A supporter legally without a friend (3)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

leg

Here is my best explanation:

'a supporter' is the definition.

'legally without a friend' is the subsidiary indication.

'without' suggests deleting specific letters.

'a friend' becomes 'ally' ('ally' can be a synonym of 'friend').

'legally' with 'ally' removed is 'leg'.

This clue was last seen in Evening Standard

(Other definitions for leg that I've seen before include "Poultry portion", "Section of journey; limb", "part of course", "Stage (of race)", "prop", "On", "Support; cricket side", "Projecting support for chair or table", "Limb; stage" and "A lower limb".)
