THREE buses were charged to park at Fratton Park for Pompey’s match with Carlisle yesterday.

It is understood that the Carlisle team coach and two Pompey in the Community buses were each charged £20 to park outside the ground.

The land was owned by former Pompey owner Sacha Gaydamak but it is now in the hands of administrators.

A deal had been reached for property developer Stuart Robinson to buy the land.

Colin Farmery, spokesman for the Pompey Supporters Trust, said it’s still unclear what took place yesterday.

‘It was all a bit of a mystery that it happened,’ he said.

‘As far as we are concerned there is no problem with the completion of the purchase of the land.

‘It was nothing to do with the administrators, it just seemed that the agent who was running it decided to do this.

‘It came as much as a surprise to me as anybody else.

‘It was a normal match day.’

The administrators who own the land were unavailable for comment.
