The club has also announced that its new Chief Executive Officer will be Mark Catlin. He has previous football experience working as a Commercial Director at Bury, overseeing growth in revenues and attendances, as well as being part of the club’s promotion to League.
Mark and I first discussed him wanting to help the PST bid in the autumn of 2012 and he has been working voluntarily since then to support what we are trying to do. He gave us the vital football management experience the bid team lacked. He understands our community ethos and we are sure he can drive the club to where we want it to be.”
We are delighted to have a character of Guy’s calibre in charge. He understands the club and what we are trying to achieve and he has shown in the past few months what he can do when he has the opportunity to work with a settled group of players.”

The Pompey Supporters' Trust's bid to buy Portsmouth FC remains on course, despite a further adjournment of the court case which will value Fratton Park.It was confirmed on Wednesday afternoon that the case, scheduled for January 31, had been put back a further fortnight to February 14.
The new delay is very frustrating for the PST bid team and we share that feeling with many fans I am sure.
However the hearing is not directly PST's affair, but we see it as a move which helps us to get our bid over the line.
Our bid is virtually complete and the additional time will allow the final i's to be dotted and t's to be crossed, before the case is put before a High Court Judge. We remain confident we will take control of the club by early March.
