Southport director Ian Kyle says they are looking ahead with optimism despite the fine handed out to the club by the National League.
Port were among 18 clubs in the top two tiers of non-league to be punished by the league at the end of last week.
Speaking as part of an update to supporters, Kyle said: “This has certainly been a 12 months during which some difficult decisions have had to be made. We have, however, been heartened by the amount of support we have received from the huge majority of Southport fans who have been able to recognise the bigger picture throughout this period.
“We now face a £4000 fine, plus the need to do further end-of-season work to the pitch, but we continue to look forward with confidence. Liam (Watson) is already building his squad for the next season, but we do rely, more than ever, on your continued support.”
