Pompey Academy Held Their First Showcase At Fratton Park

U9s and U10s presented at half-time of the MK Dons fixture

21 December 2022

Pompey Academy's U9 and U10 squads were presented to Blues supporters to celebrate their achievements so far this season.

The presentation took place at half-time of the home fixture against MK Dons last weekend with a number of activities taking place.

An interview with lead foundation phase coach Rob Maynard was played, discussing the foundation phase objectives before clips of the youngsters' best bits of the season so far were shown during their lap of appreciation.

Reflecting on the event, academy manager Greg Miller said: "It was fantastic to start our academy showcase events last weekend, with our U9s and U10s getting the opportunity to be presented to a packed-out Fratton Park.

"This kind of an occasion is great because it aligns not only with our academy objectives and values for this season, but also strengthens the relationship we have between the football club and our academy sides, too.

"It was a fantastic experience for our youngest age groups and one that will only benefit them and hopefully inspire them to be playing at Fratton Park as first team players in a few years' time!"

This event will be the first of a number of academy showcase presentations with the academy for the 2022/23 season, so look out on the club's social media channels to see when the next presentation will be taking place.
