Southport chairman Charlie Clapham says the club are not going to make panic signings in January.

Clapham insists boss Liam Watson will be loyal to those that have led them to fourth in the Blue Square Bet Premier.

"The one thing we're in tandem on is that we're fourth in the table with the players we've got," Clapham told BBC Radio Merseyside.

"We're not looking to bring players in to take them out of the team. That's not what the club's all about."

Southport's quality play delights Clapham

Southport have turned their fortunes around since being reinstated after suffering relegation from the Blue Square Bet Premier last season.

Clapham, who took control at Haig Avenue in 1983, believes he has the right manager to get the best out of the players at his disposal.

"Liam is a sensible guy and he knows what our budget is," Clapham continued. "He's worked within that budget and he's got us to fourth in the table on that budget."

"Of course we could do with more money, to invest in the club in many different ways. They only way that really changes is if we can get more people coming to Haig Avenue."
