The attacking talent netted twice and created another in last night's 3-0 victory at Privett Park in front of 1,010 supporters.

It was a magnificent display from the ex-Bromley man, who arrived at Fratton Park this summer.

Having been an unused substitute in the weekend defeat at Stevenage, he was handed a full 90 minutes for the Pompey XI on duty against Craig McAllister's side.

And Academy manager Mark Kelly, who oversaw the visitors, was impressed with the 25-year-old's showing.

He said: '˜I thought we did very well and the babies applied themselves brilliantly as well.

'˜Louis' bright, he's a clever footballer, I think everybody saw that last night.

'˜He brings people into play, he feeds it, I thought he played some great through balls in the first half and we didn't exploit it.

'˜There was some clever play from him, he got on the scoresheet and grabbed an assist as well with a great feed for little Oscar (Johnson) on the outside and a good finish from him.

'˜Louis showed he can play and is a bright footballer.

'˜It was a tight game, Gosport have Macca and Tubbsy taking control and hopefully can get the club to where they want to go.

'˜They have a few lads who have been around the block a little bit, so weren't that naive, and we had to work hard.

'˜And when you work hard and add a little bit of quality, then you get what you want.'
