FANS of cash-strapped Portsmouth FC have raised over £1,000 for charity after descending on the Rock for a match against Gibraltar’s national team.
Nearly 500 supporters travelled from the UK and across Spain to cheer on Pompey, who eventually lost 4-0 in the pre-season friendly.
Portsmouth’s Costa del Sol supporter’s club chairman Gary Benham turned his home into an impromptu B&B for around 60 fans, all in aid of the Tom Prince Teenage Cancer Research Trust.
The charity is named after a young Portsmouth fan who died in 2004 from an aggressive form of the disease, known as Osteosarcoma.
