The football season might have been suspended, but that does not mean it is all quiet at Fratton Park

It was announced last month that essential works would be undertaken in the North Stand during League One's lockdown.

And PMC director Steve Cripps has revealed how they are faring, while also discussing renovations to the club offices and the removal of the last floodlight pylon.

He said: "We should be looking to complete (North Stand work) around the second week of July. The bulk of the cladding is done now and we’re just moving on to the roof.

"The offices were in poor condition and needed updating, so we’ve brought the building back to its original format.

"They should be ready for use in about four weeks – hopefully to coincide with the return of the staff.

"There’s Portsmouth branding on the outside that we’re going to remove to bring back the old mosaic Brickwoods tiling.

"Work is planned between the first and second week in June to remove the final (floodlight) column and we’re just waiting for Vodafone to remove their equipment.

"That’s the last piece of infrastructure work required for the Milton End work to start, as and when that gets planning."
