Onthespot has received the full support of respected football scout Russ Parry after being banned from Southport Fotball Club.

Russ is the north west scout for England non league manager Paul Fairclough and both are disgusted with the club’s decision.

Russ is asked to visit Haig Avenue a number of times every season but said he is pleased to support OTS.

Russ said “what Southport FC have done is totally out of order. I think Onthespot Reporter gives the club better coverage than anywhere else and its a shame the club don’t appreciate it.

If I was you I would stop giving Southport Football Club any publicity and start reporting on the Sunday leagues because the officials and managers would be much more grateful for the coverage.” said Russ.

Why did they single out OTS in the first place?
