About this deal

He also received an offer from West Ham United, who were in a higher division, but he rejected this because he felt his first team opportunities would be greater at Charlton. When I came to Portsmouth FC I met Darren Moore who was a Christian and he helped me in my decision to give my life to Jesus and since then I haven’t looked back. He did not get his Portsmouth career off to a good start, scoring an own goal on his debut away at Sheffield United. She previously represented England at the youth level and played in the United States for California State University-Fullerton and Chelsea Women [68] Primus and Trish married on 9 June 1999. The club went through three different managers after the departure of Clemence: Terry Bullivant (twice), Terry Gibson and Alan Mullery.

The match took place at their substitute stadium Upton Park in November 1992 and Primus was awarded man of the match for his performance. He played his first game of football two years later in a match between two Cub Scout groups and, because of his performance, he was offered a trial with the Newham District Schools under-11's by one of the Cub Scout leaders who was the manager of the Newham team.As a mainstay in the heart of Redknapp’s defence, Portsmouth fans will have played their part in some of Linvoy’s fondest memories – including Pompey’s surprise promotion to the Premier League in 2003, and famous victories over Manchester United and Liverpool.

Trish suffered from depression and was introduced to Christianity by stable owners, Keith and Sam, who invited the Primus family to join them at church on a Sunday. During December, Portsmouth were in a terrible run of form and Redknapp decided to bring one of his most reliable players back into his plans for the derby match with Southampton. Following his testimonial on 31 July 2010, Portsmouth announced that the Milton End Stand at Fratton Park would be renamed the 'Linvoy Primus Community Stand' because of his outstanding services to the club.

On 16 April 2013, Primus played for Portsmouth in a charity match raising money for the Portsmouth supporters trust. His next appearance for Barnet, against Scarborough, was described as the "worst performance of [his] career" in his autobiography. Despite originally being told by Redknapp he was not of Division One standard, let alone suitable for the Premier League, Primus proved his manager wrong by seizing his chance when other players missed out through injury and suspension.

Linvoy Stephen Primus MBE (born 14 September 1973) is an English former professional footballer who played as a defender. Following my time at Charlton Athletic as a young footballer and my other experiences at Barnet FC and Reading FC I realised that football could be a hard and heartless industry and that fame and fortune does not make you happy. Primus was a striker or right winger at this time; in the team was future Portsmouth teammate Sol Campbell who played in midfield.Due to an injury crisis, Reading lost their penultimate league match at Nottingham Forest and were relegated from Division One.

It was more about the people, doing the right things and I spoke to Marieanne (Spacey-Cale, manager) a couple of times and always had good conversations and I’ve heard great things about the team, about the club, the staff, everyone. Richard Steadman who is known to have saved the careers of many footballers, including Alan Shearer and Ronaldo. Primus went out on loan to former club Charlton and made 10 appearances and one further appearance for Portsmouth before retiring through injury in December 2009. At the end of the season, Primus was runner-up in the voting for the Player of the Season and was man of the match on several occasions.
