KEN Malley, the chairman of the Pompey Supporters Trust, is in hospital after a stroke.
Mr Malley was taken to the North Devon District Hospital in Barnstaple on Friday, where he has remained since.
PST vice-chairman Tom Dearie visited Mr Malley today and said thoughts of Pompey fans are with him.
He said: ‘A lot of people are thinking of Ken.
‘He is a very popular and well-loved figure who is known all across Portsmouth and beyond.
‘People are sending that love to him along with all our prayers and best wishes.’
The 70-year-old took on the trust chairman’s position in December from Ashley Brown.
Mr Malley is a co-founder of the trust and also an executive director of the Football Supporters’ Federation.
Mr Dearie will take on Mr Malley’s duties in his absence.
