Pompey are mourning the loss of Paul Mariner, who has passed away at the age of 68.
The former England international striker scored nine goals in 66 appearances for the Blues between 1986 and 1988.
He was part of the side that finished second in Division Two during the 1986/87 campaign to secure promotion to the top-flight.
Starting his career with Plymouth, Mariner is probably best remembered for his time with Ipswich and was inducted into the club’s Hall of Fame.
He moved on to play for Arsenal before arriving at Fratton Park and later featured for clubs in Australia and America.
Mariner was capped 35 times by England – scoring 13 goals – and represented his country at the 1980 European Championship and 1982 World Cup.
After hanging up his boots in the 1990s, he moved into coaching and had a stint as manager back at Plymouth.
RIP: Paul Mariner
