Barnes Stormer! David Is Southport’s Super Star

David Barnes has won Volunteer of the Month for Southport in the National League North.

An ever-present at Southport Football Club, Dave commits more than thirty hours each week to volunteering at the ground.

He is first to get there, at 7.30am – seven days a week – to prepare the building for the full-time staff’s arrival and as a retired joiner, he carries out numerous jobs around the stadium, which saves the club a lot of money.

On matchdays, he takes on the role of kit man for both home and away fixtures. Dave took up volunteering ten years ago to focus on something after his wife died.

He has just celebrated his 75th birthday and the Club wanted to show their gratitude for the brilliant support he gives them.
