IT IS a sight that is hard to miss and will certainly put Gosport Borough on the map.

Two dedicated fans have made a 60sq metre flag which has the club’s badge and the slogan ‘We are the famous Gosport Borough’.

Geoff Powell and Cedric Bontemps spent many hours making the flag which will travel up to Wembley Stadium with them.

The bright yellow flag is set to encourage the team and thank them for their efforts.

Geoff, 45, said: ‘I wanted to make a flag for the final to show the team how much the fans appreciate their efforts and to encourage them to go out and do well.

‘My friend works for North Sails, a sail-making firm in Gosport, and they kindly donated all the materials to make the flag.

‘The badge was sewn together and not computerised on to it and we spent a couple nights staying up late to get it done. It looks fantastic and nearly took up one of the Gosport Borough stands.’

The flag will feature at the FA Trophy final tomorrow and Geoff said Cedric did fantastic work.

He added: ‘Cedric worked so hard and was determined to make it perfect.

‘We have left a space which will hopefully have FA Trophy champions put on it after Sunday. It will at least have FA Trophy finalists.’
