Really? That's interesting. Is this the one where we were giving a trial to a potentially new player?

I know it was supposed to be a secret, but did we tell Swindon about it? Otherwise we could just say we beat Barcelona in a top secret friendly.

The 4th was scored by a midfield player called "Andy Henry" apparently he is now locked in SC's house guarded by dogs

I hope it was a half-decent Swindon side and Benji's getting back to match fit.

From the OS: Benjani scored a hat-trick as Pompey beat Swindon 4-0 in a behind-closed-doors friendly at the Blues’ training ground on Tuesday The hosts were three goals up at the break, adding a fourth in the second half against the League Two club’s reserve side. The game was organised as Pompey – like last season – are not competing in a reserve league.

I heard the fourth was scored by a trialist called T. Sheringham. But because that was too obvious, they renamed him Teddy S.

wots is 'The guy played and has been offered a contract. Due to be unveiled tomorrow.
Still no name, as he has been offered contracts by Leeds and Newcastle as well but he wants Pompey as it's closer to home.'
