VANDALS GO ON TOWN CENTRE WRECKING SPREE by Ollie Cowan

MINDLESS YOBS are waging vandal attacks across Southport despite a number of tough measures brought in to stop them. Dispersal orders, wide spread shop bans and an increased presence of Police Community Support Officers has done little to weaken the continued tirade of terror which a group of youths have been inflicting on the resort in recent weeks. What started with a congregation of youths destroying part of Lord Street’s iconic Bandstand, snowballed into a series of events which

A youth attempts to taunt police officers during an incident in Birkdale. We have concealed the youth’s identity

include arson, verbal abuse and violence. In one instance, which was caught on camera by a town centre resident, a man is pelted with stones, spat at and verbally abused when

he challenged a group of youths on Eastbank Street. Speaking anonymously to The Champion, the resident who filmed the ordeal told our reporter: “I saw a group of five youths,

one with a push bike, trespassing behind Eastbank House. “This was just the latest in several such incidents. In the past they have stolen toys from the nursery and

strewn them around the area, damaged trees and attempted to gain entry into the private garages. Cars have also been damaged. Whenever they have been confronted in the past, either by myself or my neighbours, they are always abusive, threatening, spitting and have no regard for people or private property. “On this occasion I took my video camera out with me primarily as a deterrent but also to provide useful footage for the police if matters got out of hand, as they did. “The video ends when one of the youths pushed both myself and the camera away, breaking it in the process.

Councillor to step down at next election AINSDALE councillor Ted Hartill will not be standing for re-election in May, having announced his intent to retire from Sefton Local Authority. The former policeman and ardent Conservative politician has served in office since 2012 but after four years took the decision not to stand for re-election in his ward. A new candidate will now be put forward for the conservative party when the local elections are held in two months time. Speaking following the announcement

Councillor Hartill will not stand for re-election

Cllr Hartill said: “I have spent my entire working life in the service of the public in

one form or another. “I have now reached a time in my life when I feel it is right to step

down from formal public service and let someone younger stand in my place. “Therefore, I will not be standing for reelection in May although I will continue my local work within the community.” Conservative Group leader Terry Jones lauded the work of his colleague and long time friend, stating: “We would like to thank Ted for all is efforts and support. His contribution to the community will be missed. He was also a key figure in rebuilding our local party.”

Are you sitting on a million-pound Lotto ticket? One lucky Southport resident could be worth a fortune - but time is running out to collect winnings Report by Danielle Thompson A LUCKY Southport resident could be sitting on a fortune and not even realise it – as the National Lottery has revealed that a November millionpound winner has not yet handed their ticket in. National Lottery officials are 'speeding up' their search for the 'missing Lotto millionaire' who bought the winning ticket in Southport or West Lancashire for the Lotto draw on 21 November, 2015. A gold Aston Martin will be driven around Southport and West Lancashire tomorrow (Thursday 17 March) to remind residents to check their tickets for the winning code LIME 8233 8540. The gold sport scar will set off from Burscough Wharf at 1pm. To help jog Lotto players’ memories about what was happening around the date of the draw in question, football fans may remember that a host of

nearby football clubs were in action on Saturday, November 21: In the Premiership Liverpool handed out a 4-1 hammering to Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium, while in the Championship Preston lost 2-1 at home to Blackburn and in League One Wigan overcame Shrewsbury 1-0 at home. The winner only has until 19 May to claim their prize. d.thompson@champnews.com

Lottery windfall for groups NEWLY revealed figures show that more than £485,900 of National Lottery funding was awarded across Southport last year alone. Twelve Lottery grants were given out in the town during 2015 providing a vital boost to arts, sports and heritage

projects alongside community groups helping those most in need. A wide variety of local projects received National Lottery grants last year, including £9,900 to Phoenix Community and Youth Project to create a community cafe and charity shop for

the local community. A sum of £10,000 was also handed over to Larkfield School to develop a wildlife zone in the school grounds, while £10,000 was given to Fernley and Fleetwood Social Club to deliver IT training workshops for older people.

Heavens above! Just look at the view from church... From page 1 A steeplejack is a craftsman who scales buildings, chimneys and church steeples to carry out repairs or maintenance. Steeplejacks erect ladders on church spires, industrial chimneys, cooling towers, bell towers, clock towers, or any other high structure. Contractors are so high up in fact that they have an almost perfect 360 degree view of Southport Town Centre and can see far out to sea, as well as having clear views of Birkdale and Marshside, as our pictures show. The work on the Lord Street church is being carried out by expert steeplejacks company Warburtons from Blackburn. Their eye catching work has seen many passersby stop in their tracks to look on in a mix of awe, admiration and even terror as the contractors go about their work hundreds of feet above the town.

Yobs terrorise residents in town centre From page 1 “They then started to throw stones at me from the gravel borders and I retreated indoors making sure that the door closed behind me. “They then kicked the door in breaking the safety glass.” Since being uploaded to the internet, the footage has now been viewed over 6,000 times and Merseyside Police An unidentified youth say this is the latest throws a stone at a in a string of incidmember of the public ents they are investigating. A dispersal order was issued by Merseyside Police in an effort to curb the rising acts of antisocial behaviour, however acts of vandalism and abuse have continued unabated. In recent weeks windows of town centre shops including Monsoon and Just Looking have been broken – as well as rubbish bins being set alight. It follows an incident earlier this year where youths destroyed part of the Grade Listed wall in Kings Gardens and later destroyed part of Lord Street bandstand. Both Subway and KFC fast food outlets on Eastbank Street have banned groups of 16 year olds from congregating in their restaurants after 6pm.

Jailed for murder of ‘happy-go-lucky’ gran By our Court Reporter A SOUTHPORT man has been sentenced to life behind bars for the murder of a resort grandmother. Merseyeside Police have welcomed the sentencing of Ian Gordon for the murder of his partner Ann-Marie Cropper at their home in Southport in September 2015. Ann-Marie, 47, was found dead at the flat in Royal Terrace on September 10 after suffering significant injuries, including those to the head and chest. Her family said they wanted AnneMarie to be remembered as a ‘happy go lucky person.’ Gordon, 52, originally pleaded guilty to manslaughter on the first day of his trial but on Monday March 14 he changed his plea to guilty to murder. He was sentenced to life imprisonment, with a minimum of 20 years, at Liverpool Crown Court. Detective Inspector Cheryl Rhodes said: “Ann-Marie had 100 injuries when she died and nobody can begin

to imagine what she had to endure at the hands of Ian Gordon. "The fact that Gordon continued to deny being responsible for AnnMarie's murder meant that her family and friends were required to give evidence then forced to endure part of a trial and listen to details of the violence and abuse she suffered. “I would like to thank the family for their bravery and courage during the whole ordeal and also the professionalism of the officers involved in the case.

“The sentence Gordon was given is a reflection of the seriousness of this offence and his repeated offending. “Merseyside Police is committed to tackling domestic abuse in all its forms and we have dedicated and specially trained officers who respond to incidents of domestic abuse, investigate incidents and provide support to those in need. “Domestic abuse can happen to anyone at any time regardless of gender, age and sexuality. It is important for people to recognise when it is happen-

ing to them and that confidential support and advice is available to those that need it.” Following the trial, the family of Ann-Marie Cropper paid tribute to her. In a statement they said: "The family of Ann-Marie Cropper would like her to be remembered as a happy, go lucky person. “She was a loving daughter, sister, mother, grandmother and auntie who tried to never let life bring her down. We have lost a big part of our family. “Throughout the trial and hearing what Ian Gordon put her through has been absolutely heart-breaking and will be for some time to come. “She meant nothing to him, but meant everything to us. “She will be forever missed.” For more information on how to report domestic violence or to seek specialist support call the confidential 24-hour National Domestic Violence Helpline on 0808 2000 247. This helpline is free. People can also call Merseyside Police on 101 or if they are in immediate danger call 999.

Footage In another unsavoury episode, a video was uploaded to social media site Facebook, when a group of youths appear to taunt and goad police officers. (see picture front page) The footage shows them deliberately walking up to police officers and feigning acting suspiciously in order to grab the attention of officers. Neighbourhood Inspector Graham Fisher said: "We would always strongly encourage members of the public who suspect that a crime is in progress to contact police on 999 in the first instance, to allow us to resolve the situation in a safe and timely manner.

TOWN centre campaigners are asking Sefton Council to declare war on rogue landlords who allow their tenants to dump bulky items in the streets and over-fill their rubbish bins to a point where they cannot be collected. One of the campaigners, Councillor Tony Dawson, says that the Council needs to take action to stop the problem from spreading as those concerned see others getting away with it. The Council has responded, saying they remain vigilant in tackling fly tipping which they brand as ‘anti-social.’ Councillor Dawson told The Champion: “There have been fridges, mattresses, cookers and chairs on one street corner after another, and huge wheeliebins grossly-overfilled left festering for weeks on our town's streets. "We are only talking about a small minority of landlords – generally, people based hundreds of miles away, or even abroad. “They do not look after their properties and take no notice whatsoever if some of their tenants engage in the foulest anti-social behaviour which runs down our town and drives neighbours to despair. "The bed and breakfast and small hotel sector, concentrated in the Bath Street area, are being hit particularly hard by the effects of this uncontrolled behaviour.” A spokesperson for Sefton Council said: “We are currently working with residents, landlords and businesses in the area to remind them of their duties and to identify those responsible for the fly tipping.

Councillor Dawson is calling for a stronger crackdown on fly tipping

“Fly tipping is not only unsightly and anti-social; it can also be a serious risk to people’s health and can cause considerable damage to the environment. “We investigate reports of fly tipping within Sefton and prosecute offenders when we can. Conviction can result in a fine of up to £50,000 for any anyone found guilty of a flytipping offence. “If any residents have any concerns regarding fly tipping or wish to report an offence, they should contact us on 0300 140 0845 or report it via our website www.sefton.gov.uk.”

Adverts on roundabouts Cafe couple retire after 30 years in the business! to be removed, say council

THE OWNERS of Pinder’s Cafe have hung up their aprons after thirty years in the business. Eric and Bernadette Pinder who have run Pinder ’s Cafe on Bold Street for 28 years have finally called time on their town centre site, passing the reigns over to a new owner who will keep the Pinder name. Bernadette, 72, and Eric Pinder, 60, told The Champion: “We’ve been running Pinder ’s Cafe for 28 years but before that we had Pinder’s Pantry on Lord Street so altogether we’ve been in business for 30 years in Southport. “We have decided to hang up our aprons after such a long time and we have enjoyed nearly every minute of it. It’s been so long that we have too many people to thank and we would just like to extend a message to all our customers over the years just to say how much we will miss them and their company – we want to thank them all. “We have made lots of new friends throughout the years at Pinder’s. Their loyalty and support has been invaluable. “I’ll miss the people and all our customers but as far as the work is concerned, no, I won’t miss that one bit! New owner Pamela Hadfield said: “I am looking forward to the challenge of taking over Pinder’s cafe. I have run a number of establishments throughout the area in the past – it was something I really enjoyed so I wanted to get back into it!”

Report by Tom Martin A CONTROVERSIAL money-making scheme by Sefton Council to allow advertising signs to be placed on roundabouts will come to an end. The policy was first rolled out across the borough in 2014 but sparked concern from some motorists who claimed it was a distraction and posed a safety risk. On one particular roundabout on the busy A5038, in Bootle, there was a sign advertising a nearby pub and deals for cheap alcohol. Despite these objections, the local authority stuck by the policy until they carried out a recent review which concluded that “alternative options” will now be looked at. A report published by the council states: “The council recognises the importance and aesthetic impact of roundabouts in the landscape. “The council currently has in place a roundabout sponsorship contract that facilitates advertising and this allows signs to be erected with sponsors advertising via a marketing company. “A number of factors have been taken into account including the level

One of the signs in Bootle advertising a pub

of income and social value. “The review has identified an opportunity to work with other teams across the council, the community and local business with regard to roundabout and other area of sponsorship in the future. Once the contract is terminated, Sefton Council will continue to receive quarterly payments for 12 months as businesses who have agreed yearly sponsorship have signed up at varying times and will therefore conclude at different times. “The communications team will actively seek alternative income.”

Farmer hit with £59k ‘proceeds of crime’ order for storing caravans Report by Danielle Thompson

Timothy Edwards

TRADE & DIY

A TARLETON farmer who continued to store caravans on his land without planning permission has been told he must pay back £59,000 under a ‘Proceeds of Crime’ order. West Lancashire Borough Council took the unusual action against father of two Timothy Edwards, of Bannister House Farm on The Marshes Lane after being found guilty in February of failing to comply with planning enforcement notices. The Council served enforcement notices on the 55-year-old cattle farmer and his wife, but Mr Edwards, who says that he is following government policy by ‘diversifying’, believes he should be allowed to store the caravans to raise income to support his family, including his 23 year old daughter, who suffers from Asperger's Syndrome. Mr Edwards was ordered to pay £59,000 under the Proceeds of Crime Act as well as a £3,500 fine and £6,000 prosecution costs, while Mrs Edwards must pay a £500

JOHNSON • TOOL & HIRE CENTRE •

West Lancs Council say case against Tarleton man ‘sends out strong warning’ to land owners fine. They have until May 23 to pay – or he could face up to 304 days in jail. The Proceeds of Crime Act is used to recoup money raised through criminal activity against assets belonging to individual criminals – but a furious Mr Edwards believes the act is not applicable to him as the family were running their business, Bannister Caravan Storage from the site - and he claims the Proceeds of Crime Act can’t be used against what he claims is a business. He told The Champion: “If, in planning terms, you've done something for a number of years, it becomes legal. I've been storing static caravans for 10 years. They can't be seen and I've had no complaints from any neighbours. The council have decided to use me as an example and it's ridiculous.

“The government has advised farmers to diversify to survive - but the council is doing everything in it's power to stop me. By fining us such a huge amount, I will have to sell assets, like land, to pay - they are taking the tools of my trade. “We will appeal the decision.” A spokesman for West Lancs Borough Council said: “Mr Edwards pleaded guilty to planning offences brought by the Council and was represented at the Proceeds of Crime hearing by a barrister. “The proceedings were brought against Mr Edwards as an individual. Councillor Ian Moran, Leader of West Lancashire Borough Council, said: “This case sends out a strong warning that the Council takes breaches of planning control very seriously. “This is the first criminal confiscation order under the Proceeds of Crime Act that the Council has obtained and this should deter other land owners and businesses from seeking to profit from breaches of planning control. “The Council will take the strongest possible action against people who break the law.”

Residents angry over deaf school stalemate by Ollie Cowan

Dave at Quicksilver Music in Southport

Record store celebrates independence day ONE of Southport’s last independent music shops is getting ready to celebrate World Record Store Day. Quicksilver Music on Market Street in the resort will feature special guest appearances from The La’s band member Mike Badger who will perform a number of acoustic songs throughout the afternoon on Saturday April 16. The day is designed to commemorate the history and cultural impact of record stores in the UK and around the world – celebrating the best of independent music businesses Quicksilver owner Dave Thornley told The Champion: “Record Store Day is an annual event, held on the third Saturday of April each year to celebrate and support the culture of the independently owned record store. “The day brings together fans, artists, and thousands of independent record stores across the world. “I will be selling exclusive vinyl

releases on the day, which are only available to Independent Record Stores taking part in this event, and not available online. “The aim being to encourage people to visit and support their local record store and physically experience everything it has to offer. “I am the only shop in Southport taking part, and on the day I have special guest, ex 'Sounds' and current 'Record Collector' magazine writer Tim Peacock in store, signing copies, and reading excerpts from his latest book - 'The Rhythm and the Tide' about Liverpool's La's member Mike Badger. “We will also have Mike Badger from the La's playing some acoustic tunes at midday. Mike has strong links in music and art in Merseyside, so I'm thrilled he is making an appearance in my shop, before doing a local gig in Crosby in the evening. “Tim Peacock also lived in Southport for many years.”

BIRKDALE residents say they are dismayed at the lack of any discernable progress at the site of the former Birkdale Deaf School on Lancaster Road. The Champion reported in October 2015 how the Planning Inspectorate threw out an appeal by housing developers to turn the building into a housing complex after it was noted that they had not included any affordable accommodation in their plans. But five months later, there are no signs of a new application being submitted for the site and nearby residents

Local residents say they are dismayed by a lack of progress at the site

are growing weary of what they describe as increasing levels of vandalism and anti social behaviour. The building, which has been the victim of fire and vandalism in recent years, is a favoured spot for local

teenagers to congregate at night, given its semiremote location on Lancaster Road. The Champion understands that the building attracts a number of trespassers each year due to the fact that some of the derelict

Territorial regiment to hold reunion A GROUP of former Territorial Army members are set to hold a special reunion dinner in Southport next month to mark twelve years since they were mobilised to serve in the second gulf war. Members of the 165 Port Regiment TA Reserves, who were based in Southampton, are holding the dinner night at the Royal Clifton Hotel to commemorate the occasion they were ordered into service and mobilised to serve alongside the regular forces in the second Gulf War. A spokesperson for the regiment

told The Champion: “In January 2004, 165 Port Regiment were the only full regiment to be mobilised since World War Two. “All of us still hold very fond memories of their time within the regiment and we would love to see as many people as possible at the reunion.” The dinner takes place on April 2, with regiment members meeting on April 1 for drinks. Dress code for the meal is black tie and medals. For more information or to book your place contact jwr44@hotmail.co.uk

classrooms have been left in the same state as they were when they were occupied, with drawings, text books and coffee cups on tables giving an eerie abandoned appearance. Often teens will visit the building at night as a form of a dare given its spooky appearance – however this has led to acts of vandalism and in once case arson, which destroyed part of the main listed building. Now residents say

they are growing weary of any improvement to the site, which also features uncut grassland and a number of out buildings. Local resident Jacky Bliss told The Champion: “We are quite rightly fed up! “Our local community is being blighted by the lack of progress on the site and the anti-social behaviour that is regularly disturbing us. “Trespassing and antisocial behaviour on the site continues to be a problem. “On Sunday March 6 residents called the police following an incident involving three youths. “To date, the owners have not approached Sefton Council’s planning department with any new plans for the site which was purchased in 2004 and for which two planning applications have subsequently been rejected!”

BHS closure would be big loss to town says MP Pugh writes to store’s chief in bid to stave off threat to Chapel Street jobs RESORT MP John Pugh has written to the Chief Executive of British Home Stores asking if there is anything he can do to help save the ailing store. The Champion reported last week how the department store chain, which has a long standing site on Chapel Street, have written to their creditors and landlords asking for an urgent reduction in their rents in order to keep 40 of their stores going. Staff at BHS in Southport are still waiting to see what the future holds for the Chapel Street store after bosses once again threatened to close 40 stores across the UK if high rents are not reduced.

Report by Ollie Cowan affairs, is looking to cut its monthly rent payments by between 25% and 75% at 87 of its 164 stores. Now John Pugh MP has lent his support to the store, saying: “After seeing the article in The Champion I immediately wrote to

the Chief Executive of BHS to ask if there was anything I could do to help. “I am still awaiting a reply but I have offered to speak to the current landowners in an attempt to get them on board on a one-onone level so that we may be able to reduce the rents on the Chapel Street site. “It would be a big loss to the town and any reduction in rents would help massively.”

Restructure BHS say that unless various land owners agree to cut rent prices at a number of sites throughout mainland Britain, the store chain could face going into administration leading to the loss of thousands of jobs. The Champion, as previously revealed, understands that one of the stores under imminent threat is BHS on Chapel Street. Last week BHS entered into a company voluntary arrangement (CVA), a type of insolvency process, so it can restructure its liabilities. Bosses said the stores are being crippled by huge rents, and accountancy firm KPMG, who are looking after the company’s

YEAR SIX girls from Redgate Community Primary School recently visited Parliament to showcase their tech skills in front of 45 MPs, including Bill Esterson. The four girls participate in a TechFutureGirls Club, an after school club designed to encourage girls to keep engaged in IT. Only 17 per cent of tech specialist working in the UK are women, resulting in the scheme hitting a chord with many schools - with over 1000 nationwide registered. However, Redgate were one of only 11 schools represented on the Parliament visit.

A&E staff at hospital were wonderful - good on our NHS

Local Plan is the only way for a better future

Green belt will vanish

I would like, through the Champion, to express my sincere thanks to all those people who helped my husband when he fell top to bottom down the stairs. He is 86 years old and how he didn’t kill himself, I don’t know. First to thank are the three ambulance men who came at 2am and cared for him while transporting him to Southport Hospital. Next, I would like to thank the A&E staff who work so tirelessly and then all the staff and consultants who cared for him on wards 9A and 10A. And lastly the staff on Bluebell

At long last the Local Plan for Sefton has been passed. Maybe we can now get on with planning the future for our borough. For too long the NIMBYs of Sefton have selfishly stood in the way of progress for our region usually under the guise of ‘environmentalism.’ This has been nothing more than a mask for certain self centered Luddites who have more time on their hands than they know what to do with. These individuals should step back and take a look at the bigger picture. It’s the young people of Sefton who need homes and decent jobs these

I read recently almost 12,000 new homes are to be built in Sefton. This includes bulding on green belt land. Why is green belt being destroyed? Several months ago George Osborne said we have to get rid of all the ridiculous laws which protect the green belt and its wildlife so we can build across Britain. Green belt is vanishing across Britain– does anybody give a damn?

Lodge ward at Ormskirk Hospital. He was in hospital almost three weeks and his care was wonderful. Now we have the district nurses helping Harry and myself and I can’t thank everyone enough. While he was in A&E for quite a while, I just watched the staff – they were so very busy but they never stopped helping people. Truly wonderful. Good on our NHS, I say. Cath Whimpanny, Up Holland

same young people will be around long after we are gone I have noticed that many of the self appointed eco warriors who have been against the creation of new homes and jobs are all in support of the proposed wind farm planned for Lower Alt-side. We do not hear any talk of environmental vandalism - only how it is the only way for a sustainable future. Let’s look to the future for Sefton, one of the best places in the UK to live.

PICTURE of the week

S Raymond Southport

Rail stations need bigger car parks for commuters I would like to agree with Mr Platt in his letter of Wednesday, March 2 when he suggested that the use of motor vehicles is the most significant cause of air pollution. It is also essential that adequate car parking is provided at Formby and Freshfield Railway stations, particularly now that additional houses are being built thus increasing the local population. Walking instead of driving makes good sense and so does catching a train for longer journeys. The most carbon efficient means of travelling distance is to do so on a train with other people, not in a car. However, people now find it necessary to drive into Liverpool or Southport, for example, because existing local car parking provision at staions is inadequate during week day working time. And this is before the planned increase in population.

A magnificent display of colour at Southport’s Hesketh Park heralds the arrival of Spring. Picture by Martyn Snape.

How to make good Scouse Dear Team, this is my take on Scouse. 1. Boil sliced potatoes, carrots, turnips and leek in Pan until soft. 2. At the same time, grill pork sausages and then slice each sausage into three chunks. 3. Add sausage chunks to pan. 4. Mix gravy browning in cold water and add to pan. 5. Add pepper and a spoonful each of tomato puree and sage and onion to the pan. 6. Simmer till all the flavours come together, and serve. Delicious! Jim Finn, Crosby

Birkdale Station needs better train announcement system I am sure most people agree that we are very well served with the Northern Line Merseytravel service into Liverpool and beyond. But there seems to have been a change in procedure in the sense that there has been a significant reduction in the sound level that tells you when the train is about to enter the Birkdale Station. This has resulted in people in the waiting room quite literally rushing out as the train comes into the station as it stops towards the end of the platform. And it’s a particular problem for those with limited mobility, families with young children and those travelling onwards with luggage. There is also a difficulty with people who have impaired sight as they cannot read the signs giving arrival and departure times but could hear the bells. In addition, on the Southport side the waiting room whilst usually kept clean and tidy does need between 3

and 6 extra seats and I would hope that Merseytravel could provide these in the near future. The waiting rooms have been considerably enhanced by the initiative taken by Birkdale Civic Society under the chairmanship of Ralph Gregson and there are now some period photos on the walls. There are also a range of books that passengers bring and take so we have in effect a little local library service provided by well meaning volunteers and all credit is due to them. This proves - and there have been other examples in our town - that people will respond to community initiatives and I hope that we will all continue to recycle our books to help support and grow this scheme. Sir Ron Watson, By email

George Allen, By email

Resurfacing is a disaster I hope the elected members of Sefton Council can explain the waste of public funds used in the latest attempt to resurface the roads in Sefton has been a disaster. J Wardle, Birkdale

Heritage trails are launched to discover borough’s ‘wonderful historic environment’

Laptops might have a ‘brain’ but my old typewriter had a soul! WELL, it had to happen. I have upset the Gods of All Things Digital, big time. Hardly surprising perhaps since I have been railing against their infernal machines for quite some time. But what chance does a pygmy such as I have against electronic Gods? I have had my arguments with my digital TV - and more particularly with its digital recorder. And frankly we seem to have arrived at a sort or grudging compromise. Unhappily though, I have now learned the hard way that I cannot treat the laptop, up on which I rely to get my copy to the Champion, in quite the same cavalier fashion. Because of recent times it has bitten back, good style. It started in a small way by suddenly switching itself off from time to time, so forcing me to start whatever I was doing again. Then, having no doubt realised that I was still coping, the Digital Gods moved on to Stage Two. It began not to switch back on again - claiming that my (non-existent) computer had faults. Faults it would fix if I pressed the right key. I found that if I followed its instructions it would claim to have reset itself to the last time all was well (October 24th last year to be precise) and switch on again. Certainly it had reset something – it had reverted back to BST and I therefore had to reset the clock as well. Unhappily though, the remedy did nothing to stop its other antics. By trial and error I found that if I simply unplugged it from the mains, started it and when the battery flattened replace it again, all was well. Until yesterday. Then yes, although to outward appearances all seemed well, it simply refused point blank actually to type anything at all. Followers of the now very cross Gods have finally triumphed. The laptop is even now being examined to see what I have done unto it and whether it can be persuaded to do its job again; or if indeed it’s due for that great Digital scrapyard in the sky. So this ‘Dog’ column is being put in on a borrowed machine at Champion Towers. I'll let you know how the laptop has got on next week - I hope! Actually, I entered the simply electronic, as opposed to digital, world quite willingly many years ago when working for BT. My boss, the Eastern Region press officer and myself were allocated two brand-new, top-of-the-range, electronic typewriters, the very best of the breed and, in fact, superior to those possessed by the regional directors’ secretaries. And I loved my machine. Of course, it was ‘just’ a typewriter, it didn’t possess any ‘brain’ of its own. But it did have something missing from any digital contrivance - a soul! When you switched it on of a morning it made all sorts of whirring and clicking noises before settling down to do your bidding – and nothing more. It made absolutely no attempt to boss you about, to scold you or to blame you. It simply did its job and let you get on with yours. Those were the days, my friend.

HERITAGE Trails will be created in Southport and Waterloo to encourage residents and visitors to explore the historic environment around them. Showcasing a diverse range of sites and monuments, picked by local history groups and civic society, the trails will allow users to explore the borough and learn more about its past, unique features and individual architecture. It is hoped that it will help improve community understanding and participation in heritage work, developing links with local colleges to enhance conservation skills such as recording the historic environ-

ment. The trails, part of the Council’s Heritage at Risk project, is a collaborative effort between The Atkinson, Historic England, Sefton Council and various local community groups. Cllr Daren Veidman, Cabinet Member Planning and Building Control and Heritage Champion, said: “I am delighted to announce the launch of the Heritage Trails in Southport and Waterloo. “The walking information trails will increase awareness of our borough's fantastic history amongst residents and visitors alike, improving the local economy and developing our educational offer-

ing. Sefton borough is blessed with a wonderful history and projects such as this are vitally important in protecting our Conservation Areas at Risk. “I would like to thank all of those involved in helping this project come to fruition.” Karl Creaser from Historic England said: “We are really pleased to be supporting Sefton Council’s work on Conservation Areas at Risk and in promoting the tourist potential of Sefton. “We believe the collaborative approach, which involves working closely with the local authority, Friends Groups and Civic Societies

is the right way to strengthen ownership of the Heritage Trails.” The project has been funded through a capacity grant from Historic England along with match funding from Sefton Council. The Heritage Trails project will be launched at the Atkinson on Thursday, March 17 and will include a photography lecture by a Historic England specialist, who will be on hand to pass on any tips to members of the community.

Each year the St. James’s Place Foundation, through its local office allowance, grants a portion of monies raised through the annual fundraising efforts to local causes, charities and volunteer organisations in the communities where they are based. North West Cancer Research, which has a Southport-based fundraising committee were just one of about 300 groups nationwide to receive total funds in the order of £500,000.

The charity is one of the region’s biggest locally focused cancer research charities. It has committed to funding more than £12.3million worth of cancer research over the next five years, £8.8million of which will be spent in Liverpool. The charity relies on voluntary donations to allow it to continue its valuable work looking at increasing our understanding of cancer, its causes, diagnosis, treatment and prevention. North West Cancer Research was selected to receive the donation, after one of the firm’s associate partners met Olive Cutts, chair of the charities Southport fundraising committee. The charity then made a formal application to the St James’s Foundation. Tony Davies, associate partner at S. James’s Place Wealth Management, said: “The St James’s Place Foundation is delighted to support North West Cancer Research, with its continuing drive towards beating and eliminating cancer.” Mrs Cutts and Jennifer Higgs trusts and legacy officer at North West Cancer Research were presented with a cheque for the amount at Hillside Golf Club at the start of the month. Ms Higgs said: “On behalf of the charity I would like to thank the St James’s Place Foundation for selecting us to receive this grant, which will be used for cancer research purposes in Liverpool. “Cancer is one of the biggest killers in the region. The good news is that today, thanks to research, half of all people who are diagnosed with cancer survive, which is why every penny raised is so important.” The St James’s Place Foundation is the charitable arm of the St. James’s Place Wealth Management Group. It has been supporting charitable causes since 1992, making a positive and lasting difference to people’s lives by awarding grants to charities registered in the UK

Councillors jump for joy as waterfront gym plan is axed ‘We’re not that desperate to get these units filled’

COUNCILLORS battling to defend Southport’s seafront area are celebrating a victory for the right of people to enjoy the resort’s marine lake... and for the Victoria Leisure Club to continue to serve its members, writes OLLIE COWAN Developers planning to put a new gym into the Waterside shopping site on the Promenade by the Casino, had been pressing for customers of the planned gym to be provided with free car parking by the side of the marine lake where thousands of people every year watch the swans and sailing boats. However, plans for both the gym and the additional car park have now been withdrawn according to Sefton Council’s Planning Department.

And after the latest turn of events, local councillor Tony Dawson has slammed the developers for submitting the proposals in the first place. Councillor Dawson said: “The developers appeared to think we were so desperate to get these units filled that we would sacrifice virtually anything.

totally took on board their concerns which I represented not only to the planning committee but to the council as owner of the land around the lake.� Councillor Pat Keith added: “I am all for new facilities which can help people stay fit but there should be no favouritism. “The most popular way of Southport people staying fit is for them to stroll up and down Lord Street and around the Marine Lake and Kings Gardens. “They do not want to be walking through a car park. “I am pleased that this proposal has now been withdrawn. At the same time, I hope that the Council will redouble its efforts to get suitable shops into the Waterside complex.�

“This apparently included our valuable heritage walkways around the marine lake. They also seemed to think that customers of their gym should be given favourable treatment over those who go to the gym in the Victoria Baths building across the road. “Parking is already quite a problem for these customers and I am working to see if we can get an improvement. This would have been unfair competition if the new gym had been given favourable treatment. The free parking might have been used as a means to entice members away from Victoria to the new gym. “Councillor Sue McGuire and I met with the Victoria Leisure Club who petitioned against this proposal. We

Plea to restore ‘depressing’ state of lake railings COUNCILLORS in Southport are pushing for the next phase of a continued restoration of the area around Marine Lake. Cambridge ward representative Pat Keith, who successfully led the initiative for the restoration of the promenade shelters, has now made the railings surrounding the lake a major priority. Weather erosion over the years along with general wear and tear have led to the railings becoming worn down and looking in a sorry state. Councillor Keith told The Champion: “It’s depressing to see the railings standing like a rusting tiara against the back‘They are drop of Southport’s Marine Lake which is standing like a one of the largest manrusting tiara’ made leisure pursuit lakes in England. “It would be wonderful to see them returned to their full glory. Councillor Sue McGuire added: “We have reopened talks with council officers which began four years ago about the feasibility of new railing being erected. I will also be raising this issue with Sefton’s Chief executive. “The dilapidated railings detract from the magnificent work carried out along the promenade and we are hopeful the money will be found.�

The new bar is set to open on Seabank Road

Rum bar plan gets green light PLANNING officials have given the green light to a new rum and craft cider bar on Seabank Road. The Champion reported earlier this year how bosses at popular Southport restaurant, Auberge, wanted to open a craft cider and rum bar in the resort. Now plans have been approved by the Council’s planning department to change the use of a former hairdressing salon into a new bar and to extend the site to compliment the existing Auberge Restaurant and neighbouring Sacre Bleu bar – all owned and run by proprietor Russel Jones. Council bosses agreed to the scheme which would currently replace the now vacant unit which had, until late 2015, been occupied as a hairdressing salon. The craft cider and rum bar would become the second speciality bar to open at the north end of Lord Street in the last six months, following the launch of

Second speciality venue to open at north end of Lord Street area the nearby Peaky Blinders bar. A spokesperson for Architects RAL Limited, who are managing the proposals, said: “RAL Architects Limited have been appointed by Russel Jones to produce a scheme for an extension to an existing retail unit with a proposed change of use. There is a proposed change of use from class A1 to A4 “The extension provides a disabled toilet to serve the change of use. The intended use of the unit is as a craft cider and rum bar, and will compliment the applicants neighbouring successful businesses.”

Our Lady of Lourdes to host 80th birthday celebrations A SOUTHPORT school is celebrating a landmark birthday this month and staff are eager to reunite former pupils to celebrate the achievement. Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Nursery and Primary School, in Birkdale is celebrating its 80th

birthday – the school was first opened during the Academic year of 1935-1936. Head Teacher Mrs Hillsdon said: “As this is a very special year for us, we would like to invite any past pupils and their families to join in with one of

the school’s preparations for Easter which is a performance of ‘The Passion’. “This is a re-enactment of the ‘Stations of the Cross’ in the form of a mime which a class of Year 4 children will present. This has been a tradition for

many years. The performance will be held at Our Lady of Lourdes Church, Arundel Road, on Wednesday March 23. “It will commence at 2.00pm and should finish at approximately 2.45pm. We hope all can come along.”

Fire and ambulance crews can attend emergency cardiac arrest calls

until an NWAS resource is in attendance. Under the new scheme MF&RS will be contacted when a suspected cardiac arrest is reported near to a fire station. The added advantage to dispatching fire crews, is their ability to respond on blue lights therefore arriving more quickly to a situation where literally every second can mean the difference between life and death. Fire crews will be dispatched at the same time as an ambulance. Deputy Chief Fire Officer Phil Garrigan of Merseyside Fire & Rescue Service said: “Firefighters attending a cardiac arrest are equipped with a trauma bag containing resuscitation equipment, a first aid kit and a defibrillator. “Only firefighters who have received the appropriate training and are fully qualified to use this equipment will administer treatment to people who have suffered cardiac arrest. This is in addition to the first aid training all firefighters receive.”

FIRE Fighters will soon be helping to deliver life-saving treatment for cardiac arrest patients in partnership with North West Ambulance Service. When a person dials 999 to report a suspected cardiac arrest, both North West Ambulance and Merseyside Fire and Rescue will respond and whoever reaches the casualty first will start providing life-saving treatment. Once the ambulance crew arrives, advanced life support will commence and the patient will be handed into the care of NWAS. Similar schemes launched in Lancashire and Greater Manchester in 2015 have proved to be very successful. There will be no change to the system of assigning and sending ambulances and medical staff to emergencies. Suspected cardiac arrests are categorised as Red 1 calls, with a national target of eight minutes to respond for 75 per cent of cases - regardless of who reaches the scene first, the clock won’t be stopped

Council to join national campaign to tackle child abuse

CASH

PAID FOR

SEFTON Council is supporting the national campaign ‘Together, We Can Tackle Child Abuse’ which encourages everyone to help safeguard and protect children. The campaign stresses that everyone has a role to play in protecting children and young people from child abuse and neglect. Teachers, social workers, health professionals and the police all play a part in safeguarding and protecting children, but the public has an important role to play too. In 2014/15, more than 400,000 children in England were supported because someone noticed they needed help. Most people find the decision to report child abuse a difficult one. They worry about overreacting or

"Children and families can be helped earlier with preventative support; if more of us shared our concerns with our local children’s social care teams.” Dwayne Johnson, Sefton Council's Director of Social Care & Health added: “A big worry people have is that someone will find out they have made a report, but this is unlikely to happen as you can make the call anonymously, although most people do give their details. “Every child deserves to be protected and it is better to be safe than sorry.” l If you are concerned that a child is being harmed, neglect or abused go to www. sef ton.gov.uk/reportachildatrisk

These fears are understandable, but unfounded, says a campaign spokesperson who points out that you don’t need to be absolutely certain of what you’ve seen or heard to call your local children’s social care team. Information is usually gathered from many sources, and your report would form one part of a bigger picture. Cllr John Joseph Kelley, Sefton Council's Cabinet Member for Children, Schools and Safeguarding said: “The public are in a unique position to spot concerns of abuse and neglect among children and young people they have

A STUDENT nurse from Southport has launched a fundraising campaign to help her achieve a long-held dream to do volunteer work at a hospital in Sri Lanka. Emily Cropper has been busy trying to raise the £1,600 needed to help pay for her trip to the island republic in June, where she would volunteer her nursing services at the Kandy teaching hospital – the second largest hospital in the country. The third year Edge Hill University Adult Nursing student said thatt to work there would a be ‘a dream come true.’ Emily, 20, said: “I have always wanted to be a nurse since I was a little girl. “I come from a family of nurses. My mum, auntie and uncle are nurses and my cousin is a student nurse too. “I also do community care as a part time job when I have days off from placement or university.

Emily wants to realise her dream of being a nurse

Nursing is something I really enjoy and I'm hoping to work at Southport hospital when I'm qualified. “I’m currently fundraising to try and get enough money so I can volunteer at a hospital in Sri Lanka for a month in June 2016 – while there I would provide care and treatment to those who are in need in a less fortunate country. “The funds are going to enable me to work voluntary in the General Teaching Hospital in Kandy, Sri Lanka, where I will be working in the Theatre and A&E departments dealing with trauma and emergency care.

“This experience will not only help me gain vital experience formy future career and help me live my dream of helping others, but provide much needed hands on experience and share my nursing knowledgeIhave gained so far in my training.” “I am going to Kandy in Sri Lanka for four weeks in June to July 2016 to work voluntary in the general teaching hospital. “We chose to go to Sri Lanka as we wanted to experience nursing in a second world country but one which has a similar health care system to the NHS as they provide free care to everyone. “Supplies are basic in the hospital that I'll be working in and I have to take my own gloves and hand sanitiser to use. “I think my experience would be better in a country that needs some hands on help rather than somewhere like America or Australia were a lot of qualified nurses go. “We are hosting a race night on April 29 at the Masonic hall which has sold out – on the night we have horse races, a raffle and a stand up bingo which some local companies have helped by donating some prizes.

NEW FACE FOR NEW GENERATION SOUTHPORT LAW FIRM Magnus Legal is the new face of Bromiley Holcroft Solicitors, an independent family run solicitors firm that has been based in Southport for 25 years. The business was set up by Southport resident Martin Holcroft in 1988 when it was just him in a single office in Lytham St Annes. In 1991 Martin moved the business back to his home town of Southport. Bromiley Holcroft built up a reputation as one of the few ‘good guys’ in the personal injury world looking after seriously injured clients, particularly motorcyclists. At its peak Bromiley Holcroft dealt with over 300 cases per month employing over 60 local people. The recent and future changes to the law to try and save insurance companies money by clamping down on fraudulent personal injury claims means that many genuine personal injury solicitors are also likely to be a thing of the past. But the Southport family business is not giving up. Emma and John, the next generation in the Holcroft family have stepped up with their own fresh approach, paving the way for the future of the business. Magnus Legal are now offering clients the full range of legal services.

Martin: “I have got to the age where I want to take more of a back seat. My children have always worked in the firm and I am pleased that they see it as their future and want to carry it on. They are young, they have the energy and determination and new and modern ideas.” It is rare for businesses to be kept in families nowadays, particularly in the legal sector. Although Martin is still in the background providing his advice and experience, Emma and John are taking the reigns and taking the business to new heights.

a proper thorough service and like every other service now, they want the matter to be dealt with efficiently, want to know exactly what it is going to cost, they want it to be convenient and to be communicated with all the way through. These are areas that many traditional solicitors lack in but it is what we are homing in on”.

Emma: “We have always been run more as a business than a traditional old fashioned solicitor’s practice and we are bringing this approach to all areas of law. We know that people don’t want to have to use a solicitor but when they do, they expect

John: “It is a big challenge to take on but there is a lot of experience in the business. Mixed with our own modern approach, use of technology and strong customer focus we are excited to see what the future holds”

Iconic land speed car returns to resort sands Classic Sunbeam Tiger has been on display at the Atkinson this week ahead of a nostalgic visit to Ainsdale beach later today...

We’ve got it covered! Let us target your audience, delivering your leaflets from only £16.25 per 1,000 homes. For a reliable and cost effective solution for your leaflet distribution project, talk to the Champions on 01704 392 345

A RECORD-BREAKING classic car is to return to the Southport coastline where it once set a land speed record. In March 1926, Sir Henry Segrave drove his Sunbeam Tiger on Southport beach, reaching a top speed of 152.33 mph. The contemporary and racing rival of Sir Malcolm Campbell captured the world record and became the fastest man on earth. To commemorate the occasion, his record-breaking four-litre engined car, which has not been on public view since 2007,has returned to the northern resort for the first time. The bright red super car will complete a triumphant sprint along Ainsdale beach on Wednesday, March 16 – 90 years to the day after the world record was recorded. It will be joined on the sands by at least 20 vehicles driven by members of the Sunbeam Talbot Darracq Register vintage car club. All were built before 1935. A vintage motorcade will then travel through the town, before parking up outside museum and cultural centre The Atkinson. Segrave’s Tiger will then be joined

Report by Henry James by a Sunbeam Cub, a 1924 racing car with a smaller two-litre engine, which was also driven by Segrave. The historic pair are on display in the foyer of The Atkinson until Sunday, March 20 as part of the Land Speed Record 90thAnniversary. The week-long event, organised by The Atkinson and partners including the Aintree Circuit Club, celebrates Southport’s pivotal role in racing history. Emma Anderson, director at The Atkinson said: “The 1920s were a time of intense rivalry in motor racing. Technology and engineering rapidly evolved to match to remarkable bravery and ambition of racing drivers across Europe and America, battling to break speed records on land and water. The rivalry between Sir Malcolm Campbell, father of Donald, and Sir Henry Segrave is the stuff of legend. “With the Land Speed Record 90thAnniversary, we will celebrate these remarkable achievements and remember the glamour of motor

racing and the heyday of Southport in the 1920s.” An afternoon of talks and an anniversary dinner in The Atkinson Studio will follow the morning’s activities on the beach. Other events at The Atkinson include an interactive Meet Sir Henry Segrave performance, car-themed arts activities for children (Sat 19 and Sun, March 20, 11am-4pm, free), and

racing and 1920s-themed film screenings. Segrave artifacts and memorabilia, including many exclusive loan items, will be on display at The Atkinson throughout the festival week.

So whether you’re planning to stay for business or pleasure you’ll be well catered for. As if dining in splendour and staying in style isn’t enough, they’re also able to kick-starting the day for residents and non-residents alike by offering a breakfast menu that’s fit for a King (or Queen for that matter!), so whether you fancy a full cooked breakfast, a gourmet coffee on the go, a healthy bowl of organic porridge or you’d like to hold a breakfast meeting in beautiful surroundings of the new conference room, The Bold Hotel is the place to go with breakfast being served from 09:00am every day. The team are really looking forward to the next stage of their incredible journey and are ready to welcome you for breakfast, lunch, dinner or a room for the night whenever you are!

Illegal Eagles to make a flying visit to theatre LONG established as the World’s Official No.1 Eagles’ tribute, The Illegal Eagles make a return to Southport Theatre this Saturday (March 19). Promising more of their tight harmonies, acute attention to detail and showmanship, this is not just a night for fans of the Eagles, but for those of great music and musicianship. The band’s ability to recreate the distinctive sound of the Eagles, has won them mass acclaim on an international level. Founder Phil Aldridge leads the show into its third decade shoulder to shoulder with Al Vosper, Keith Atack, Garreth Hicklin,

Greg Webb and brand new bass player and lead vocalist, Trev Newnham. Now with four lead vocalists, the 2016 production introduces a new repertoire of songs, complementing the ever-present classics such as: New Kid in Town, Tequila Sunrise, Hotel California, Take It Easy, Lyin’ Eyes, Life in the Fast Lane, Take it to the Limit, and many more. This latest production also features a special tribute to the late Glenn Frey, one of the original founding members of the Eagles. For more information log on to www.atgtickets.com/southport

Prenger to star in classic musical ANDREW Lloyd Webber and Don Black’s classic musical Tell Me On A Sunday starring Jodie Prenger, is coming to the Liverpool Empire Theatre on Monday, May 23. The show charts the romantic misadventures of a young English girl in New York in the heady days of the 1980’s. Brimming with optimism, she seeks success and love. But as she weaves her way through the maze of the city and her own anxieties, frustrations and heartaches she begins to wonder whether she's been looking for love in all the wrong places. This iconic musical, with an original score, features the chart-topping Take That Look Off Your Face and the title track Tell Me On A Sunday. Jodie Prenger is probably best known for winning the role of Nancy in Cameron Mackintosh’s West End production of Oliver! through the BBC television series I’d Do Anything. During her run in the show at the Theatre Royal Drury Lane she received both critical and public acclaim for her portrayal of the role.

MOTORS

Reckless minority ruining it for all BIKERS are more us than them. Devotees of all things two-wheeled are genuinely into their machinery, they’ll meet up with likeminded folk at shows and they appreciate a journey is about so much more than the destination. They also know something I’ve rarely experienced as a car nut. The stigma of being tarred with one broad sweep of a an angry community’s brush, simply because a few idiots are going out there and ruining it for everyone else. That’s the pain I came away with after venturing out of Champion-land and reading one of the North Wales newspapers, in which frustrated farmers are teaming up with the local bobbies to condemn just about anyone who even thinks driving a certain trio of roads in the Conwy countryside for enjoyment’s sake. The sort of heavy-handed policing traditionally reserved for hedonists with Honda Fireblades and Suzuki Hayabusas is now being mooted for people with hot hatchbacks and Caterhams. Not without justification, mind; North Wales Police is apparently getting a bit fed up with groups of cars doing upwards of 90mph on their home turf! All of which leaves me a tad pensive. I am one of the very people some of those farmers would probably like to see banned – I’ve driven the roads in question on many occasions in my Minis and Mazda MX-5s for no good reason other than to enjoy them. It is 30 miles of some of Britain’s most enjoyable motoring, where you can appreciate all the little nuances of the suspension set up and the smileinducing way the steering chats excitedly to you through the corners. Shocking Yet here’s the shocking thing - you can do all of that without breaking the 60mph speed limit. The real problem’s when you get thrillseekers tearing past in even quicker bits of kit, which is exactly what happened a few years ago on a petrolhead outing a few mates and I were on. My MX-5, a Ford Racing Puma, a Volkswagen Polo G40 and a Metro GTi aren’t exactly slouches – yet all four of our cars were overtaken by a Porsche Boxster S, a Mini Cooper Works GP and a tuned Civic Type R. We were doing 60mph, but for this trio the limit just wasn’t enough. I dread the idea of a 60mph road that can be enjoyed safely (and legally) being forced down to 40mph because of the idiots who insist on taking it at 100mph – and chances are they’ll continue doing that speed anyway. I understand how bikers feel, because a reckless minority are ruining it for every-

one else who loves great cars and wonderful roads. Chances are if you’re reading The Champion that you’re not a Welsh farmer, but if you are then please appreciate that 99% of us petrolheads are just normal, law-abiding people who like cars. If you’re someone who’s tempted to belt down the A543 at 100mph then sell the Honda S2000 and get something you’ll enjoy at normal speeds. You’ll be doing the rest of us all a massive favour.

Three goal lead Port without a thrown away in manager again final 16 minutes as Maamria Southport 3 Welling United 3

Southport relinquished a three goal lead in the final sixteen minutes on Saturday, allowing relegation favourites Welling United to take a share of the points. In a whirlwind start, Southport nearly scored twice in the first 20 minutes, Barney Williams clearing off the line, first from a Mark O’Brien header after seven minutes and then from a Louis Almond effort ten minutes later. A fierce drive from Gary Jones was saved by Marek Rodak and the pressure finally paid off in the 37th minute when Mike Phenix headed in a cross from Andy Wright to give his side the lead. Two minutes later, Southport in action on Saturday. Welling could have been Pictures by Julia Urwin level when they were awarded a penalty after Max three goals.

calls it a day after 4 months Report by Ron Ellis DINO Maamria has stepped down as manager of Southport due to “family and travel reasons” in a move which has shocked fans. Maamria, 44, took charge in November 2015 after former boss Paul Carden left by mutual consent. The side are currently 17th in the table, but eight points above the relegation zone with eight games left to play. Maamria had continued to live in Stevenage throughout his time at the club and it is believed that this is one of the key reasons why he decided to leave. A spokesperson for Southport FC said: “Dino Maamria has left Southport FC, citing personal and travel reasons behind his departure. “We would like to thank Dino for his efforts during his successful spell in charge and wish him the best in the future." After winning four consecutive home matches following his appointment in November, Southport are yet to win at Haig Avenue since the beginning of January. The Sandgrounders are without a

win in their last five home games and let a 3-0 lead slip in Saturday's 3-3 draw with struggling Welling United. Maamria's record during his tenure works out at 1.47 points per game only Gary Brabin of the past seven managers has achieved a better average. However, it is noticeable that his record over the last 12 games, which produced only one win, is almost identical to that of Paul Carden who won just two of his last 13 games.

With only eight games left, the club are virtually safe from relegation, mainly due to the poor form of the teams below them, five of whom they have still to play. Maamria's successor has still to be announced. Maamria, born in Tunisia, enjoyed a 20-year playing career from 19922002 in which he made 303 club appearances and scored 92 goals He played for Southport on two separate occasions in 2000 and 2006, both times on loan from other clubs.

Fans’ coach to Torquay cancelled as too few takers SUPPORTERS’ group Trust in Yellow will not be able to run a coach to the match at Torquay United next weekend as only 11 bookings have been received. However, there are over 30 bookings so far on the coach to Atrincham on Easter Monday,

March 28, so this will definitely be running. The fare to Altrincham is £9 for members and £12 for nonmembers, which is the Trust's cheapest-ever price for the coach to this fixture. To book, text Bill Sloan on 07952 056385.
