A last minute friendly has been arranged by Pompey at Privett Park, Gosport tonight kick off is at 7.45.
It had been rumoured that a Middle East side were going to play a closed doors friendly at Fratton Park yesterday but this was cancelled over the weekend and Gosport a club with strong ties to Pompey jumped at the chance to entertain their Premier League neighbours.
As I started to write this article the Official Site has just published that Antii Niemi will make his first appearance for the club and the rest of the squad will be made up of the development squad under Guy Whittingham including five players who travelled to Guimaraes last week.
The squad is Niemi, Hurst, Sowah, Ward, Wilkinson, Pack, Cuvelier, Kilbey, Mahoto, du Chattelier, Ritchie, Cowan-Hall, Subotic.
Prices are £10 for adults and £5 concessions - all pay on the gate as no tickets are available in advance.
For those who want to know how to get to Privett Park. The club have provided me with this -
Leave the M27 at junction 11 and follow the signs 'A32 Gosport'. After approximately four miles you will reach two roundabouts in quick succession. Go straight ahead at the first and take the third exit (signposted 'Alverstoke, Stokes Bay, Privett Park') at the second. Follow this road (Military Road) until reaching the roundabout at the Cocked Hat pub. Take the first exit into Privett Road. The ground is signposted on the left after 300 yards.
Parking is available for approximately 40 vehicles. On street parking is available but we would as you to park considerately and respect our neighbours. Please do not block driveways.
From Portsmouth cross the harbour by the regular ferry service which departs from the Gosport Ferry pontoon immediately adjacent the railway station (£2.30 return).
Gosport Bus Station is situated alongside the Gosport pontoon and services 34 and 72 pass within yards of the ground (one bus on each service per hour). The journey time from the bus station to Privett Park is approximately ten minutes. If you are fit you can walk!!
If anyone is going, why not write a report and I will publish it for you.
