Legend to become club ambassador
Alan Knight has stepped down as Pompey’s goalkeeping coach on health grounds.
But the Blues legend – who was awarded the MBE in 2001 – will stay at Fratton Park in an ambassadorial role.
Knight said: “I have made this decision because I need to get some hip and knee problems sorted.
“But I’m grateful that the club have found a new position for me and I can’t wait to get started.”
Knight made 801 appearances for Pompey during his playing days, staying at the club in a coaching role before spells in America and with Bournemouth, Dorchester, Havant & Waterlooville, Horndean and Aldershot.
He then returned to Fratton Park as goalkeeping coach following John Keeley’s departure to Blackburn in January.
