Donald Vass Appointed Chair Of The PST

33-year-old Donald Vass has become the youngest chairman in the history of the Pompey Supporters' Trust.

Simon Colebrook heads in the opposite direction and has stood down from his 6-year tenure as chair of the PST, now set to become treasurer.

Vass has served on the PST board since 2017 and is also part of Portsmouth FC's Heritage & Advisory board, as well as fulfilling a role as secretary for the Tony Goodall Fans' Conference.

He has become the 5th and so far youngest sitting chairperson of the Pompey Supporters' Trust, who have previously had Jo Collins, Ashley Brown, Ken Malley and the aforementioned Simon Colebrook at the helm.

Back in September, the Jimmy Dickinson statue was unveiled at Fratton Park and that was a project led by the PST, in association with Portsmouth FC and the Pompey History Society too. Vass was at the forefront of helping to bring the Blues legend's legacy back to life.

Speaking with Express FM's Jake Smith, Vass outlined his aims and objectives:

"We really fortunate to have a really rich and varied history at our club that we're really proud of - We want to preserve and celebrate that and pass that on to younger generations.

"One of the first things I'm going to do is set up a survey for fans just so we can better understand what your priorities are and what are the things that you care about, what matters to you, so that can inform our engagement with the club."
