Quintet to be inducted into Pompey Hall of Fame
Mark Hateley heads Pompey's latest list of Hall of Fame inductees.
And also among the quintet is Pompey Ladies’ Gemma Hillier - the first female to be recognised by the club.
The Hall of Fame committee have chosen Hateley, Hillier, Mick Kennedy, Alan Rogers and Alex Wilson to be the newest entries.
With the dinner scheduled for Friday, March 9, the event will once more acknowledge the achievements of those who have starred for the Blues.
Hateley scored 25 goals in 44 appearances during the 1983-84 campaign, his only season at Fratton Park, and was subsequently sold to AC Milan.
Pompey fan Hillier possesses the Pompey Ladies appearance record of 282 matches and is also the club’s highest scorer with 92 goals. She recently retired to concentrate on Beach Soccer.
Rogers won two promotions with the Blues following his recruitment from Plymouth in the summer of 1979 by Frank Burrows, making 192 appearances.
The combative Kennedy was a popular figure at Fratton Park during Alan Ball’s first spell in charge, winning promotion to the top flight and making 149 appearances.
Finally, Wilson receives a posthumous award in recognition of serving Pompey for 18 years until 1967, with the Scotland international racking up 382 outings.
