Southport Football Club have reached an agreement with Chequer Properties Ltd that will see the club use Stormy Corner in Skelmersdale as our main training facility until the end of the season.

Since the beginning of the season, we have used our own pitch, KGV, Edge Hill University and JMO in Skelmersdale as training locations. This has been based on availability to meet our training schedule and we have thus far been unable to secure a permanent training base that fulfills all our needs. There is a significant shortage of suitable grass training facilities in the area which would meet our training schedule.

Supporters will be aware that the board does have plans to construct our own training facilities but this will not be a quick or easy process. In recent weeks the Skelmersdale football ground was identified as a good fit for Southport FC and this deal ensures Stormy Corner’s continued usage as a sporting facility.

Southport FC wish Skelmersdale United all the best for the future.
