Isle of Wight   Pompey Supporters Club

Supporters Club


We all hoped for a good night on Friday and we weren’t disappointed. Extremely well attended and despite a few technical problems everyone seemed to have a really good evening. 

At this moment in time we don’t know the final figures but it is safe to say that overall return will be as good if not better than recent race nights. How was this possible? In short, a fantastic response from Members keen for a night out and wishing to raise some money for those less fortunate than ourselves...although being a Pompey fan makes us all pretty unfortunate to be honest. 

As Chairman, I’d like to thanks Laurence and Steve B for organising the event with the help of Gary Brodie and the Committee at Vectis Club...hopefully we gave the takings behind the bar a real boost on the night! I’d also like to thank KB (who used to be Bigger Kev) and Jane for their work in the ‘back office’ and Pete, Stuart, Dave, Mark, Steve L and Emma on the ‘front line’ on the tote. 

It was great to have Alan and Maz over from Spain. I think they really enjoyed the evening and it was nice to see them and show Al that the Supporters Club (unlike the team) continues to thrive despite them emigrating! 

Bev won the Mark McNulty shirt; she always seems to win something.

For me the most exciting part of the evening is always the auction race. One or two nervously clutch their purse or hide under the table or in the toilet but the overwhelming majority ‘put their hand in their pocket’ and go to great lengths to make sure the evening is an overwhelming success. Almost £70 a horse is real commitment and it was nice to see a Committee Member win the money even though he had to share it with the Nodgham Lane Residents Association!!

Thank you everyone
