Portsmouth ‘ambiguities’ cleared up

Taking Portsmouth out of administration and into the ownership of the Pompey Supporters’ Trust (PST) has never been a straightforward process.   As PST spokesman Colin Farmery said today, ‘We always expect the unexpected.’

Some ‘ambiguities’ emerged in today’s High Court hearing which suggested for a time that the Football League might be wavering in its support of the PST bid and considering again that led by the Keith Harris consortium.

Taking Portsmouth out of administration and into the ownership of the Pompey Supporters’ Trust (PST) has never been a straightforward process.   As PST spokesman Colin Farmery said today, ‘We always expect the unexpected.’

Some ‘ambiguities’ emerged in today’s High Court hearing which suggested for a time that the Football League might be wavering in its support of the PST bid and considering again that led by the Keith Harris consortium.

However, this has now been cleared up.     PST has issued a statement which says,‘The Football League has cleared up any confusion by making it clear for a third time that it will only consider a bid from PST.’

Trevor Birch from administrators PKF said, ‘The court has this morning confirmed that the case will be heard by 19 April at the latest, which will enable us to meet the Football League’s deadline for the sale of the club, subject to a favourable ruling. We hope that, in the next few days, the court will be able to set a specific date for this hearing.’
