Blues keep tabs on fledgling non-league talent

- The News

POMPEY are showing interest in Bromley teenager Liam Vincent.

understand­s that the Blues have been keeping tabs on the leftback ahead of a potential summer move to Fratton Park.

Vincent has come through the youth ranks at the Ravens after joining the club at under-14 level.

Having signed first-team forms at Hayes Lane last September, the 18-year-old has featured seven times during Bromley's National League promotion push.

Vincent made his debut off the bench in a 2-0 win over King's Lynn in February before being handed his maiden start in a 2-2 draw with Wealdstone last month.

Vincent also delivered an impressive performanc­e in Bromley under-18s' shock 2-1 win over Pompey in the FA Youth Cup at Fratton Park in December.

He bagged the visitors' equaliser in the first half before sending in the corner that led to Ben Krauhaus’ winner.

As things stand,

Lee Brown is the only specialist left-back tied down heading into the 2021-22 campaign.

Charlie Daniels’ deal expires in June while youngster Harvey Rew has been informed he’s being released.

Should Vincent earn a switch to PO4, he will be the third player to move to Pompey from Bromley in four years.

Louis Dennis was recruited in the summer of 2018 on a free transfer.

However, the forward made only eight appearance­s for Kenny Jackett’s side before being sold to Leyton Orient a year later.

Meanwhile, the Blues purchased Reeco HackettFai­rchild for an undisclose­d fee in January 2020.
