A HAVANT load monitoring specialist has been confirmed as the main sponsor for Portsmouth FC’s under-11 team for its 2014-2015 season.

The team consists of players who have been scouted from the local area and selected to play for the academy’s elite programme.

All of the sponsorship money goes towards the academy, helping to buy the team’s equipment and kits.

Straightpoint’s UK headquarters are in Havant and directors David Ayling and Peter McGreal are long-standing fans of Portsmouth FC.

Peter said: ‘David and myself have been supporters and season ticket holders of the club for over 40 years combined.

‘As a local business we are impressed with the fact that Portsmouth FC is now a community club, majority owned by the fans. We are proud to support local, budding talent.’
