TRUST IN YELLOW MEMBERSHIPS

Ahead of the coming season, Trust in Yellow is looking to recruit new members and renew existing memberships.

About to enter a ninth season since forming in 2006, the Trust continues to work on behalf of Southport supporters and represent the interests of fans and members alike.

From encouraging greater supporter-involvement by arranging events such as the recent Meet the Manager with Martin Foyle, the Trust also meets to discuss issues with representatives from the club’s board and has a growing involvement in the community.

In every season since it was formed, the Trust has run coach travel to the majority of Southport’s away matches. The Trust will provide travel to every match where there is enough demand, and having taken steps to arrange a smaller coach when needed, fans should again be able to travel to most away games this campaign.

Last season, the Trust sponsored the club’s primary schools coaching initiative, providing local children with coaching from first-team players as part of a commitment to the community.

And with the campaign to get new floodlights progressing, the Trust is looking forward to pursuing new ideas and fresh initiatives as the season develops.

Members are the very fabric of the Trust and memberships are essential to ensuring the Trust continues to run successfully.

In order to give more fans the chance to discuss what the Trust does, there will be a table set up outside the Jack Carr end of the ground ahead of the opening match of the season against Forest Green Rovers.

So if want to talk about Trust matters or have any suggestions about the Trust going forward, please come and visit the table.

A leaflet containing the latest monthly members’ newsletter will also be distributed, providing fans with more information about what the Trust does. The leaflet is available to download HERE.

A range of memberships are available and run for 12 months. An adult membership costs £10, under 16s are £5, a family is £20 and a corporate membership is £100.

Membership forms will be available from the table on Saturday, or fans can join online HERE.

And if you’re not at the Forest Green game, the Trust office, located next to the club shop, is open at every home game, so please come and see us.

TRAVEL WITH THE TRUST THIS SEASON

Once again this season, Trust in Yellow will be looking to arrange coach travel to as many of Southport's away matches as possible.

The Trust is in its eighth year of providing travel to Southport’s matches on the road and in that time coaches have run to the majority of fixtures.

Every year, the Trust's coach prices are put out to tender to local companies so the season's travel can be arranged for the cheapest available prices.

It is usually the case that demand is based largely on results on the pitch and unfortunately there often aren't enough bookings to fill a coach.

As a result, the coach fares are priced on a break-even basis of 30 supporters travelling and a discount may apply if there are more than that number. There is also a £3 reduction for paying in advance.

For the longer-distance trips, the fact that two drivers are needed is reflected in the price.

This season, in order to try and run travel when there wouldn’t otherwise be enough bookings to break even, the Trust will be looking to run a smaller coach if the demand is there.

All Trust members receive a £5 discount on every coach trip. Therefore, if you are not a member, it will not take long to get back your £10 membership fee!

In a change to the policy in recent seasons, under 16s can travel for half of the advertised price if accompanied by an adult member.
