at their Merseyrail Community Stadium.
It is being suggested that the National League North club are asking for an extortionate fee, but Southport have responded with the following statement:
The club is aware of social media posts relating to charging a local amateur league to host finals at the stadium. The club would like to state categorically that no fees have been agreed and as far as the club was concerned discussions were ongoing.
The last communication received from the league was on the 6th of March. We will respond to the league in due course.
