A pair of Linvoy's boots are on offer!

The Pompey fan funding campaign continues to gather pace, with the halfway point of £125,000 already reached.

For each of the remaining 27 days, a new reward will be released and available to purchase for a period of 24 hours.

Each one will give supporters the chance to own a unique piece of Blues history and the idea was the brainchild of chief executive Mark Catlin, in order to celebrate reaching the 50 per cent milestone so quickly.

He explained: “We’re lucky to have such wonderful fans and wanted to do something special.

“So we’ve delved into our archives and identified some items from the club’s past that we will make available as rewards.”

Commercial and marketing manager Micah Hall added: “It is already an amazing achievement to have reached £125,000.

“These new rewards range from the sublime to the bizarre, but each represent a unique part of our history.”

The first of these rewards is a pair of Adidas Copa Mundial boots worn by Linvoy Primus during the 2005/06 season.

“The fact we’re kicking things off with a pair of Linvoy’s boots hopefully gives you some idea of what’s to come,” added Hall. “We really want to capture the imagination and have still got lots more weird and wonderful things to come.”

The Pompey FanFunding campaign was launched in June by Andy Awford and Gianluca Vialli and is designed to raise £250,000 to create two pitches for the academy at the club’s new training ground at Roko.

The strategy behind the campaign is to offer exclusive rewards in exchange for financial contributions from the fans to help raise the funds.

A number of rewards are already available, ranging from personalised letters of thanks, signed pictures, shirts and the opportunity to have you name engraved on a plaque outside the training ground once it is open.

Make sure you follow the Pompey Twitter and Facebook pages for announcements of each new reward and there will be updates on the official site for some of the major one.

You can purchase your own unique reward on the official campaign page and 100 per cent of the money raised will go directly to the campaign.
