AFC Fylde will play in the National League North next season, a division the Coasters were promoted from as champions in the 2016/17 season.
We take a look at next season’s opponents, as Jim Bentley and his side look to secure promotion back to the National League.
Our next team ‘under review’, is Southport FC.
The Sandgrounders, The Port, The Yellows
Haig Avenue, known as the Pure Stadium for sponsorship reasons (Capacity 6,008)
2019/20 League Position:
Star Player 19/20:
David Morgan – The former Coasters midfielder is now captain at Southport and impressed despite their 4-1 defeat to Fylde in last year’s FA Trophy tie.
Liam Watson – The non league veteran is in his third permanent spell as Southport boss having led the club to two National League North titles in 2005 and 2010, as well as winning a third title with Telford in 2014.
Despite the geographical proximity between the two clubs, our FA Trophy Second Round tie in January was the only meeting between the sides to date. Goals from Jordan Williams, Dan Bradley and a brace from Nick Haughton secured a comfortable 4-1 victory for the Coasters
