There aren’t too many bright spots on the Pompey horizon after their disastrous tour of America, but at least Linvoy Primus’s testimonial promises to be an uplifting day.

The club have released more information about a day on which Fulham are the opposition and which will give Blues fans a final chance to see their team in action before the campaign proper begins.


Pompey say the popular former defender will sign copies of his book in the Pompey megastore between 12 and 1 on Saturday, and limited-edition Linvoy mugs and T-shirts will be available.

A special programme will be on sale priced £2. Each programme will have a number, one of which will be drawn at half-time with the holder winning a pair of season tickets.

Tickets for the game itself are available from the ticket office and are £15 for adults and £5 for 60-and-overs and 22-and-unders. They can also be bought on the Pompey website or by calling 0844 847 1898 – although tickets bought over the phone will come with a £2 fee.

The unfortunate thing for Primus is the game has come at a time when Pompey fans appear to have little appetite for the season ahead, with the immediate and longer-term future of the club still very much in the air with the taxman’s impending appeal over the proposed CVA to take the club out of administration.

But the hope will be that many supporters will put their disdain for recent events to one side to pay homage to a player who has done probably more than any other over the past decade for the Fratton cause.

And apart from anything else, the fact Pompey’s squad is so battered and threadbare after the transfer embargo and injuries suffered on the American tour, means Saturday could well give fans an indication of how much of a struggle at least the early part of the season in the Championship could be.
