Pompey set to start new season

Published Add your comment

Portsmouth have been given the go-ahead to start the new season while in administration - and manager Michael Appleton will embark on a transfer spree over the next 48 hours.

Portsmouth's future remains uncertain after former owner Balram Chainrai withdrew his offer to buy the club, but the Pompey Supporters' Trust remain hopeful of completing a takeover.

Pompey face another 10-point deduction but the Football League say that will not come into effect until the club exits administration, meaning they will begin the npower League One season on zero. A League spokesman said: "Given the ongoing dialogue between the administrator and the Supporters' Trust, the board has given its consent to Portsmouth beginning the new season in administration."
