Southport FC appoint new secretary

Southport Football Club are pleased to announce that James Tedford will become the new Club Secretary and Finance Administrator at the Merseyrail Community Stadium.

Joining the Senior Management Team at Scottish Women’s Champions, Glasgow City FC back in 2012, he was involved in a number of operational matters at the club. His main role being leading on the UEFA Women’s Champions League match organisation.

In August 2015 he made the switch down south to Chelsea Women to advise and co-ordinate their European participation during their maiden year in the competition and subsequently became Match-day Co-ordinator for all their domestic matches that season.

A individual with a vast knowledge of the football landscape, the club is delighted to attract someone of James’ calibre.

Witnessing the win over Boreham Wood, the Scotsman is excited about the opportunity at the Port; “Having spent the last six years working in football administration at two extremely forward thinking and ambitious clubs, I am grateful to be given this opportunity to work at another similar setup.

“After speaking with Natalie it was evident that Southport FC match my expectations on and off the pitch and I can’t wait to get started.”

James will start officially on Monday 19 November; with Ken Hilton working with him for a period of time to ensure the transition is smooth as possible as he relocates.
