Packs will include the term sheet from Tornante, a detailed Trust board statement on the offer, advice from legal advisors, a presidents’ statement and a report from the club executive.

Also enclosed will be a letter from Trust chairman and club board member Ashley Brown, along with a ballot paper and details of how to vote.

The Trust said in a statement: ‘We wish to inform our members that there will be a short delay in members receiving the information pack relating to the proposed purchase of Portsmouth Football Club by Tornante.

‘The pack has grown significantly with additional statements received from the presidents and the club during the past few days, as well as additional content added following a meeting between the PST board and the presidents before our game against Cambridge on Saturday.

‘We felt it was important that our members had as much information as possible.

‘We now anticipate packs to be posted by 1st Class mail on Friday, meaning they should arrive by Monday May 1.’
