Hall of Fame Dinner at Pompey

I had been looking forward to this night for what seemed ages but it was only a month ago I got a ticket to see some ex Pompey players get inducted in to the Hall Of Fame 7/4/17 !

I got taken to the event by my dad and when I got in there it was fairly busy already. I found where we were going to be sitting and I said hello before waiting to meet the inductees. We had Alan Knight on our table for dinner and I made sure he was sat next to me by waiting till there was only two spaces left!

First I met Vince Hilaire, who I couldn’t believe how short he was in real life. He was really nice to meet, he made me feel welcomed since he is friends with me on Facebook. I got myself a pic with him and we had a little chat. I will be seeing him on 17/4/17 too when Pompey legends play against Glasgow Rangers again!

Next I got a bit of a ‘wow’ moment as I got introduced to Alan Biley (mullet famous!) and he was super nice too – never thought I’d meet him ever. That was the shock meet of the whole evening. Alan is already in the HoF since 2011 but I was so amazed to meet him as he is very well known about with Pompey fans. Proper legend he is. Biley liked that I play football as a striker – we kinda instantly clicked when we met.

Paul Merson was meant to be at the evening but he ended up not making it. He was due to be inducted in to HoF too.

I also had a chance to catch up with Ray Crawford who I had met back in September last year. This time I got his autograph and had a great time chatting.

It was all very surreal and I thank Sam for getting me my ticket. People that didn’t go certainly missed a fab evening. The food was delicious and I think the pudding was the best as it was chocolate!
