Portsmouth skipper, Michael Doyle, made a pact with the chairman earlier in the season in terms of funding a post-season holiday, according to The Portsmouth News.

On the last week, where Portsmouth were the outside favourites to win the league on the final day of the season, the chairman, Iain McInnes, made a pact with Doyle to fund a post-season trip. Before the game, it was understood that the holiday destination would be Marbella, but nothing had been finalised.

However, on the last day of the season, Pompey was crowned the champions of Sky Bet League Two, and the outside favourites seized the trophy which marked an impressive and successful season, in comparison to what the south coast club has faced in recent years.

Doyle has reminded the Chairman of his pact and pledge to the skipper to help fund the trip in the celebrations after the game, but the Blues’ skipper is keen to bring the chairman on a celebratory holiday with the players, according to The Portsmouth News.

“We only had two days of celebrating after we won promotion”, Doyle said.

“I told him we were going away and if there was any chance he could help us?

“He said if we win the league he would give us an amount of money. So I was looking at him during the game and was mouthing the figure at him.

“He came in after the game, saw me and laughed about how much we’d cost him! He said the amount of money, and I told him it’s going to be well spent because he’s coming with us!”
