Portsmouth defender goes out on loan 

Matt Casey has joined Gosport Borough on loan.

The Pompey defender goes straight into Craig McAllister’s squad for Saturday’s FA Cup first-qualifying round tie at Sittingbourne.

Casey, 18, was at Weymouth on a temporary basis earlier this season but returned to Fratton Park after making just two appearances.

The Botley centre-back has now linked up with Borough on a youth loan.

It means the Blues have the option to recall Casey when he is required.
