Academy hot-shot pens deal
Conor Chaplin has signed his first professional contract with Pompey.
The 17-year-old forward has excelled for the under-18 side this season, netting 11 goals in 11 appearances.
Academy manager Mark Kelly said: “This is a thoroughly deserved reward for his recent performances.
“He’s worked extremely hard, produced consistent displays and is scoring goals on a regular basis.”
Chaplin bagged a hat-trick as the young Blues triumphed 6-1 at Cheltenham on Saturday.
