Meet the new guys.. Posted by kylewhitworth ⋅ January 24, 2013 ⋅
Another month, another round of departures and arrivals at Pompey.
Some popular figures have gone, some not so popular have joined them. Some new faces have joined, and some blasts from the past have returned.
Read on to bring yourself right up to date with the new arrivals…
James Keene – Striker
The 27 year old made two appearances for Pompey between 2004 and 2006. He then had spells at Kidderminster, Bournemouth and Boston. Since 2007 he has plied his trade in Sweden, and now returns to Fratton Park.
Shaun Cooper – Defender
29 year old Isle of Wight born Cooper was a product of the Pompey youth academy, and made 7 first team appearances in all. He then had loan spells at Leyton Orient and Kidderminster before making 211 appearances for Bournemouth. He has since played for Crawley, but moves back to his first club.
Yassin Moutaouakil – Defender
Moutaouakil is a 26 year Franco-Moroccan defender, with experience at U19 and U21 level for France. He had an unsucessful trial in 2009 at Pompey under then boss Paul Hart. He has experience in British football with 34 appearances for Charlton and Motherwell. A player who burst onto the scene with huge potential, he will be keen to make a name for himself at Pompey.
Adam Reed – Midfielder
At 21 years old, Adam Reed is described as an energetic young player. He captained the Sunderland U21 side and has experience at League One level after loan spells with Brentford and Leyton Orient.
Sam Sodje – Defender
Sodje is a 33 year old English-born Nigerian defender. He has extensive experience in England after spells with Brentford, Reading, West Brom, Stevenage, Charlton, Watford and Leeds. He scored 2 goals in 27 games in his most recently employment at League One side Notts County. A versatile defender, who should provide solidity in defence and a good level of experience. Has played for his country on 7 occasions.
Frankie Sutherland – Midfielder
Sutherland is an 18 year old with a great future ahead, a QPR loanee he was convinced by Sam Magri to join the Blues. He has represented the Republic of Ireland at U19 level and Pompey fans will hope he can bring some energy and creativity into a midfield which has looked a little flat on occasions this season.
