Joe Coates                              

Mascot v Accrington                                                                              

Our latest mascot draw winner 10 year old Joe Coates

endured the coldest afternoon of the season to see

his heroes record a 2-0 victory over Accrington.

Joe had a memorable day accompanying Enda Stevens

onto the pitch.                   

Joe was presented with a gift of a Nelson hat by central

branch on arrival at Fratton Park.

As a consequence of the cold weather Joe was allowed

special dispensation to wear the hat on his pre match

walk round the ground .                 

What a day !                         


Lewis Lortal, Saturday 26 November v Stevenage

"The day started with driving up from Chippenham with my mum and dad to meet Aunty Lynne and my nanny.

When I got to Fratton Park I was taken to PITC and met Maria who gave me a Nelson hat which I love.

When I had changed into the Pompey kit I met Nelson and loved it when we high fived.

Wearing the kit, passing the ball before the game, clapping the fans when walking around the ground, walking out with David Ford and then watching the game was a brilliant day for me".

Alfie Dandy Aged 12 v Notts County

Taller than Chaplin

Alfie had a great 12th birthday surprise as he only found out at the ground he was to be a mascot for the game.

He took the occasion in his stride and lapped up the pre-match atmosphere with the usual wave to the fratton end.

His day was made extra special as he accompanied Conor Chaplin onto the pitch.
Alfie couldn’t quite believe he was actually taller than Conor.

His day was capped off with a photo with Nelson wearing his new Nelson hat presented to him by central branch pre-match.

A memorable birthday.

Mascot Experience v Barnet


Sophie Tresidder

It was quite an honour to do it twice but other than that it was really fun.  I love the games and feeling special walking around the pitch.  Also enjoyed finally getting my hug from Jack Whatmough as he lived with my Nanny when he was an academy player.  I came back from my holiday to be a mascot.  I was so happy that we beat Barnet 5-1 and there was an extra surprise because our row got the free half-time pizzas from Dominos.

Mascot Experience v Crawley Town

James Fosse

Our lucky winner of the September mascot draw was James Fosse. James really enjoyed his day and is still smiling from ear to ear some 24 Hours later. James was accompanied on to the pitch by Pompey's man of the match Milan Lalkovic. It was only Jame's second match at Fratton Park, having seen the last game of last season, it was also his mothers first who was equally excited

James will also remember the day for having a cast on his arm having broken the same bone twice playing football, hopefully he can put these injuries behind him now. Hopefully this experience will inspire him even more to play football!

Saturday 20th August 2016- Reggie Dandy v Colchester United



Reggie’s visit to Fratton Park on Saturday was not what he expected, as his mother Becky had managed to keep his competition win, a secret from him


So when Reggie arrived at the Portsmouth Study Centre at 1pm, his early arrival was explained by the need to collect his Junior Blues membership pack. This in itself was an exciting experience; opening his pack to be wowed by his new scarf for the season and message from his hero Connor Chaplin.


At this point his day just got better, as his mum Becky broke the news that he was to be a mascot for the day; which he took in his stride. He accompanied David Forde onto the pitch, who added to his day.


There was a further surprise in store as he found himself sitting with his hero Conor Chaplin’s mum and sister. His day was complete as he cheered the Blues to a 2-0 victory.


He is now planning to take his autograph book up to the training ground to get his heroes autographs.


What a Day!
