First Team Staff



Date of birth


In January 2023,  John Mousinho was appointed head coach on a long-term contract after leaving his position as player/coach at fellow League One side Oxford United.

After studying at the University of Notre Dame in America, Mousinho began his professional football career under former Pompey midfielder Martin Allen at Brentford.

He went on to appear for Wycombe, Stevenage, Preston and Burton before signing for Oxford in 2017.

Mousinho made more than 150 appearances for United and also took up a coaching role with the club previously.

He was elected as chairman of the Professional Footballers’ Association players’ board in May 2021, but will soon be standing down from that position to fully focus on his new role.
