Pompey Deal Confirmed

Last updated : 19 April 2013 By Jim Bonner

The Portsmouth Supporters' Trust has officially become the new owner of Portsmouth Football Club after the paperwork was signed over at 8pm tonight.

Congratulations to everyone involved in making this happen. It has been a long slog and there has been many barriers to overcome but fan ownership is now a reality. Some would say the real hard work starts now!

With Pompey now out of administration we will soon discover if the Football League will deduct the ten points this season or roll over the punishment to next season.

Whatever the outcome there is now a huge opportunity to rebuild this club and its reputation after years of mismanagement and bad public relations. The people in charge can expect more criticism to come their way during the coming months and years but that is for later.

For now, Pompey fans can celebrate what will hopefully be the beginning of a brand new era not just for Portsmouth Football Club but maybe even the city itself.

And those celebrations will really take off come around 3pm tomorrow!
