Full Time – Pre season friendly
Bootle 2-1 Southport
Southport’s first match of the season ended in defeat with Bootle scoring two from the penalty spot having taken the lead early on through Luke Fosters clinical header.
Southport played a different team after half time, with both sides containing a mix of first team players and trialists.
Despite a good work ethic on show from the Sandgrounders, it wasn’t enough to get past a plucky Bootle side.
Southport’s next friendly is away to Marine on Tuesday night, before welcoming a Wigan side to the Merseyrail Community Stadium on Saturday.
