New Portsmouth Director Appointed

The Pompey Supporters Trust has appointed spokesman John Kimbell to the Portsmouth board.

Kimbell’s appointment comes a month after Mick Williams’ resignation from both the PST and Portsmouth boards over a “matter of principle.” Williams was an integral part of the Supporters Trust’s buyout of the club but his departure has caused some anger from fans.

However, after passing the Football League’s Owners and Directors test, 39-year-old Kimbell has taken up his new position. Kimbell owns media agency Navigate Digital and has been a PST board member since 2013. Kimbell told the PST website:

“It’s an incredibly proud day for me.  I’ve been coming to Fratton Park since I was seven have always wanted to be involved as I possibly can at the club. I am joining the club board as a PST representative so I will be working alongside Ashley Brown and Mark Trapani to ensure we’re properly representing our shareholders at club board level.” 

PST chairman Ken Malley was pleased with the appointment of Kimbell, also telling the PST website: “In John we have a young, dynamic replacement who was our unanimous choice to replace Mick.”

Pompey face League Two leaders Shrewsbury Town at Fratton Park on Saturday.
