Still A Portsmouth Fan After 84 Years!

1st October 2013

One of Portsmouth Football Club's most loyal football fans is living at Blackbrook House Residential Care Home in Fareham.

 

One of our elderly residents has the distinction of being a Portsmouth FC fan for over 84 years!

 

According to wikipedia, Portsmouth's home matches have been played at Fratton Park since the club's formation in 1898.  The club have been champions of England twice in succession during 1949 and 1950. Portsmouth have also won the FA Cup on two occasions, once in 1939 and then again almost 70 years later in 2008.

 

It's fantastic to think that our resident has been following the club since 1929, and seen all of the clubs highs and lows!

 

The 97 year old gentleman is still a dedicated season ticket holder and is planning to go and watch a game at Fratton Park soon.
