The Sandgrounders announce Taylor as new manager
Southport have had a disappointing season this year and were relegated in 23rd place despite some stronger form towards the end of the season. However they sacked their manager and now the hunt for the new one has concluded with Taylor.
Mark Taylor was born in Newcastle in 1987 and has been linked with many jobs this year such as the one at Dover. He has only ever played Sunday League football however Southport have seen fit to make him their new manager.
There have been minor fan protests at the club regarding the clubs lack of ambition to get back into the football league where many fans feel they belong, these were made larger due to the relegation of the club to the Skrill North.
We spoke to several Southport fans.
Fan No.1: ‘I have supported this club for 40 years but I haven’t seen a worse decision from the club.’
Fan No.2: ‘I believe that we must give Mark a chance but we should have chosen someone local.’
Fan No.3: ‘There is a reason why he’s been appointed and we should respect that.’
Mark Taylor will meet the press tomorrow at 11AM.
