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.

A statement from the trust said: ‘We will keep you updated with regards to Ken’s condition as we receive news. Our love and best wishes are with Ken and his family.’
