Pompey's Wonderkid

Pompey's Wonderkid


Pompey Pages-

Pompey's secret star has set his sights on making an impact at Fratton Park after upstaging Europe's finest young talent.


Northern Ireland teenager Daryl Fordyce has caused a sensation in his homeland after taking the European under-19 Championships by storm.

Fordyce finished as the competition's top scorer in qualification thanks to an amazing four-goal blast against Serbia and Montenegro.

That came after the Blues midfielder was converted to a striker by former Manchester United star Mal Donaghy for his country.
Fordyce's achievement was made all the more incredible after he went on the goal spree straight from a three-month spell out with a knee injury.

Now he is setting his sights on gaining Harry Redknapp's attention after the
greatest moment of his fledgling career.
Fordyce said: 'To play for my country and score four goals in one game was pretty amazing.'Now I want to get back to Portsmouth in pre-season and start things on a positive note.'

Despite the plaudits, Fordyce promised he would be keeping his feet firmly on the ground.

He has yet to get near the first team at Pompey and spent a month on loan at Bournemouth last season.

He feels he will have to go away from Fratton to get more first-team football next season.

But he is hopeful he can catch the eye as he enters the final year of his current deal at Pompey.

Will Harry give him a chance? Bournemouth fans how did he do?

Main man for Pompey? I wouldn't think so

Harsh? Maybe, but do I really feel ex-Middlesbrough, Doncaster and Oldham forward Main will be in Pompey's 1st team, becoming a key member of Jackett's starting XI? Well, no.

Apparently, having stolen the League Two title from Plymouth, we'll not be taking the Pilgrims' best player, ex-Celtic midfielder Carey, currently out-of-contract at Home Park.
