FA Cup

I have been to Fratton Park just the once. I decided to go to this game a couple of weeks before the game, as I noticed Gills weren't playing that weekend so, kept an eye on Gills just in case Gills got a game that weekend but they didn't so got myself a ticket. I'd been meaning to do Portsmouth for ages, so glad I finally got to tick off Fratton Park. I left home about 10am on the train, got to Redhill only to find that my train got cancelled, so in the end got a train 10 minutes later towards Horsham and then got another train towards Portsmouth. I noticed that Havant & Waterlooville's ground wasn't a million miles away from Portsmouth, so got into Havant around quarter to 1 and quickly walked to Havant's ground which was around a 20 minute walk and took a few pics. In the end, got to Fratton Park just after 2. I enjoyed visiting Portsmouth, got a lot of respect for the fans, they do get behind their side, atmosphere was very good, and not a bad ground either. It sort of reminded me of Priestfield in some ways! So in the end, it was a 1-0 win for Portsmouth with Adam McGurk getting the only goal of the game to send Portsmouth in the 3rd round of the FA Cup. I got home around 9, due to trains being delayed that day, but thoroughly enjoyed the day at Portsmouth. Nearest station to Portsmouth is Fratton, about a 10 minute walk.
