Harvey Hughes has been named CEFA (Community & Education Football Alliance) Male Player of the Season at the 2019 EFL Awards.
The youngster – who represents Pompey in the Community – was presented with the trophy by Blues star Matt Clarke at the London ceremony.
Introduced ahead of the current season, the Community & Education Football Alliance league is open to those registered on a post-16 education pathway with their club’s community organisation.
It provides playing opportunities for young people, regardless of ability, and the chance to participate in a football competition governed professionally by the EFL.
"It’s a dream to be here and just shows that hard work pays off."
Hughes said: “It feels amazing – I think it’s testament to what the community has done for me personally.
“It’s a dream to be here and just shows that hard work pays off. I’m a proud man – and I think my family will be proud too.”
Pompey were also named Checkatrade Community Club of the Year for the second time in three seasons.
But Clarke missed out on a place in the Football Manager EFL Team of the Season, having already been named in the League One side.
