Youngsters sent out on loan?

Ryan Gazet du Chattelier to Weymouth for 3-months?

There is nothing official our end from the Pompey Site but the official conference site is saying that Ryan Gazet du Chattelier has joined Weymouth on a 3-month loan deal click - here.

The striker, one of several to sign a 1-year professional contract from last season's academy side that graduated their 2-year scholarships, is expected to make his debut against Exeter this week.

1st team football, at whatever level, is going to be something that benefits Ryan and it is probably better for him to be doing this than playing in the ressies in all honesty. Playing in the blue square south will certainly give an indication if he is ready to transform from being a boy to a man, as his opponents will take no prisoners at that level!

Clearly the 18-year-old will then have to take another step-up in quality after this loan to have any chance of being part of the future plans at Pompey, but this is a start and puts him onto the road to being a professional footballer...


Callum Reynolds to Luton until January?

Once again, although there is nothing official from our end, the BBC - which is usually pretty accurate - is reporting that Callum Reynolds has joined Luton on loan until January.

Reynolds was brought to Pompey as part of Paul Hart's academy side from Rushden, with him known to Hart anyway, and is a professional now with Pompey but has not yet made his 1st team breakthrough.

The 19-year-old is another that has a good reputation, but is again one that needed to go out on loan to gain some experience, and again, as mentioned before, doing this at a non-league level is not a bad place to start but Callum will also need to do this at a higher level before we know just how ready he is.

Good luck to Ryan at Weymouth and Callum at Luton - assuming 'reports' are true, time will tell what their futures will be with Pompey and the professional game...
