The Pompey Official Site was just carried the following statement
‘Andrew Andronikou has announced that Peter Storrie, the chief executive of Portsmouth Football Club, has, after talks with his family and friends, decided it is in the best interests of the club for him to leave his full-time employment.
The administrators would like to thank Mr Storrie for his undivided assistance and support over the past few weeks.
Mr Storrie has pledged to continue to assist the club and the administrators on a range of matters, including the sale of the club, the FA Cup semi-final arrangements and other projects and will be remunerated accordingly.’
That news will please the vast majority of fans who believe that while he was not totally to blame for the club’s current predicament he should have acted to prevent it as Chief Executive.
He told ESPN that he is hoping to stay in the game but ‘I do need a break first, what has happened at Portsmouth has been exhausting, it has taken its toll, but I still love the game.’
