It was with much sadness that the club has learned of the passing of former Club Chairman, John Hesketh on Saturday 12th January 2019. John was chairman at South for two periods at the club 1971/74 and 1977. All at South pass on our condolences to son, Peter and all the family at this sad time.
To remember the good times that John brought to South we could think of none better than this photo. John (left), newly leading his club, welcomed new manager (and ex South stalwart) Bobby Murdoch to the club in July 1972. That season South would go on an FA Cup run to the first round prorper, losing out to Tranmere Rovers at Holly Park in front of over 4000.
The players l-r) Gerry Glover, Albie Jenkins, Albie Nieman, Jimmy Sullivan, Bobby Reason & Peter Eales.
Happy days, thank you John from all at South Liverpool FC.

DAVID MEE - West Cheshire League Player of the Season 2017/18
David was named the League's Player of the Year for 2017/18. He was the Second Divisions best player for his goal scoring exploits and consistent performances for South reserves as voted for by opposing teams. He then beat the other divisional nominees to take the overall title.
This built on David's success in 2016/17 when he was first named Second Division player of the year. It's a great achievement for South Reserves top striker to earn these awards.
Here is David picking up the awards at South. David has been with the club since his youth team days under Mark Eyres and was part of South's treble winning youth side of 2015.
Well Done David!
Here's the link to an article produced by Matthew Jones for Parallel.cyrmru featuring mainly our club's appearance in the Welsh Cup Final in 1939.
Its bilingual with Welsh on the left and English on the right. Our thanks to Matt in producing this!
After his 1991 book HOLLY PARK - THE LOST YEARS Hyder extended and updated the information to produce a new tome covering both our club and the two previous unconnected clubs that bore the name, entitled REST IN PIECES, South Liverpool Football Clubs 1894 - 1994. The hard back book was published in April 2013 and sold out which was impressive reflecting the affection to our club and all its history. A paperback version followed in 2014 which added more text and pictures stretchcing to over 650 pages. Our club does not now have any copies available for sale but can sometimes be found on Amazon or E-Bay.
