Youth team draw
Playing Pompey at Furze Lane our Youth team drew 3-3 on Saturday 16th August.
Pompey’s Academy Coach is Mikey Harris, the ex-Salisbury manager and a long-term friend and colleague of Darrell Clarke.
This was Portsmouth’s first game in their Youth Alliance League campaign and our second. We lost our first match against Newport County who look a much improved outfit this season.
Two goals from Lewis Gill had given Portsmouth the advantage at half time. But Rovers reduced the deficit just before the break and it looked like we would secure all three points after netting twice in the second half before Pompey managed to salvage a point late on.
A full match report will be provided later this week.
