POMPEY administrator Trevor Birch has given his backing to the supporters’ takeover scheme.
Mr Birch, PKF partner and joint administrator of the club, has been looking for a new buyer since February 17.
He said: ‘Everyone stands to benefit from closer links between football clubs and their local communities. Any initiative that helps to strengthen this relationship should be welcomed.
‘The Pompey Supporters’ Trust’s campaign is a good idea and deserves a positive reception from fans.
‘We have been working closely with the trust since our appointment as administrators and hope to continue to do so.
‘If the initiative leads to a bid by the trust to buy the club then we will, of course, give it serious consideration.’
