LUCKY fan Jay Cooper won a signed football shirt from his favourite team.

The Portsmouth FC shirt was given to Jay, from Hilsea, at a meet and greet event at the team’s sponsors.

More than 70 Portsmouth FC fans turned out to meet their idols, at the Covers’ Portsmouth depot in Norway Road on Monday.

Visitors to the timber and builders merchant had the chance to take photographs with some of the team.

They were also able to get autographs and enter a competition to win a signed Portsmouth FC football shirt.

Players who attended the meet and greet included defender Enda Stevens, goalkeeper Ryan Fulton and winger Ben Tollitt.

Dale Lambourne, manager at Covers Portsmouth, said: ‘It was a pleasure welcoming the players and fans to our store.

‘There was a great atmosphere throughout the event and it was fantastic to see so many people take the opportunity to get photographs and have a chat with a few of their football idols.’

In the crowd were brothers Ben Hughes, 11, and Leo Hughes, who was celebrating his seventh birthday.

The meet and greet was the second one of its type held to mark the builders merchants renewing its sponsorship deal with Pompey until the end of the 2017/18 season.

Covers will continue to be an official club partner, with its branding appearing on the kit and stadium perimeter boards. Covers also sponsors the Sports Mail, produced by The News.
