Linvoy Primus is to tread the famous Fratton turf once again next week.

The Pompey legend is coming out of retirement for the night to take part in a special charity match.

The event on Tuesday, May 10, pitches a Pompey legends side against a Soccer AM XI.

Tickets are priced from £2 and will also be available to buy on the night.

All proceeds will go to Primus’ Faith & Football charity to support their highly-regarded community and educational programmes in Portsmouth.

For Primus, it will be a first playing appearance at Fratton Park since his testimonial against Fulham last July.

And he will be lining up alongside plenty of other familiar Pompey faces.

Darren Anderton, Mark Chamberlain, Steve Claridge, Alan Knight, Justin Edinburgh and Vince Hilaire have also confirmed they will be in action.

In addition, there will be representatives from the Blues’ backroom, including Andy Awford, Guy Whittingham and Paul Hardyman.

They will be taking on a Soccer AM XI led by Max Rushden, who presents the popular Sky Sports show.

Former Quay favourite Sam Matterface will also be lacing up his boots for the occasion.

And there could even be a cameo from Express FM’s Mark Mudie.

The match is scheduled for a 7pm kick off.

Tickets are available to buy, cash only, from the Frogmore Road ticket office – priced at £5 for adults and £2 for under-16s.

There will also be the option to pay on the night.
