Southport will be operating cashless turnstiles for the fixtures, so those wishing to attend Everton's U23 games will have to visit the Club Shop on Haig Avenue for a ticket before entering through the Blowick End turnstiles further down the road.

Admission prices for the games are £5 Adults, £3 Concessions and U11s go free; with Season Ticket Holders from both Southport and Everton receiving complimentary admission – to gain entry these fans just have to show their season ticket at the turnstile.

The pitch at Haig Avenue has often been a water-logged cabbage patch and not fit to help our young lads learn their trade. It is much worse than the pitches at Finch Farm.

What happened to the plan, announced by the manager of Belgium no less, to play U23 games at Finch Farm?

I thought a lot of money had been spent on Finch Farm to expand it? This has been done now hasn’t it? Weren’t they supposed to be creating a mini stadium there? Anyone know what got built and what didn’t?
