See Kevin Davies has gone, looks like Southport are going for it next season

They go for it at least twice every year. They have had 11 managers in the last 5 years.

I didn't realise but they actually went full time mid season around when they Brough in Davies and Gilchrist. Big new stadium regeneration plans. Looks like they found a 5'er or two down the back of the sofa.

Reading their statement it says that they want to appoint a manager that has experience winning leagues, not being funny but they can’t be many of them about - managers who have won leagues are likely to be in a job.

Funny I was thinking that, but now that’s history and has managed a side that failed to get to the playoffs :lol:

In a interview I read with Davies I read they were still part time. Don't blame club for improving ground but I get the feeling the owners are deluded. Changing managers twice a season or more won't get them to the football league or even out of the national league north.

Only 150 season tickets sold. Ground upgrade may only be necessary repairs, so "going for it" may be a stretch, unless they are being heavily sugar daddied. Darlo were such a disorganised pushover at their place, that I didnt notice any talent in their squad. Nuneaton under TW around the same time looked more pacy and far more dangerous.
