A meeting has been planned by Portadown’s Board of Directors to discuss the current situation at Shamrock Park.

Saturday’s defeat to Ballinamallard United marked a third consecutive loss and relegated the Ports into the bottom half of the Danske Bank Premiership.

Growing fan frustration has led to a drop in attendances - with official numbers listing around 200 supporters across the turnstiles in Saturday’s crowd of 325.

Ronnie McFall is refusing to discuss his future at the club.

“I’ve a contract until the end of the season,” said the long-serving Ports boss on Saturday. “I’m not talking about my position.

“There was nothing in the first half but we are down to the bare bones due to injuries.

“It is understandable that people are not happy but we can only concentrate on staying together and working hard.

“Every team needs its best players on the pitch.

“There is no problem in the dressing room.”
