Damien Moore MP encourages town to support Southport Football Club at upcoming games


Southport MP Damien Moore is encouraging those living in and around Southport who have never seen a Southport FC game in-person to consider heading to the stadium on Haig Avenue over the coming months.

His call comes following a recent visit to Southport FC to discuss the Club’s performance and hear of the work they are doing to engage the next generation of footballers and football fans.

Following a tour of the club’s facilities and playing grounds, Mr. Moore met with the Club’s Head of Commercial Operations, Steve Dewsnip, to see how the club had progressed since his last visit.

Earlier this year, Southport Football Club announced the re-launch of their Southport Football Club Academy partnership with Christ The King Sixth Form, offering Academy players the opportunity to study for a mixture or three A-Levels and/or BTECs whilst pursuing their football ambitions.

They also discussed the exciting plans which the club has for the future, and the ways in which Mr. Moore could support these as Southport’s MP.

Following the visit, Mr. Moore encouraged people who haven’t yet been to see a Southport FC game in-person to consider supporting them at one of their upcoming fixtures.

Southport FC face Chorley on 10th September, Leamington on 24th September, and Bradford Park Avenue on 27th September, with tickets available to book online in advance and under-12s attending for free.

Damien Moore, MP for Southport, said:

“It is always fantastic to visit Southport Football Club for a catch-up on how the team are doing, the Club’s plans for the future, and the support I can provide as their local MP.

“I was particularly pleased to hear of the work of the Southport Football Club Academy partnership with Christ the King Sixth From, which allows young Academy players the opportunity to progress their football ambitions whilst studying for qualifications.

“I know how proud we all are as a town to have such a fantastic Club and grounds in Southport, and it’s vital that we as a community support them as much as we can.

“If you’re looking for something to do over the coming months with friends and family, I’d encourage you to head over to Southport FC’s website and consider getting a ticket for a game or two!”
