The perfect Christmas present for your Blues-supporting loved one is now available in Pompey’s Club Store.

Played Up Pompey Too, released in September 2017, contains fresh interviews with 23 players who have contributed towards the creation of glorious achievements at a special football club.

The sequel to the Played Up Pompey explores the Blues careers of those whose outstanding performances between 1960 and 2015 established them as household names and folk heroes among the Fratton faithful.

They include Linvoy Primus, Steve Stone, Kevin Dillon, Steve Claridge, John Milkins, Paul Walsh, Svetoslav Todorov, Dejan Stefanovic, Billy Rafferty, Eoin Hand, Mick Quinn, David Norris, Colin Garwood, Jed Wallace, Nick Jennings, John Aloisi, Peter Mellor, Mike Trebilcock, Bobby Kellard, Jamie O'Hara, Neil Webb, John Beresford and John McClelland. With the foreword written by Ray Crawford.

The book, which was not initially stocked by Pompey’s club shop, carries interviews with nine different recipients of The News/Sports Mail Player of the Season, 10 Pompey Hall of Fame inductees, one FA Cup winner and a host of other Blues promotion winners at different levels of the Football League.

Priced at £17.99 and written by The News’ chief sports writer Neil Allen, Played Up Pompey Too is now available from the Anson Road store.

It can also be ordered from the store online, from Amazon or Waterstones in Portsmouth, Fareham and Petersfield.
