POMPEY DELEGATION MEET PREMIER LEAGUE BOARD

Today five Portsmouth supporters from the SOS Pompey campaign and Pompey Supporters Trust met with Richard Scudamore and Mike Foster from the Premier League. We would like to thank them for their time.

The Premier League spoke of a number of specific measures it intends to take to ensure the effective regulation of all Premier League clubs including Portsmouth in the future, including the potential for the League to intervene and administer any club should it prove necessary.

We spoke very frankly about the issues including what we saw as past failings in the Fit and Proper Persons Test. We were very encouraged by the response and the willingness to learn lessons.

Mr Chainrai will face a detailed investigation into his ownership of Portsmouth including a face to face interview with the Premier League.

In addition the Premier League will consider our suggestion of a day to day onsite observer scrutinising the clubs operations.

We are very reassured that the situation at Portsmouth FC will continue to be a matter of the highest priority. Mr Chainrai will face unprecedented scrutiny before his ownership is ratified and any further failures to fulfil the ordinary obligations of a Premier League club will bring swift and immediate action.
