Two of our FA cup winners, Glen Johnson and Jamie Ashdown have had their cup winners medals nicked! Scum bags, that is what the people are that have done this.
The pair - along with others - have made pleas for them to be returned and hopefully they will be found. This is what has appearing on the Pompey site...
JOHNSON & ASHDOWN PLEAD FOR MEDALS BACK
Glen Johnson and Jamie Ashdown have pleaded for the return of their FA Cup winners' medals.
Johnson's went missing from his wash bag, while Ashdown's medal was in his jacket, which was stolen from Pompey's team hotel while the Blues celebrated their FA Cup final win.
Blues defender Johnson, who played all 90 minutes of Pompey's 1-0 win over Cardiff, found his medal had gone after returning to the Oakley Court Hotel near Windsor following Sunday's victory parade through the streets of Portsmouth.
The England international said: "I put my medal in my wash bag after the game at Wembley. When we got back to the hotel I put my wash bag in my room, before packing it into my main bag on Sunday morning before the parade.
"We checked out of the rooms on Sunday morning and left our bags in a safe place to collect them after the parade.
"But when I got back to the hotel and checked to look at my winners' medal, it was gone.
"I'm so disappointed. I'm just keeping my fingers crossed someone's going to give it back."
Blues keeper Ashdown, an unused substitute at Wembley, was also devastated. He said: "The medal was in its box in one of my jacket pockets. The jacket was hanging on the back of a chair while I enjoyed a drink at the hotel with some of the other players and their families."
Pompey chief executive Peter Storrie said: "If someone has taken these medals, they have deprived our players of their lifelong dream.
"The medals appear to have been taken from the hotel, which is unfortunate because the hotel looked after us so well for the three days we were there.
"Clearly someone has come in from outside knowing that these medals were about and focused on taking them."
Anyone with information should contact Thames Valley Police on 0845 8 505 505.
PLAY UP POMPEY!
