Pompey snap up kids

Pompey snap up kids

We have finally signed a striker - the draw back is the fella is only a kid, so we will not be seeing him for a while.

Pompey look to be investing in the future as well as the present with the signings of Paris Cowan-Hall and Callum Reynolds from Blue Square Premier Division side Rushden & Diamonds for an undisclosed compensation fee.

This striker is 16-year old Paris Cowan-Hall - Rushden & Diamonds club secretary Matt Wild told the Rushden & Diamonds site 'we offered a two year scholarship to Paris last season which he decided to decline upon. This then left him free to sign for another club subject to compensation being payable. After much hype surrounding the player we agreed terms with Portsmouth this week leaving the player free to sign for them'.

Wild added 'it goes without saying that we wish both players all the very best. We are obviously disappointed to lose the pair but we don't want to stand in their way in terms of their career to which we are confident they will both go on to achieve great things'.

I do not know anything about Cowan-Hall or his 17-year old team mate Reynolds, but it is refreshing to see us investing in some youth.

I had to laugh when I read the thoughts on the Rushden & Diamonds site though when they said 'the pair will now join Portsmouth's highly successful youth system' - how many players have we produced recently?

Cowan-Hall is said to have had a trial with Chelsea last season and he even trained with United during a long spell with the club - so he seems to have a pedigree that has not gone unnoticed by the very best.

PLAY UP POMPEY!

it made me have a laugh mate - christ knows who is feeding that information? but whoever it is get them here and they can be the spokesperson when we are looking to impress potential signings with our 'impressive youth system'... good to see us looking to the future tho isn't it, good luck to the kids...

fair enough, I can see it now but the official site - which is looking good by the way - was not working earlier mate, so if it isn't working it was hard for me to see...

as i said midge it was not that i did not believe you it was just the fact i had nothing confirming this for me - ive managed to sort of get the pompey site to work but its not easy... this still needs a few adjustments i think but it is looking pretty flashy...

I only mentioned it Mate, it was carpet that followed on from previous message. anyway, yes i agree the new site is awsome, but a bit slow. i assume that will improve. Have you also noticed, you can register interest in PFC TV??? Im up for that one, i fancy a bit of PFC TV. another notch up against scum lol

Evans - Right back or right midfield?

Drew Talbot and Adam Buxton are fit but Gareth Evans continues to fill in at right back. Should this change? If so where would it leave the battle between Evans and Carl Baker?
