Fresh delay to Pompey takeover
5:26pm Wednesday 30th January 2013 in Football League
The Pompey Supporters' Trust's bid to buy Portsmouth FC remains on course, despite a further adjournment of the court case which will value Fratton Park and effectively ratify the take-over.
It was confirmed this afternoon that the case, scheduled for tomorrow, had been put back a further fortnight to Thursday, February 14.
“The new delay is very frustrating for the PST bid team and we share that feeling with many fans I am sure,” said Ashley Brown, PST Chairman.
“However, the hearing is not directly PST’s affair, but we see it as a move which helps us to get our bid over the line.
“We have been working very hard on preparing for the case, but it remains a very complex deal and there have been significant paperwork demands and legal hurdles to get over.
“Our bid is virtually complete and the additional time will allow the final i’s to be dotted and t’s to be crossed, before the case is put before a High Court Judge.
“We remain confident we will take control of the club by early March.”
