We want your votes for The News Pompey player of the season.

And when all the votes are tallied, you could be picked out to present the award to the winner on the pitch at Fratton Park.

Blues greats like Mark Hateley, Guy Whittingham, Steve Claridge and David James have all won the prestigious trophy in the past.

And Jason Pearce added his name to the list after being named last season’s popular winner.

Now we want your choice for the Blues’ best player during a difficult 2012-13 campaign.

We’ve teamed up with Pompey to offer one lucky reader two tickets and the chance to hand over the trophy to the player who comes out on top before Pompey’s final home match of the season against Sheffield United on April 20.

Everyone who casts a vote will be put into the competition draw to win the fantastic opportunity.
