Portsmouth youngster to provide timelyÂ boost with welcome return from injury
Pompey loanee Matt Casey is closing in on a Gosport Borough return.
The talented 18-year-old centre-back fractured his collarbone when making his Gosport bow in an FA Cup clash earlier in the campaign.
But he is now training again and will be a very important addition to the Borough ranks.
He's on track to make a return in Gosport's next game.
They host Taunton Town on Saturday, November 17 in the Southern League premier division south.
Borough player-boss Craig McAllister is looking forward to having the Pompey youngster back in his team after a very bright debut.
He said: '˜Matt Casey is now back from his fractured collarbone.
'˜He's going to be back with us.
'˜The injuryÂ wasÂ really unfortunate because he came in and didÂ really well for us in his only game.
'˜Matt is back training, he's been back for a few weeks, so we'll see where he is in the next week or two.' Casey is highly thought of Fratton Park.
He was handed a third year scholarship by Pompey in May 2018, following a good two-year spell within the club's under-18s.
Gosport are currently 14thÂ in the league but have been struggling to get wins in recent weeks.
