Trevor Birch has revealed his deadline for June 2 on a web chat. He was asked: ‘On what date does the company cease to exist if no new funding is forthcoming?’
He replied: ‘You cannot put a date on it. We need to find a solution in my opinion before June 2, the date of the AGM of the Football League.’
Mr Birch confirmed he is working ‘two potential interested parties’ – plus the Pompey Supporters’ Trust’ – but said talks were not at an advanced stage.
He said the two parties had approached him over ‘the last two or three weeks’ and do not have history of owning football clubs in the UK or abroad.
