Linvoy PrimusLinvoy Primus is hoping for a great turn out at the Pompey Pitch Side Restaurant (AKA the Fratton Park Sports Bar) as he shares from his own experience of his football career and his Christian faith on Monday 27th September 2010 at 7pm.

The purpose of the evening is to launch the Alpha Course, a 10 week Christian basics course outlinging key areas of the Christian faith and looking at the big question, "Is there more to life than this?".

Linvoy launches these courses 3 times a year at Fratton Park with the course running at Langstone Church in Shore Avenue, Portsmouth. He is excited to talk with people about what God means to him and the impact He has had on his football and life in general. He says, "For me the Alpha Course is a great opportunity for people from all walks of life to come and ask important questions and get some answers. Soon after I became a Christian I did an Alpha Course. It's so relaxed and you share a meal together, hear an interesting talk and then break into groups for discussion. As well as learning lots you make some great friends along the way!"

Linvoy's story is one of ups and downs, highs and lows and he takes you on a journey of what it's like to be a professional footballer with all the trimmings, to be rejected by managers, to achieve Premiership status along with personal accolades from supporters, what true happiness means to him and where God fits in to it all.

The Launch is open to anyone who is interested in hearing Linvoy's story and wanting answers to those big questions. The launch and course are free!

Pedal for PrimusA team of 39 cyclists pedalled 175 miles in three days to raise money for Linvoy Primus' Faith & Football charity.

They cycled from Fratton Park to Brighton, Aldershot and back to Fratton Park.

The cyclists were joined by riders from Faith & Football centres in Birmingham – headed by former Pompey defender Darren Moore – and Plymouth.

The first leg saw the cyclists ride from Fratton Park to Brighton's Withdean Stadium. After an overnight stop they reached Aldershot's EBB Stadium.

The Pedal for Primusriders made the journey back from Aldershot to Fratton Park, where a free community fun day attended by around 1,000 people took place.

The organisers are hopeful that the efforts will raise around £15,000 for Faith & Football.

At the end of their second leg at Aldershot the weary cyclists were met by Shots goalkeeping coach and Pompey legend Alan Knight.

And though Primus was prevented from cycling by the knee injury that cut short his Blues career, the former defender supported the riders en route, closely monitoring their progress.

It was the third Pedal For Primus ride: the first, two years ago, visited Linvoy's old clubs Charlton, Barnet, and Reading, raising £20,000 in the process.
