PRESS RELEASE (wot I wrote in March 2010) Headline – Passionate Pompey fans rally round Portsmouth Football Club

Two musicians, who are also lifelong supporters of Portsmouth Football Club have recorded a song to be used as fundraiser for the club which recently made history by being the first Premier League team ever to enter administration.

Phil Swan and Mike Fowler are the founding members of the band Forever Blue and in 2008

co-wrote and produced ‘We’re On Our Way (to Wembley)’ for Portsmouth fans in celebration of the club’s historic 1-0 quarter final win at Old Trafford against Manchester United – Portsmouth then went on to win the FA Cup that year for the second time in the club’s history.

Despite their precarious financial position, Portsmouth Football Club now also faces the prospect of chasing FA Cup glory once again as the club has made it to the FA Cup semi-finals; which will be played out at Wembley Stadium on Sunday April 11th 2010.

Phil and Mike have re-recorded and released ‘We’re On Our Way (to Wembley)’ but this time as a way for fans to support and rally around their club in its hour of need. Phil said;

“Well Mike and I have changed the lyrics a bit, as the original needed some alterations. We’ve recorded an updated version and now we are going to release the track giving all the money made from sales straight to the club. We’re in administration and we’re bottom of the table but we’re still going to Wembley. That is the passion of Pompey for you and the magic of the FA Cup, and that is what we are singing in our song.”

The track will be available online to download on the official Portsmouth Football Club web site and at http://www.mungojerry.com/Shop#MP3s ; Phil and Mike are in the process of organising several live performances of ‘We’re On Our Way (to Wembley)’ on national, regional, local TV and radio stations.
