Jackett: Pompey still pose threat without Pitman

Have your say

Look who’s back watching football again.

It’s none other than Peter Storrie.

Pompey’s former chief executive is a controversial figure among many Blues fans after working in the key role in the build-up to the club’s dramatic financial meltdown.

Since then he has maintained a low profile in the city. He certainly has given Fratton Park a wide berth.

Yet Storrie was spotted at Langstone Harbour pitches on Sunday taking in a local match.

Apparently walking his two dogs, the 58-year-old stopped to watch Chasing FC take on Cowplain United on pitch one.

The sides were doing battle in the semi-finals of the Buster Gordon Cup.

Cowplain won 1-0 to reach the final.

As for Storrie, he continued to walk his dogs in the early afternoon sunshine before the heavens opened.

From the Fratton Park directors’ box to Langstone pitch one.

How the mighty fall.
