It was the final hurdle in the trust’s bid to become the new Pompey owners.

And today fans gathered in the Chimes Bar within the football ground that has been the subject of High Court hearings.

PST board member Mick Williams answered fans’ questions.

He said: ‘I’ve come down just to thank the staff for what they’ve done, as I think they get forgotten when they’re as much a part of this as anyone.’
