Pack joins the youth exodus
Another youngster who has no future with Pompey is Marlon Pack.
He has been told, which again like with others whilst with a little disappointment from my thinking is not at all surprising; he has no future at the club.
Steve Cotterill has, and again I do not like the way this has come about - The Pompey Site should, for me, be the area for such announcements, told The News today that the 19-year-old has no future at Fratton.
Pack, like the others that has left, was not going to get a look-in so it was felt it was best for him to move on and with a contract offer on the table from Cheltenham, where he will play regularly, he needs to take it.
To be honest I have not seen enough of Pack, and I guess to be fair most of the other youngsters cast aside, but he seemed a decent enough prospect from what I did see so perhaps another year or two on a contract with us, with him going out on loan again next season, 'might' not have hurt but the decision has been made and I wish him well.
At least he can say that he pulled on the blue shirt and scored a belter of a penalty in the league cup game against Palace earlier in the season when we won the shootout!
To leave a club, your local club, after more than a decade with them cannot be easy though.
Cotterill is the manager, he makes these calls, lets just hope that they do not come back to haunt us in the future...
PLAY UP POMPEY!
