Two of Pompey’s academy players have received international recognition.

Defender Harvey Rew has been called up to the Wales under-17 squad to take part in the Telki Cup later this month.

The 15-year-old will be in the party travelling to Hungary for matches against Croatia, Czech Republic and the host nation.

Meanwhile, attacking midfielder Alfie Bridgman, 14, has been chosen to take part in an England under-15s training camp at Loughborough in August.

"It’s fantastic to see that the work we’re doing in the academy is being recognised."

Academy manager Mark Kelly said: “It’s great news to see that our young boys are starting to push for international call-ups again.

“We have got some good groups of boys at this club – and lots of talented individuals in those groups.

“It’s fantastic to see that the work we’re doing in the academy is being recognised and hopefully we’ll see more of that going forward.”
