Bogle joined Pompey from parent club Cardiff City on a deal until the end of the season in January 2019, after spending the first half of the campaign on loan at Birmingham City.

The striker represented West Bromwich Albion, Birmingham City and Celtic at youth level, before his senior career began with non-league side Hinckley United. 

A move to Solihull Moors followed, where he netted 62 goals in 111 appearances for the Midlands club, earning him a move to Grimsby Town. 

Scored 16 times in 44 National League appearances during 2015/16, as the Mariners secured a return to the Football League via their 3-1 play-off win over Forest Green Rovers, with Bogle scoring twice on the day.

Another Wembley final followed a week later, against FC Halifax in the EFL Trophy, although this time it was Grimsby who found themselves on the wrong end of a 1-0 scoreline.

Continued his prolific scoring spell for the Lincolnshire side during their maiden season back in League Two, netting 19 times in 27 games, before being snapped up by Wigan Athletic at the halfway stage of the 2016/17 campaign.

Found the target three times in 14 appearances for the Latics, who were relegated from the Championship that season. 

A move to Cardiff City in the summer of 2017 followed, where he signed a three-year deal, as he netted three times in 12 appearances for Neil Warnock’s side before enjoying a loan move to Peterborough for the final few months of 2017/18.

Was sent out on a season-long loan at Birmingham last summer, which was terminated in January 2019 to make way for his move to the south coast.

Bogle was called up to the England C team in November 2014, whilst playing for Solihull Moors, to play against Estonia U23s, opening the scoring after just four minutes.

He also provided an assist for Harry Beautyman to notch England’s second goal in a 4-2 win, before being substituted late on to a rapturous ovation.
