KAL MAKES ASH TRIB­UTE

The Football League Paper - - FA CUP QUARTER-FINALS -

NOT many peo­ple un­der­stood the sig­nif­i­cance of Kal Nai­smith’s goal cel­e­bra­tion for Portsmouth at Steve­nage last Satur­day.

Af­ter net­ting his first goal for Pom­pey in the 2-0 win, the 24-year-old winger sig­nalled sky­wards as part of his cel­e­bra­tion. It was in mem­ory of his late girl­friend, Ash­ley Dickson – the 22-year-old died in Oc­to­ber 2014 fol­low­ing an epilep­tic seizure.

“That was for my late girl­friend, who passed away,” he told the Portsmouth News. “I had not scored for a long time since she passed and it was in mem­ory of her.

‘It was a spur of a mo­ment thing.”
