Training ground is “Top priority” – Portsmouth Chief Executive

Mark Catlin, the chief executive of Portsmouth FC explains getting a new training ground is the main aim as the club’s supporters’ trust make a last ditch attempt to sell shares.

Fans of the League 2 club have until mid April – a year after the trust took control – to buy a £1,000 stake in the club.

Pompey have had difficulty with training grounds in recent history due to their very public off the field financial problems.

A new training ground is seen as essential for Pompey

The club used to be based King Edward VI School in Eastleigh but were forced to leave due to lack of funds and they are now using the local University at Langstone sports campus.

Portsmouth are also struggling on the field this season, with their 20 new faces over the course of this current campaign (14 over the Summer) failing to gel and the pre season title favourites currently sit in 21st, just 2 points above the bottom two.

Relegation this season would be their third successive in their ugly fall from grace, winning the FA Cup just 6 years ago.

The South Coast club next visit play off chasing Morecambe at the Globe Arena on Saturday.
