Academy off on their own European tour

The academy side is something that more and more of us are paying special attention to these days - particularly as we are building something worthy of the name.

It is not just the senior side that are off on a European tour next season, the academy side are off to Denmark for their pre-season and will take on a couple of Danish sides and a Swedish one too.

This is the schedule for Ian Woan's youngsters this summer as detailed on the Pompey Site...

PLAY UP POMPEY!

The Walsall Low Down

Walsall's away record makes good reading for Pompey, who need to pick themselves up after last Saturday's defeat at Oxford.

Playing to Lowe's strengths

Lowe looked good when he came on against Rochdale but his sending off resulted in a ban - this suspension didn't apply to the Checkatrade Trophy when he scored two against Fulham.

Food for thought after Fulham

A sparse crowd was treated to a six goal thriller as Pompey and Fulham played out a 3-3 draw. The Blues missed the chance of a bonus point when losing the penalty shootout 4-3.
