The Non-League Football Paper - - NATIONAL LEAGUE NORTH - By Alan Jones

BRAD BAURESS and Dion Charles both scored twice as Southport hit five sec­ond-half goals to com­plete tremen­dous turn­around.

Trail­ing to a Jack Ed­wards goal at the break, the Port turned on the style to ex­tend their un­beaten league run to 12, reg­is­ter­ing their fifth win in seven.

Leam­ing­ton took the lead ten min­utes be­fore the in­ter­val, as for­mer Wal­sall mid­fielder Reece Flana­gan’s deep free­kick was met at the far post by Ed­wards, whose shot was judged to have crossed the line.

Southport in­tro­duced De­varn Green at half­time and the sub­sti­tu­tion reaped im­me­di­ate div­i­dends, as his run and cross set up Bauress, who turned home the re­bound af­ter his ini­tial shot was saved by Brakes goal­keeper Tony Bree­den.

Green was to have a hand in three goals, pro­vid­ing a cross on 66 min­utes that was touched by Bauress into the path of David Mor­gan, who scored with a com­posed fin­ish.

Bauress added Southport’s third, re­ceiv­ing an­other Green be­fore tak­ing a touch to set him­self and find the bot­tom left-hand cor­ner.

Charles got on the score­sheet af­ter Mor­gan had com­bined with sub Jor­dan Richards, and the winger struck again in stop­page time af­ter ex­chang­ing passes with Jack Samp­son.
