9 offered scholarships in Awford's revolution

The future of Pompey, or at least hopefully the future of Pompey, has taken another step forward.

As it stands Andy Awford is only here until the summer - although I suspect that it will be a longer-term appointment - although the first moves forward have been made with 9 U16 players offered 2-year scholarship deals.

These are all local(ish) players, with 3 of them from Portsmouth including Nick Awford, a relative of Andy's perhaps?

Full details, as issued on The Pompey Site, can be seen below...


Nine Offered Scholarships

Pompey have offered two-year scholarships to nine under-16 players.

The scholarship programme will see the youngsters start full-time at Fratton Park in July.

The club have offered scholarships to: Tom Fry, Liam Triggs, Jack Maloney, Nick Awford, Josh Warren, Stuart Moore, Kane Cook, George Branford and Adam Webster.

Fry, a goalkeeper, Warren, a defender, and Awford, a midfielder, are all from Portsmouth. Triggs (defender), Maloney (forward) and Moore (goalkeeper) come from the Isle of Wight. Cook is a midfielder from Basingstoke, Webster a defender from Chichester and Branford a midfielder from Ashington in West Sussex.

Blues academy manager Andy Awford said: "All the boys have done very well to get this far and we're looking forward to seeing how they adapt to full-time training."

    I think it's a good thing, the thing that worry's me is the organisation they are enrolling into. It has always been poor and unless Awfull is going to radically change things, it will remain poor. The appointment of DH does not inspire me- at all.

    I believe Nick Awford is a relative but dont see it making a difference as he was offered his scholorship before Andy was Academy Manager
