POMPEY supporters are being urged to head to Fratton Park today and cheer on what could be the team’s last home game.

As the club’s future hangs in the balance, fans are being asked to go to the ground and support the team against Middlesbrough.

Scott Mclachlan, spokesman of the Pompey Supporters Trust, said: ‘I’m hoping quite a few people will turn up today.

‘I hope people wake up today and realise this could be the last ever game played inside Fratton Park.

‘It’s important because if it is the last game then whatever happens, the club deserves a send-off and a cheer, no matter what the future.

‘People need to ask themselves what will I do with my day and come along and watch Pompey one last time.

‘I can understand why people aren’t coming.

‘We thought the ticket prices would be lowered, but they weren’t.

‘I think some fans will stay behind after the game.’

The trust and the Pompey’s 12th Man Campaign joined forces this week to launch the Pay4aPal ticket scheme.

It gives generous supporters the chance to put cash into the trust’s PayPal account, which will then be used to buy tickets for local supporters to attend home games.

So far the scheme has raised more than £3,500 this week.

In total there are 233 tickets to be distributed.

Some tickets have been allocated to the following groups; The Beneficial Foundation, Two Saints, Havant Home Start, Faith and Football Buckland League, Faith and Football Milton League and Faith and Football Team Talk Programme.

Remaining tickets will be allocated on a first come, first served basis and can be collected from the trust bus at the Fratton-end car park from 1.30pm today.

Money can be donated via the Paypal buttons on the trust’s website at
