Peter Hesketh - former club chairman

It is with great regret that South Liverpool FC learned of the passing of our former Club chairman Peter Hesketh, 66, who died at the end of February 2021. 

 

Peter had been associated with our club for well over 50 years. Starting as young fan accompanying his father, John, to games in the mid 1960’s. Over the next 20 years he would be instrumental in keeping the club alive against the odds of little money and bouts of vandalism that at times would have swamped others.

 

From the Youth Supporters Club onto the adult section, the dwindling fortunes of the club saw him, along with other twenty somethings promoted to the main Board of Director’s in 1977. By 1979 he was Club Chairman, a post he held until 1983. He was the youngest semi-professional club chairman as 24, bringing respect and stability back to the struggling club, aligned on the playing side by his astute appointment of seasoned non-leaguer, Russell Perkins as manager. 

 

Peter’s drive in keeping our club alive, was during what was the toughest of financial times, it ensured our survival and that our name lives on today.

 

After nearly five years at the helm, he turned to focus on his thriving insurance business, remaining a regular visitor to the club, as well as a club sponsor for the next 35 years!

 

An Anfield regular and lover of the game, he was still playing for South’s Walking Football Team alongside other long serving club officials and past club players.  

 

All at South pass on our sincere condolences to wife Moira and his family at this sad time.

The MacKenzie Whisky Award was made before the league game at Canal Street Runcorn home of the champions elect Runcorn. The game saw South win 3 -2 in an epic game which Peter recalled as one the proudest days of his time as chair and as South fan.

Season 2020/21 update

We submitted our application to join the NWCFL for season 2020/21.  The English FA instructed the 2019/20 league season be terminated and that there will be no promotion or relegation between leagues at our level. South remain in the West Cheshire League in 2020/21 and will resubmit our application. Our first addition at The Hub was the covered terrace for 100 people installed in March 2020. Changing room work is also complete and the new 75 seater stand was hoisted into position in early June. All other work was finished quickly and new wind screens added in September all to be Step 6 ready. The new stand was generously donated by G&W (UK) to whom we are incredibly grateful for this gesture. Thanks too, to all who have continued to support our fundraising efforts.

 

In September the FA sanctioned reduced attendances at Grassroot games, November saw all games stop restarting on 5th December until 2nd January 2021 as we returned to lockdown. Games resume in April including the delayed 2019/20 Pyke Cup Final. Government and FA guidance continues to not allow spectators to attend games at enclosed grounds.

 

The West Cheshire League divisions are to be decided on a shortened format by teams playing each other once, where both league games have already been played, the scores are combined for an aggregate result.
