Southport Chairman stands down

Southport chairman Charlie Clapham and vice-president Sam Shrouder have left their roles with immediate effect.

The club were relegated last week for the first time since their promotion to the National league 5 years ago after losing 3-0 to Dover.

Clapham said his position had become “untenable” following criticism in the media and on social media.

It has been decided that Director Nigel Allen will take on the chairmanship on until a new chairman is found.

A club statement read: “The board will urgently seek to establish any level of interest in bringing in investors who may wish to take a controlling interest in the ownership of the club.”

Fans have had mixed reactions over the news:
