Former Pompey captain and manager Ron Tindall has died at the age of 76.

The club stalwart, who spent 11 years at Fratton Park as a player, played in every position and was also coach and general manager.

Tindall made 181 appearances for the club and scored nine goals but is also fondly remembered for twice taking over the goalkeeping duties from the injured John Milkins.

Joining the club in 1964, Streatham-born Tindall also played first-class cricket for Surrey, scoring more than 5,000 runs and taking 150 wickets, until he quit in 1966 to focus on football.

He then managed the Blues from 1970-73 before being succeeded by John Mortimore. Tindall emigrated to Australia in retirement.
