POMPEY legend Linvoy Primus spent the entire day urging youngsters around the wider Portsmouth area to raise cash for the Tom Prince Cancer Trust.

Wherever he went he was feted by children at numerous schools wanting to talk to him about his playing days at Fratton Park.

But he made sure that the Blue Day fundraising message got home.

Linvoy, pictured, told The News: ‘I love everything to do with Blue Day and it’s always a pleasure to see the joy the children get from taking part.

‘But this is not something that can just be taken lightly – there is a very serious point to it all and that is to find a cure for this particular form of cancer.’

He added: ‘It’s a very, very worthy cause and I’m just happy to be involved. Young Tom was a good friend of the players and the club.’

He said he was delighted to play his part in the campaign to help Adele and Clinton Prince reach their £1m target.

‘The football club have been involved since the beginning when we got to the FA Cup final.

‘This is the fourth year we’ve had Blue Days and they get better all the time.’
