Pompey have issued a statement, via their lawyers, on The Pompey Site in response to the high court rejecting our application to have the winding up petition dropped...
An appeal seems likely from the sounds of it, and we have 7-days to do this, but 'if/when' we will does not seem clear - if we are stalling for time, what are we stalling for?
The statement can be found below...
PLAY UP POMPEY!
Pompey Lawyers' Statement
Neumans LLP, the solicitors acting for Portsmouth Football Club, can confirm that earlier today Mr Justice Newey, sitting in the High Court, dismissed Portsmouth Football Club's application to strike out HM Revenue & Customs' winding-up petition.
This means that it will now (subject to the outcome of any appeal to the Court of Appeal) continue to an eventual hearing of the petition.
Despite ruling against the club, Mr Justice Newey commented that he had found the issues in the case "difficult" and he granted Portsmouth FC permission to appeal his ruling.
This means that the judge considered any appeal to the Court of Appeal would have a 'real prospect of success'.
If an appeal were to succeed, this would result in the judge's ruling being reversed and HMRC's petition being struck out, without the petition proceeding to a final hearing.
Having been given permission to appeal, the club now has seven days to lodge an appeal. At present, the club is not able to estimate when any appeal as may be made will be heard by the Court of Appeal.
Portsmouth Football Club added: "We would like to once again thank supporters for their continued support and patience.
"The owner, the board and associates would like to assure fans that they are working hard towards a positive solution and are confident that this matter will be resolved in our favour."
