POMPEY legend Linvoy Primus was greeted with cheers at Fratton Park as his team finished a gruelling 180-mile charity bike ride.

The star joined 27 other riders to make the three-day trip from Fratton Park to Crawley Town FC’s Broadfield Stadium, then on to Brighton & Hove Albion’s ground and back to Portsmouth.

The mammoth bike ride – called Pedal For Primus – has so far raised £11,000 for Faith and Football’s community and education programmes.

Although this is the fourth time the charity has organised the bike ride, it is the first time Linvoy has been able to take part in it.

He said: ‘It was hard. Brighton has some serious hills!

‘When you go into extra time in a match at least you know how long you’ve got left to play, but out there you’ve got no clue, you just have to keep going. But I never forgot why we were doing it and we all stuck together as a team.’

Linvoy arrived home yesterday to a small army of fans who were enjoying a Faith and Football fun day at Fratton Park.
