Pompey keeper David James has won another award - but this time it is his efforts off the field which have earned the plaudits.

James has been announced as the winner of the Football Supporters’ Federation’s (FSF) Columnist of the Year 2008.

Malcolm Clarke, chair of the FSF, presented the award to the England No 1 before Pompey's win over Stoke.

James’ column has consistently covered a diverse range of topics, from his own performance to ticket pricing, from climate change to the commercialisation of the game. They are a unique insight into the mind of an elite athlete who understands many of the average supporter’s concerns.

Clarke, ironically a Stoke fan, said: "David’s columns are not only brutally honest but in equal parts insightful, funny and educational. He has consistently entertained, informed, and surprised our members.

"I’m delighted the FSF has chosen David as the recipient for this year’s award, it also follows a magnificent year on the pitch for him.'

James, last season's Pompey player of the year, is away on England duty at present after a mixed start to his domestic season.

James award for Columnist of the Year is one of two the FSF have handed out this year.

Tony Kempster, who for more than a decade has run an acclaimed football website from his home in York, has won the annual Services to Supporters award from the FSF, which is given each year to people who have performed an outstanding service to the benefit of football supporters.
