Storey spent the first half of the 2020-21 campaign on loan at Gosport Borough where he made a sound impression. However, his spell at Privett Park was cut short after non-elite sport was curtailed amid the coronavirus crisis.

He’s due to go on trial at Millwall – where former Pompey defender and first-team coach Paul Robinson is assistant manager of their development squad – during pre-season.
