The fans of Portsmouth Football Club who have put forward a bid to save the team from liquidation have today confirmed who would become their new chairman - local businessman and lifelong Pompey fan Iain McInness.
Today he appealed to fans to back the bid which hopes to prevent the club from going under. Administrator Trevor Birch has given a deadline of next Friday.
The Trust's bid is one of two currently on the table - the second comes from Portpin, the company belonging to former owner Balran Chanrai. Negotiations continue with three remaining senior players who need to be off the clubs books in order for any bid to be successful.
The Portsmouth Supporters Trust will reveal the final details of their bid to buy Portsmouth Football Club later today.
Administrator Trevor Birch is also considering an offer from the club's previous owner Balram Chainrai.
Mr Chainrai recently warned Pompey’s top earners that if they don't strike a deal over pay the club will fold.
