Pompey have offered third year scholarships to three of their academy players.

Harry Kavanagh, Alfie Stanley and Eoin Teggart have been handed the chance to extend their deals at Fratton Park.

The trio are all aged 18, with full-back Kavanagh and striker Stanley hailing from Portsmouth, while winger Teggart – a Northern Ireland youth international – was born in Belfast.

Academy manager Mark Kelly said: “They all deserve this opportunity, but have to get their heads down and be ready to go again.

“When football does resume for us, they’ll have to work extremely hard to get in and around Kenny Jackett’s squad. It’s a real challenge and they have to be ready to go.

“Alfie has scored a lot of goals this season, while Harry settled down in his loan spell at Bognor and produced good performance levels.

“Eoin made his debut for the first team in the Leasing.com Trophy and has got plenty of pace and crossing ability – now he just needs to hone in on a few things.”

Stan Bridgman, Liam Kelly and Ethan Robb have not been offered deals, while Tom Bruce and Leon Pitman will remain with the club as they continue their rehabilitation from long-term injuries.

Kelly added: “We’ve got a long-term relationship with all the boys and that will continue for those who are not staying.

“It will be interesting to see what they choose to do next and we’ll be there to support them in their next steps.”

Pompey Academy would like to thank Aquacars, Milkwood Care, Jackson Groundworks, Utilita and Best 4 for their continued support.
