Peter Morley, a resident of Fratton, on why Portsmouth should be awarded the City of Football title and earn £1.6m from Sport England

We are the city of football.

We won the FA Cup in 2008 and had 200,000 people on the common to celebrate and that feeling hasn’t left us.

I have always backed Pompey – it’s our club, our city, so it’s really important we win this and how great to be the country’s first official City of Football.

If we can come together as a city to buy the club let’s do it again and win this.
