Have your say

Football mad friends Alex Smart and Myles Turner share the same birthday so they decided to have a joint celebration.

The boys invited their friends from Court Lane Infant School, Cosham, to a Pompey football party at Highbury Sports Centre.

Coaches from Pompey in the Community, which runs activities and coaching sessions and works with schools, were hired to organise games, a football skills session and a penalty shoot-out.

The boys’ favourite coach from the organisation – which is connected to the football club – is Smiffy and they were thrilled that he hosted their party.

The children also enjoyed tasty food and Alex and Myles had a joint Skylanders birthday cake. Alex’s mum Julie said: ‘The boys had a fantastic time. They’re already planning what they’re going to do next year.’
