We are delighted to announce that the PST Shareholder Wall of Fame will be officially unveiled at Fratton Park before the Hartlepool game on Saturday 17th of December.
The Wall of Fame, which is situated along the North Stand exterior wall, details the name of every shareholder that helped the remarkable effort to save Portsmouth Football Club in April 2013.
PFC President and PST Board member Eric Coleborn has worked tirelessly and also funded the wall at his own personal expense. We are sure that every shareholder and member of the Trust would like to express their thanks to Eric for his work.
Eric said of the Wall's completion "It is a great honour to have been asked to work on this iconic project. The club in all areas is unrecognizable from the club we inherited some three and a half years ago. Thanks to the hard work of Mark Catlin and his staff we now have a club to be immensely proud of. Without the people who are named on these boards this club would have been liquidated, over 100 years of history gone forever. It is my opinion that we have the greatest supporters in the world and I would like to say 'THANK YOU' to each and every one of you for saving 'OUR' club."
PST Chair Ashley Brown said "Many people will never realise or accept how close Pompey was to disappearing. Our beloved club is still here today because of the fans who stood up to be counted both financially as well as showing their support in other ways, the spirit of Pompey is hard to break and it was shown to its fullest here. The wall which should be here for years to come proudly shows the names of the Trust members, Presidents and syndicates who between them own their club and are now part of Pompey's rich history. We must also acknowledge and thank Eric Coleborn who as a Trust member and president has kindly funded the creation of this wall."
The PST would formally like to invite every Shareholder, member and fan to come along to the official unveiling at 12pm and join in the celebrations, additionally we would like to invite 3 Shareholders to be involved in the unveiling group and enjoy a few perks on the day. The PST Board ask that if you are interested then please Email [email protected] to apply for one of the 3 places*.
Hope to see as many of you there as possible.
The PST Board
