PLEASE SUPPORT PORT FAN BEN HIGHTON IN SOUTHPORT HALF MARATHON

Southport supporter Ben Highton will be running the Southport half-marathon this summer to raise funds for Trust in Yellow.

Ben will be competing in the 13.1-mile race around the town on Sunday July 5 and has very kindly agreed to donate his sponsorship money to the Trust.

Having started running two years ago, this will be Ben's first organised race and he is set to be one of the youngest participants involved.

A Southport supporter since season 2002/03, Ben is a programme seller at home matches and travels the length and breadth of the country to support Southport at the vast majority of away games.

Recently, Ben has increased his training runs up to ten miles and his target is to complete the half-marathon within two hours.

Starting at 9am, the route begins in Victoria Park before heading south along the Coastal Road, returning along Marine Drive and into Fairway along the Promenade.

The race then moves around the back of the Southport Theatre & Convention Centre, under the pier and through Kings Gardens. It goes around the Marine Lake and under the pier again before returning to Marine Drive and the pier once more before going left at the Weld Road roundabout to return for a finish in Victoria Park.

Ben has been a supporter of the Trust from the start and we are very grateful to him for generously pledging his sponsorship money to us.

Please support Ben as he prepares for the half-marathon by making a donation. You can e-mail fans@trustinyellow.com or donate through PayPal by clicking on donate above and entering Ben's name in the comments box.

MINUTES OF BOARD MEETING - TUESDAY 5TH MAY

1. Apologies for absence

Katrina, Bill

2. Minutes of last meeting and matters arising

The recent awards evening was a great success and was very well received by both the club and supporters. A special thanks go to MC Noel and to Rob Urwin for co-ordinating the evening. It is hoped that this will be the start of improved relations between the Trust and the club.

3. Treasurer's Report

The Trust’s current available funds stands at £28,728.87. Membership of Supporters Direct for 2015 will be renewed at a cost of £100 and all outstanding monies have now been paid to Diabetes UK. Entry to play in the Fans’ Team at the Reunion has raised £555 to date.

4. Membership

There have been two new adult members and one new junior member join since the last meeting in what is a quiet time of the year for memberships.

5. Future Trust Events

The 04/05 Reunion will go ahead on Sunday 2nd August with a 2pm kickoff. James Treadwell of Moore & Smalley has very kindly agreed to sponsor the event which will include a buffet and a quiz in the Grandstand Bar after the game. A ticket for the buffet & quiz will cost £5 with family tickets also being available. A DVD and programme will also be produced. Most players from the 04/05 squad have confirmed attendance and the manager's position will be auctioned off. The fans' team will be managed by Richard Brodie and with over half not being Trust members it was agreed to offer some sort of incentive to encourage them to join.

The cricket match against Churchtown CC in memory of Phil will take place on Sunday July 26th starting at 1.30pm at The Rookery. Richard Brodie will play for the supporters' team with Churchtown happy to mix the teams if necessary.

The Trust's 10th anniversary celebrations will include a competition to design a new badge aimed at all schools in the area.

6. Other Trust activities

A complete review of coach travel will take place at the next meeting with all members encouraged to attend and put forward their opinions of how things can be improved. Loss on the coaches from 31st January 2015 is estimated to be £700-£750 which is completely unsustainable. It was agreed that the pricing structure will be simplified next season with a set price being set rather than 'in advance,' 'on the day' etc.

Next match signs for the season just gone cost around £600 and ways to improve their effectiveness were discussed. It was agreed that they do need to be bigger and perhaps a poster would be a better option. The club will be contacted to assess the value they put in the signs.

The Memorial wall will include bricks commemorating both Phil and Sally Devine when it is constructed. A piece is being put together about Ben Highton running the Southport Half Marathon which will be promoted on all media platforms.

7. Relations with the club

A series of questions will be compiled to ask at the club's AGM. It is hoped that the installation of the new floodlights will be imminent.

8. Any other business

The Supporters Direct Members Day takes place on Friday 17th July. Southport Fans team are planning a match against Chester Fans team and have very kindly offered to donate all proceeds to the Trust. The Webshop made £116 to the end of the year.

9. Next meetings

Tuesday 9th June – Members

Tuesday 23rd June - Board
