Chair – John Cannings

John has been a Northern Blue stalwart for many years and held the role of chair for the 2016-17 season. John was unanimously voted by the committee to succeed outgoing Chair Rick Sweetnam, although he stated that he intends to only keep the role for one year as he has now moved back down south.

With his excellent treasurer skills, we have managed to keep membership fees at the same level for many seasons, whilst still being able to release funds for many Pompey causes, including buying group shares in the club via Pompey Supporters Trust, investing in the Academy through the Tifosy scheme, sponsoring Pompey Ladies players and donations to our friends the Pompey Disabled Supporters Association.
