John Warrington: A Footballing Journey
An excellent start to my reign as Southport boss. I would have liked us to win by a lot more but a win is a win and it means a safe passage through to the next round of the FA Cup.
Southport drawn away at Needham Market in the FA Cup Third Qualifying Round
Another 1-0 win, this time in our first National League North game. This win was extremely impressive as AFC Fylde is never an easy place to go as Tranmere found a few years back. It's also great to kick the season off with three points.
I was a little disappointed to lose the clean sheet right at the end but I'm more than happy with the three points and a good performance.
I would have liked to have won by more goals but job done in the FA Cup, onwards into the 4th qualifying round.
Southport drawn at home against Altrincham in the FA Cup 4th Qualifying Round
A really good result away at Chorley but losing Zehn Mohammed for 5 weeks - 2 months with a hamstring strain is far from ideal.
Goalkeeper Cameron Gregory joins on loan from Shrewsbury.
YESSSSSSSSSS! Unbelievable. Cameron Gregory has made himself a hero already, saving a penalty in normal time and pulling off a string of top draw saves before then saving two in the shootout. What a guy!
Southport drawn away at Scunthorpe in the FA Cup 1st Round
Another solid performance and another three points. Interestingly, I checked the league odds and following our signings we are now favourites to win the league!
A solid 1-0 win at Latimer Park to round off the month and we continue our 100% record so far.
