Training change for Portsmouth

Portsmouth have confirmed the club will start training at

Fratton Park in February as administrators continue to cut

costs.

Pompey have been training at the Wellington Sports Ground for 11

years, but the stricken club can no longer afford to rent the

facility.

The League One strugglers have been in serious financial trouble

after going into administration twice since 2010.

Portsmouth are also looking at other sites in the city in a bid

to ease the burden on their home ground.

A statement from the club read: “Portsmouth Football Club will

stop using the training facilities at the Wellington Sports Ground

in Eastleigh at the end of the month.

“Going forward, the club will use Fratton Park and will also

look to use other facilities in the city.”
