Portsmouth MP's congratulate Pompey on their promotion to League One.

Penny Mordaunt, Portsmouth North MP, punched the air when the result was announced on Twitter.

She said: ‘This is a fantastic achievement for any club, but when you consider the events of the last few years it’s truly amazing.

‘Congratulations to everyone at Pompey and all its faithful supporters: League One and the community club.

‘Today is another great day in Pompey’s history and a reminder that our best days still lie ahead.’

Portsmouth South MP Flick Drummond added: ‘It is testament to the fans and the wider Portsmouth community that the club is still in existence.

‘Hopefully, this promotion is the start of the good times coming back to Fratton Park.’

Pompey now have three games left to play. The first is against Cambridge United at Fratton Park, on Saturday.
