Hard on the heels of their Checkatrade Trophy Final, Portsmouth have packed a petition being run by Change
The petition is for the winners of this seasons Checkatrade Trophy to be allowed to play in Europa League next season. Directly after the win, the pompey official website tweeted out the link, adding “Worth a Try”.
And why not, given that it is a cup competition. Older readers of this post, may recall that going back some years, the Welsh FA’s Welsh Cup offered for the winners of that competition entry into the UEFA cup, which younger readers of this post, now know as the Europa League.
While at first sight and face value it might seem tongue in cheek, what objections could there be?
Footballers strive to play at the highest level in the best stadiums and Wembley rates as one the finest stadiums, it obviously holds cup finals and for a lot of players in yesterdays checkatrade final, it was the first time they had played on the hallow turf.
So, why not follow it up with a chance to play in European competition and showcase your talents on one the best stages in the world
Will Pompey Succeed? Watch this space…
