Trophies On Display At Programme Fair

Event held at Fratton Park on Sunday

15 March 2019

Pompey trophies

Fans can take advantage of a rare opportunity to see the club’s impressive trophy cabinet on Sunday as part of the annual programme and memorabilia fair.

And they will also be able to bring along any items of memorabilia they might have stashed away in the attic to get an expert analysis of them.

Organised by the Pompey History Society, the fair starts at 11am in the Victory Lounge at Fratton Park.

Guided tours of the trophy cabinet will be held half-hourly from 11.15am until 12.45pm and the society will ask for a discretionary donation to be shared between them and the Pompey academy.

Colin Farmery, who chairs the society, said: “Pompey have a proud history and a few claims to fame in terms of the trophies we’ve won. For example, we are one of only a handful of clubs to win back-to-back titles since the war.

“That’s an honour we share with Wolves who, like the Blues, have also won all four divisions.

“Fans will be able to see all of these trophies, as well as the FA Cup. As a society we are keen to give supporters an opportunity to share the club’s heritage.

“The first division and third division trophy replicas we have were commissioned by the society using money donated by fans, so it’s only right they get a chance to see the silverware.”

The society also have a number of experts in their ranks and they will be on hand to see what memorabilia fans have to show. There will also be a small exhibition of club artefacts in the lounge itself.

Farmery added: “We are particularly hoping fans might bring along items from the Championship years in 1949 and 1950. The society have some big plans for commemorating the 70th anniversary of this event.

“We are also keen to meet supporters who witnessed Pompey winning the league. These are memories we need to capture for posterity.”

Dealers from across the south will also have stalls, selling a range of items. For more information on the event or on the activities of the society contact history@pompeyfc.co.uk
