Pompey's new man: I'm joining a club in touch with community

New Pompey chief executive Andre Cullen says he is coming to a football club very much in touch with its community. And he says he is very aware of the club's heritage and traditions.
The MK Dons CEO was announced as the new Fratton Park chief on the same day it was announced Mark Catlin was leaving to take up a new job with the Eisners.
Cullen told the Pompey website: 'I feel extremely privileged and incredibly excited to be given the opportunity by Michael Eisner and the Portsmouth FC board to succeed Mark Catlin as the club’s new CEO.
'The role comes with a massive responsibility to both the city of Portsmouth and to the football club. I do very much recognise the club’s rich heritage, strong traditions and, most critically, the dynamic connection with its passionate supporters and the local community, who all too recently came together, in remarkable fashion, to save their football club from going out of existence.
'Mark and his excellent team of colleagues, along with the support of so many others, have from these foundations, delivered a sustainable and vibrant football club and importantly, one which remains very much in touch with its community.
'Together with Danny and Nicky Cowley, I will try to do my very best to develop the outstanding work already undertaken by so many. I will work as hard as I can and contribute towards the delivery of an exciting future for everyone connected with Pompey.”
Pompey chairman Michael Eisner told the Blues website: 'Andy has done a terrific job at MK Dons and his extensive experience in football, business and marketing will help us at Pompey in our relentless pursuit of success on and off the pitch. He has huge shoes to fill in Mark’s absence, but I know he can do it – especially with Mark’s help in the transition and beyond.'
