‘TOUCHLINE’ Tony Male kept the spirit of Pompey alive as he pounded the streets with others who love the club.

Tony – whose nickname comes from his role as a compere at Fratton Park – held his arms up high as he made it across the finish line with Pompey legend Linvoy Primus, 39, and two of the club’s fans, Paul Barden, 48, and Jay Zincle, 44.

Tony, of Hollam Road, Milton, Portsmouth, competed to raise money for Christian charity Faith in Football, which was founded by Linvoy in 2002. Tony, 52, said: ‘It was an absolutely brilliant day.

‘The crowds were cheering for Pompey as we went around the course.

‘The conditions were ideal for running and the wind kept out of our faces.’

The runners met in The Three Marines pub in Eastney after to raise more money for the charity.
