Pompey still hopeful on Miles deal

The Wiltshire Gazette and Herald: Miles Storey Miles Storey

PORTSMOUTH boss Andy Awford remains hopeful of completing a loan deal for Swindon striker Miles Storey.

The youngster was at Fratton Park on Tuesday for discussions over a season-long stay, as reported by the Advertiser earlier this week.

However, the move has not yet been finalised, with the ongoing court case involving current chairman Lee Power and former chief Jed McCrory thought to have played a significant part.

“We are still trying to reach an agreement with Swindon,” Awford told The News in Portsmouth.

“Miles is not allowed to train with us yet as he is still under contract at Swindon so he can’t.

“We are trying to discuss the situation with their people at the moment.

“Hopefully we can get it sorted and we can get Miles down here to play for us this season.’ Storey has made 35 appearances for the Robins since coming through the ranks at the Country Ground, with his brace against Aston Villa and the last-minute winner against Coventry the highlights of his career to date.

The 20-year-old also spent spells on loan at Shrewsbury and Salisbury last season.

Storey should be playing for Swindon next season in L1... Not out on loan in L2.

it is a sad situation, and even if Lp does win the case and even if jed the dwarf pays costs LP does not I feel have enough money to run STFC and sooner or later it will lead toadministration if not liquidation
It don´t add up as gates we get compared to other clubs in our division are good.
OK we inherited PDC¨s crazy buying/contracts/wag
es and general waste of money.
I think LP has tried on the cheap to sort it out and to be honest we did well last season surprised a lot of us.
Yet who will invest in a club like STFC with the past History we have????
I feel a lot of posters think all will be ok if this case is won ,for me don´t believe a word of it.
I think Bills won´t be paid /players wages will also be problem.
sad as it is with all the will in the world even the hard core of fans will eventually say enough is enough.The Swindon council will sell the CG and build an office complex etc.Then if Swindon council had anything about them they would give the CG to new investors who will put up a bond of a suitable size.
who know´s just think STFC have reached a final desination.
Fans can slagg me off but wake up realize what the likes of this jed has done,we had the chance with Black but PDC was not the right guy
