Southport FC launch a pink kit 2016/17
Andy Bishop’s new-look Southport will begin their pre-season schedule this Saturday by sporting a brand new look of their own.
The Sandgrounders kick-off their preparations for the upcoming Vanarama National League campaign away at Bootle this weekend – and the players will be wearing a change of colours with their pre-season kit.
Sponsored by sportswear providers, Galaxy Football, and Trust in Yellow, the new kit, consisting of a pink shirt and black shorts, will be worn for all seven warm-up matches and will become the regular kit for friendlies in future seasons.
The new colours have been introduced after pre-season kits were used to raise money for charity in both 2013 and 2015.
Pictured with the new kit is Andy Bishop, the Southport manager, with Mark Parr of Galaxy Football (left) and Noel Warham, the Trust in Yellow vice chairman.
The Trust’s contribution comes from funds raised by club photographer Julia Urwin from the use of her photos last season.
The club will shortly be releasing the new home kit for next season.
Bishop’s players returned to training last week and, with 18 players taking part, the manager’s squad building is almost complete.
After the visit to Bootle, the Sandgrounders travel to Chorley next Tuesday, July 12. Bishop’s team play at home for the first time against Bury on Saturday July 23, before the new National League season begins on Saturday August 6.
