Pompey’s Hall of Fame will be opening its doors tonight to induct more club legends.

The popular event, now is its fourth year, has moved to the Marriott Hotel this time around.

And Reg Flewin, Norman Piper, Alan Biley and Steve Claridge are all being recognised in an evening of nostalgia.

Such has been the continued popularity of the event, more people than ever are attending the event.

The likes of former Pompey favourites Kit Symons, Alan Knight, Ray Crawford, Pat Neil and Steve Foster will also be in attendance.

And chairman Jake Payne is anticipating an enjoyable evening.

He said: ‘This is the fourth year of the Hall of Fame and for two of those the club has been on the bones of its backside.

‘But it’s nice that for one night we can all forget about what is going on off the field and celebrate the tremendous history of the club.

‘It’s a big night of the year. People want to be there to walk down memory lane and mix with their heroes. Long may it continue.

‘Reg Flewin and his wife never had any children so we have his nephew’s wife, Angela, collecting an award on his behalf.

‘But Norman, Alan and Steve will all be there in person.

‘In fact, Norman has flown in from San Diego along with 20 members of the Pompey Exiles Stateside.

‘It should be a great night.’
