Maloney scored 16 goals in 22 appearances for Mark Kelly's Academy side last season.

He also made his first-team debut when coming off the bench in Pompey's 2-0 Checkatrade Trophy victory at Southend.

Maloney's fine form saw him rewarded with a third-year scholarship along with Joe Hancott and Bradley Lethbridge.
