So our record is very poor against this team.
So let's have a big turn out on Tuesday evening to help turn this around.
They have a very good manager, who l would welcome here if Craig moved on, which l would be very dissapointed if he did.

Hurry up with your report Oxo.


Just got back so here it is Prof. First thing to say is the team in general looked fresh and well rested. I agree with what KP says in his post regarding the early part of the first half however, We gradually got on top of them the free kick from which the goal came from was Thewlis doing what he does best ie: running directly at em and being pulled back by a defender who had already been booked and should have had a second yellow ( in fairness he squared it up later when Whittle could have received a second yellow so fair enough). Great to see Thanoj step up and replicated the Carshalton goal the keeper admiring it flying in the top corner, a thing of beauty. Second half we were comfortable and playing some good stuff and that good enterprising play lead to a lovely goal with quick accurate passing in a neat triangle leading to a peach of a cross from Woolford that saw Thanoj power in an unstopable header, two nil and comfortable still creating openings and then the usual, A long throw (which really was their only real threat all game) bounced three times before it was headed in. It looked as though the last ten minutes could be awkward but they created very little and our third goal was quite amusing for us standing by the corner as we were saying to Thanoj give it to Woolford then keep it in the corner and run down the clock but the bugger wouldn't listen and crossed it straight on to the head of Ainge who almost tore the net. In all very satisfying and very encouraging a very long journey but thank you boys for making it worth it. UTP

Alright I know it was Shiels but Aingee said thanks.

Arrived home about 45 mins ago after a very pleasant drive back to Bolton, despite the awful route it is to Southport across Lancashire.

After a fairly slowish start for the first 10-15 mins when Southport had most of the play, it was a game which we might well have won 6-1 and not been flattered by such a scoreline.

An excellent  all-round team performance today. The team looks so much better balanced with Thanoj back and just the two playing up-top.

I'm sure the usual guys will be posting their detailed match reports and their take on things, but I must mention the two excellent quick fire saves Peter Crook made whilst it was 1-0. Even a couple of Southport fans I was talking to (sat in the away section of the main stand) were applauding.

Both said they were impressed by our play, mentioning four of our players in particular (by shirt number) as the type of players they wished Southport had - Abbott, Thanoj, Knowles & Thewlis.

One of them was even reminiscing about when we won there in the FA Cup in the early 1970s as a NPL side and they were in the Football League 4th Division. Both he and I were at that game as teenagers and we"re both now in our 60s. Talk about making you feel old!! Lol!!
