Southport debutant Adam Anson impressed in central defence despite The Port falling to a narrow 2-1 defeat at home to Kidderminster on Saturday. 

Anson was signed from Northern Premier League side Witton Albion in January before returning to The Albs on a month long loan. 

The 23-year-old played the full 90 minutes on the left-hand side of a back three, but the former Liverpool trainee is very familiar with the role.

“When I was at Chorley I was in a back three.” Anson said.

“Then when I moved to Witton we played in a back three as well, it was the first time I’ve played left-hand side for a while but I feel like I’m comfortable with both of my feet.”

“I slotted in quite nicely.”

Anson partnered up with Ryan Astles and fellow new signing Jack Sanders in the heart of a Port defence which looked solid for large parts of Saturday’s clash.

Anson re-signed from Witton last month.

“I enjoyed it.” The former Wigan man said. 

“Personally, it was good for me to make my debut for a big club like Southport. 

“I look forward to playing again.”

The Port took the lead against Kiddy through captain David Morgan, who fired home a delightful half-volley from the edge of the area in the 20th minute.

Just three minutes later though the visitors equalised through a flicked header by centre-back Keith Lowe.

A fairly drab affair was settled in the 70th minute, as Ashley Hemmings fired home from outside of the area to ensure the points returned to the Midlands.
