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.
