GOSPORT MP Caroline Dinenage has been a Pompey fan ever since she was a youngster.

That’s why she’s absolutely delighted the club’s legion of devoted supporters have won the day.

‘It’s fantastic,’ she said.

‘Pompey is now the biggest fan-owned club in the country and that is something to be extremely proud about.

‘So many people have put so much effort into bringing this into fruition, overcoming so many obstacles.

‘There have been many times when we thought it was never going to happen so it has been a nail-biting day.

‘It’s good news.’
