A dozen leave Pompey

A dozen leave Pompey

Decisions have been made on the out of contract, or will be this summer, players at Fratton.

Andy Awford has decided that 9 of the 1st team squad from last season are not part of his plans going forward so they have been informed they are not getting offered new deals.

Leaving are...

George Branford
Ashley Harris
Jake Jervis
Yassin Moutaouakil
Marcos Painter
Thery Racon
Phil Smith
Liam Triggs
Josh Warren

Not too many surprises really, right?

I would guess that Smith being released means that John Sullivan is coming back after his loan spell with Cambridge.

Also moving on, well returning to their parent clubs, are the players we had on loan to end the season...

Daniel Alfei (Swansea)
Trevor Carson (Bury)
Michael Drennan (Aston Villa)
Danny Hollands (Charlton)

I would expect that Carson will be coming back when his deal with Bury ends at the end of next month and all being well so will Hollands?

Talks, in the hopes of agreeing new deals with them, are carrying on with...

Jed Wallace
Nicky Shorey
Bondz N'Gala
Nick Awford
Jack Maloney

Also staying at Fratton next season, after the option to extend their deals for the year that we had in our favour, will be...

Ryan Bird
Adam Webster

1-year professional contracts have been added to these academy graduates...

Ben Close
Bradley Tarbuck

But it has been decided that these academy players do not have a future at Fratton and have been released...

Jae Heon Kim
Harry Medway
Lewis Horsburgh

Awford had this to say on The Pompey Site: 'I'd like to thank all of the released players for their service to this club and wish them every success for the future.'

What do we make of this then guys?

Northampton (h) - Securing home advantage?

Some could view this as a 'dead rubber!' It isn't as Champions Northampton will want to end on a high and Pompey will want 'an advantage' against Plymouth in the play-offs. Right?

Pompey MotM at Hartlepool

Pompey went into the penultimate game with a slim chance of a top 3 finish. A 2-0 win at Hartlepool saw the Blues do what we needed but wins for others ended those chances.

On this day in history...6th May

A look back at this day in history, and what was happening with Pompey courtesy of our sister site PompeyRama, 6th May.

Jeepers keepers! Freebie options explored

An emergency loan arrival of a goalie has been ruled out by the Football League but this doesn't mean a free agent cannot be signed by Pompey should a suitable option be found?
