Mark Kelly has been appointed Pompey’s new Academy manager.

The former Blues winger has been chosen to replace Andy Awford following his promotion to first-team boss.

With Paul Hardyman also leaving the youth set-up this summer to follow Awford, the hunt has been on to recruit Academy staff.

Now Kelly has stepped up from his role as youth coach to take on the job.
