Two Portsmouth players have had their FA Cup medals stolen after Sunday’s celebrations, following the FA Cup final a day earlier.

After the parade in Portsmouth on Sunday, Glen Johnson and Jamie Ashdown discovered that their medals were missing.

“I put my medal in my washbag after the game at Wembley. When we got back to the hotel I put my washbag in my room, before packing it into my main bag on Sunday morning before the parade,” said Johnson.

“We checked out the rooms on Sunday morning and left our bags in a safe place to collect them after the parade. But when I got back to the hotel and checked to look at my winner’s medal, it was gone.

“I’m so disappointed. I’m just keeping my fingers crossed someone is going to give it back.”
