Alan McLoughlin is Pompey’s new first-team coach.

The Blues legend has agreed to move up from the Academy to plug the hole vacated by Andy Awford.

The 46-year-old gave an indication of things to come when he helped take the players for the first day of pre-season training last week.

Now he has been officially appointed to complete Guy Whittingham’s backroom staff as Pompey prepare for the League Two campaign.
