Friendly Match At Southport On 20th of July.

Cook became Manager of Southport in 2006, his first managerial job. It proved too much for him, they had just turned full-time. He had to build the team from scratch and it proved too big a task for someone that had never managed a club before, so his contract was torn up in January of that season.

They play at the Merseyrail Community Stadium (Formerly Haig Avenue), the capacity is 6008 (1,844 seated). They finished 20th in the Conference National this season narrowly avoiding relegation and are currently manager less.

Their nicknames are The Sandgrounders, The port and The yellows. When they played in the Central League in 1918 they changed their name from Southport Central to Southport Vulcan having been brought by the Vulcan Motor Company, becoming the first club to take a sponsor's name.

In 1921 now named Southport they joined the football league, becoming a founder member of the Third Division North. They lost their football league status in 1978 when they were replaced by Wigan Athletic, they were the last club to leave the Football League through the re-election process.

Honours: Division Four Champions 1972-3
