The Fareham firm will be the sole coach transport provider for all away games, with fleets of modern, executive coaches travelling to competitor grounds across UK throughout the season.

With away fixtures against the likes of Blackpool, Plymouth and Grimsby in the pipeline, as well as any potential cup matches, Lucketts’ coaches could travel more than 10,000 miles over the season, transporting thousands of supporters to away games in first-class style.

Paul Barringer, from Lucketts, said: ‘Portsmouth FC has made some a number of signings over the summer but needless to say the signing of Lucketts has to be our favourite. We’ve provided an exemplary service for the club over the years so we’re delighted that it’s been recognised through this latest contract.’
