HAVE YOUR SAY ON POMPEY'S HISTORY

10 April 2015

Share your favourite memory

Pompey are inviting fans to make their contribution to the club’s rich history.

As part of the History Day planned for Sunday, April 19, they can sit in the manager’s dug-out and share their favourite Blues memory.

The club are working with a company called Collective Narrative on a project called PompeyVoices. 

This will become an online collection of fan memories, photos, video and memorabilia, as well as an official timeline of the club’s history.

Twenty fans will be selected to sit in manager Andy Awford’s seat on the day and be filmed explaining their favourite Pompey moment.

The content will then be used on the PompeyVoices website, which is due to be launched in May.

Colin Farmery, who oversees history and archiving projects at the club, said: “This is an exciting project and we hope plenty of fans will want to get involved with sharing their memories. 

“We have been working with Collective Narrative for several months now on the website concept and we are now ready to move it on to the next stage.

“We want fans to talk about anything which is important to them about the club. The PompeyVoices website is intended to be as much a social history of the club as an official record.”

If you would like to have a chance of being one of the 20 fans selected, you should register your interest by Thursday, April 16 and the memory you'd like to share here.

Pompey’s History Day will last from 11am-3pm and is centred on the twice annual programme and memorabilia fair, which will be held in the Victory Lounge under the Fratton End.

A display of club memorabilia will also be on show, including the replica FA Cup presented to the Blues for winning the trophy in 2008, as well as some other artefacts which rarely see the light of day.

There will also be an exhibition by the Pompey Pals project, which is a charity devoted to telling the story of the men from Portsmouth who signed up for duty at the outbreak of World War One.

Entry to the fair and the displays will be free, but the club are also organising tours of the stadium, including the dressing rooms, tunnel area and boardroom of the iconic venue.

Priced at just £10 for adults, with accompanied juniors free (instead of the usual £5), tours can be booked here.
