POMPEY players have paid a visit to children at the Naomi House hospice.

The hospice, near Winchester, which supports children with life-limiting and life-threatening conditions, welcomed players from the Pompey squad.

Linvoy Primus, a great supporter of Naomi House, led a tour of players including Jamie Ashdown, Harden Mullins, Steven Henderson, Hermann Hreidarsson, Tal Ben Haim and Erik Huseklepp.

The players brought early Christmas gifts with them in the form of signed shirts and balls.

They spent time with the children and families and got their hands dirty painting Christmas baubles and decorating cakes.

Linvoy Primus said: ‘We had a great time at Naomi House and really enjoyed meeting the children, families and care team.

‘I’ve been a supporter of Naomi House for some time now and am always impressed by the fun, friendly atmosphere at the hospice, particularly at Christmas. I wish all of the children and families there a very Merry Christmas.’
