IT’S been a tough few months for the Anslow family who have been looking after mum Teresa.

Now, to say thank to them, she has nominated her husband Bill and son Harvey for a pair of Pompey tickets.

They will watch the Blues play Dagenham & Redbridge at Fratton Park tonight.

Teresa, 50, has recently had major surgery and said her family, including both her sons Callum, 14, and Harvey, 12, have been very supportive.

She said: ‘I have been very unwell in previous months and they have all looked after me. It has at times been very hard for all of them but they have rallied round and got on with things without any complaining.’

Harvey, from Havant, is a Pompey fan, whilst his brother supports Manchester United.

Harvey said: ‘I’m really excited. I’m a big fan. It’s really special because I don’t get to go to that many Pompey matches so it’s a big thing for me.’

The News giveaway offers a pair of tickets to each Pompey home game this season to fans who may not be able to afford to go, or who have done something extraordinary and deserve recognition.
