Two In The Frame

Chainrai + 1 interested in buying Portsmouth FC.
Trevor Birch has confirmed that there are two parties interested in buying Portsmouth Football Club.
Balram Chainrai is one of them as expected, as he looks to protect his investment with his minimalist ownership and virtual asset stripping of the club in an attempt to recoup the money he lost by taking over Pompey in the first place.
But who is the second party? We've heard absolutely nothing about them, not even a rumour worth entertaining. These people (or person) must be keeping their cards extremely close to their chest. Perhaps it is Peter Storrie and his associates?
The Community Trust bid hasn't been included as an "interested party" but Birch is ready to help them put a bid together, which is strange as it wasn't so long ago that he was dismissing the efforts of the Trust as "unfeasible".
In truth he is probably right. Unfortunately it doesn't look like the Trust will raise enough money to put together a serious bid for the club, which is a shame.
Perhaps the "second interested party" would consider a joint-ownership bid with the Trust? Even if it was risky, it would still have to be an infinitely better option than Balram Chainrai and his Portpin cronies.
