DIE-HARD Pompey fan Chris Roberts has his employers to thank for giving him the chance to save the club he loves.
Snows BMW Portsmouth, in Eastern Road, has given the dad-of-five enough overtime to help him cobble together cash to buy a Pompey Supporters’ Trust community share.
He has already pledged £100 to back the cause and hopes to be given the chance to acquire a share for £1,000.
Mr Roberts said: ‘I’ve pledged because I don’t want to see the club go under. I’ve been going since the 80s – it’s a community club and there’s no other fan base like it.
‘A fans’ takeover would bring more transparency but there’s a lot of work to be done with it.
‘If you can find the money anywhere, go out and pledge £100 to keep the club going. ‘
