The Pompey Supporters Trust will meet David Lampitt next week.

And members are being asked to send in the questions they want answered by the Blues' chief executive.

A delegation from the Trust board will be sitting down with Lampitt at Fratton Park on Wednesday, January 19.

They will be posing questions surrounding topics from the club's future plan to details of the CVA.

Members can also be involved by e-mailing anything they want asked to the Trust website at pompeytrust.com

And spokesman Scott McLachlan is hoping for many fans to get involved.

He said: 'We will again be talking to David Lampitt and will ask him to address the details of the CVA and the current off and on-field direction of the club.

'It is clear from the recent contract problems that the wages being paid to staff are still too high and that may need addressing now rather than in the summer.

'This will of course put added pressure on the team to get results.

'We'll also ask him a variety of questions garnered from our membership and fans.

'January is likely to be an interesting and, possibly, fraught month.'

Meanwhile, Brendon Bone has resigned from the Trust's board to concentrate on refereeing.

The former Trust spokesman had been voted in by members last summer.

In a statement, Bone said: 'It is with great regret I have decided to tender my resignation from both the Trust board and press spokesman position.

'This is mainly due to my progression within football refereeing and the pressure this puts on my time in order to balance both that and my home life.

'My time as a Trust board member has both been enjoyable and fruitful and I feel, in the 14 months since the Trust begun, we have made great strides towards establishing meaningful dialogue with the club as well as forging excellent links with community projects.

'I'd like to wish the other board members well in the future running of the Trust and they know they will always have my full support in their endeavours.

'Can I also thank all those members who took the time to vote for me, hoping I have not let anyone down with my resignation.'
