Having spent the morning delivering Richard Hands and I sneaked off to Haig Ave to see Soutport defeat King's Lynn. The crowd was about 900 and they saw Southport dominate the first half, the they went to sleep for most of the second half (the crowd and the players) up until the game got a little physical and then they woke up.
The crowd soon noticed that we had a female running the line on the KGV side. Apart from namiing her Melissa -who knows why?-she endure remarkably little barracking. Behind us one Dad-no doubt showing off to his primary school kid- started asking what she knew about football-well his son told him firmly that she was better than many of the men we'd seen and he should stop being sexist!
