Several members of the Pompey squad were involved for their loan clubs over the weekend.
Jack Fox & Maxwell Hurst
Defender Fox has joined his academy team-mate Hurst at Wessex League Premier side Baffins Milton Rovers.
The former made an instant debut as both players were included in the starting line-up against Sherborne at the PMC Stadium.
And it proved to be a winning start, with the home side eventually winning 3-2 after twice being pegged back.
The goalkeeper featured for Chelmsford in their FA Cup fourth qualifying round tie against Whitby on home soil.

CCFC 0-0 WTFC 30' #TheClarets
It finished 2-2, meaning the sides will face off again in a replay on Tuesday evening for the right to visit Bristol Rovers next month.
It was a disappointing week for Gosport, who let slip a two-goal lead to draw with Dorchester at Privett Park on Wednesday night.

Dorchester test Steward!
A good run sees Dorchester’s skipper - Ngalo escape Jordan and allows the attacker a free run at goal. Taking a shot, the effort was heading into the bottom corner. Forcing Steward to get down low, and deflecting the effort!
Pompey’s keeper started that game and Saturday’s 2-0 defeat at Salisbury, although Boro still sit top of the Southern League Premier.
The left-back started for Horndean in their midweek 1-0 victory over Burgess Hill in the Isthmian League South-East Division.
He helped the side keep a clean sheet to record their first win of the season, climbing off the foot of the table in the process.
Laidlaw then provided an assist for Zack Willett on Saturday, but despite twice fighting from behind, Horndean were beaten 3-2 at Sevenoaks.
