PROMINENT Pompey fans group member Tony Goodall has today died.

The 49-year-old passed away in hospital this morning after initially suffering a stroke 12 days ago.

Mr Goodall, from Old Portsmouth, was a well-known and popular figure among Pompey supporters through his tireless work on their behalf.

He was spokesman and co-ordinator for the Pompey Independent Supporters Association (PISA).

Mr Goodall was also a founder member of the Pompey Supporters’ Trust and one of the original signatories.

In addition, he chaired the most recent fans’ conference, when administrator Trevor Birch met with supporter groups and bodies.

Barry Dewing, a fellow PISA member and close friend, said: ‘Tony was a tremendous friend and colleague.

‘You can never replace him, but those he has left behind will continue his fight for the fans.

‘Tony was always about community.’
