Southport’s new colours


January 11, 1940
At the start of the season Southport F.C. bought a new set of alternative colours in Glasgow Celtic style – green hoops and all. When the sectional football started it was thought that he moths would have more chance of “using” these outfits, which cost £20, than Southport, because there was no side in their section which had conflicting colours.

Actually, Southport were able to try out their new plumes in a cup-tie at New Brighton and again at Bolton, so they are not bemoaning their fate in having spent £20 for almost nothing.
