POMPEY administrator Trevor Birch is urgently seeking a meeting with Portpin and the Pompey Supporters’ Trust after Balram Chainrai withdrew his takeover bid.
In a statement, Mr Birch said: ‘We note Portpin’s statement that it has withdrawn its bid for Portsmouth Football Club.
‘In reviewing the options available to the club, we also note Portpin’s offer to support any efforts to save Portsmouth in the forthcoming days. We are therefore urgently seeking a meeting with Portpin and the Pompey Supporters’ Trust to determine if the Trust’s bid can be brought to a successful conclusion.
‘We are working behind the scenes with Michael Appleton to enable the club to field as strong a team as possible for its first League match on Saturday.’
