The professional ranks at Pompey have at least been boosted by two as academy duo Lewis Stockford and Lewis Tallack have signed 1-year professional contracts.
This, technically, now makes them 1st team players although will Steve Cotterill count, and use them, as such?
He has already said that the clubs academy hopefuls, some of which are rated quite highly, will not be brought into the 1st team squad.
Having completed their 2-year scholarships and been offered professional contracts do the two Lewis' fall into this bracket though?
Either way best of luck to them.
Anyway, this is what The Pompey Site said about their signings...
PLAY UP POMPEY!
Academy Pair Sign Pro Deals
Academy duo Lewis Stockford and Lewis Tallack have signed one-year professional contracts.
The pair have both completed a two-year scholarship programme with Pompey.
Stockford is an 18-year-old midfielder who comes from Portsmouth, while Tallack - also 18 - is a defender who was born in Luton.
Academy manager Andy Awford said: "They've both worked extremely hard since I've been at the club and deserve the opportunity to progress.
"Now they've got another year at the club to see if they can move up to the next level."
