PFC STATEMENT: CHECKATRADE TROPHY

17 November 2016

Club react to EFL fines

As has been widely reported, Portsmouth Football Club have been fined £15,000 for three breaches of selection rules in the Checkatrade Trophy.

The club have appealed this decision with the EFL.

From the outset we have made it clear that we are fundamentally opposed to the introduction of so-called ‘B’ teams into any first team league or cup competition.

In our opinion, this only serves to undermine the integrity of the competition and Pompey will continue to fight strongly against any proposals.

Finally, we would like to thank our fans for their continued support of the club in this important issue.
