Pompey boss encouraged by ‘good options’

Have your say

David Lampitt can expect a soaking at the inaugural Fans’ Day next week.

The Blues’ chief executive has volunteered to sit in a dunk tank at Monday’s Fratton end car park event.

Fans will then have the opportunity to try to knock him off his perch and into the cold water below.

But they will have to be quick. Lampitt will be there for just 30 minutes only – with others eager to take part in the dunk tank.

Also lined-up from Pompey are commercial director Lucius Peart and Academy manager Andy Awford.

And they will be joined by Express FM’s commentary pairing Mark Mudie and Alex Crook.

The Fans’ Day has been created to bring the community closer together and celebrate people’s love for Portsmouth Football Club.

It is entirely supporter driven, with all proceeds to be shared between the Tom Prince Cancer Trust and the Portsmouth Sports & Education Foundation.

Starting from midday, a host of activities and stalls have been booked, most of them sponsored by local business and run by Pompey fans.

For the kids, there are trampolines, a bouncy castle, teacups, a giant slide, an assault course and face painting.

Meanwhile, events for the over-16s include an inflatable table football game with prizes on offer.

Teams are being urged to enter, with adults and kids’ cups up for grabs. Anyone interested in entering can contact Steve Tovey at Steve

There will also be a bungee run, a rodeo and surf rides, plus gladiator jousting.

In addition, a music stage is also planned, featuring local acts such as The Replays, The Beatmakers, Offbeat Offensive, Katie Owen and Kekell SA.

And Ash Randall, one of the world’s best football jugglers, will be holding displays all afternoon and available to teach kids some of the tricks.
