Home Farm happy to maintain Portsmouth partnership

Home Farm are happy with their partnership agreement with crisis club Portsmouth.

It's been 12 months since a three-year youth development deal was penned between the clubs, with striker Carl Walshe already making rapid progress through Pompey's youth system.

Home Farm secretary Karen Heneghan is adamant the club remain as loyal as ever to Pompey.

She told The News: "We have reassured Portsmouth we are still proud and happy to stay with the link.

"Obviously there have been problems at their end, but we are going to sit on the sidelines and give them time. The relationship has been strengthened over the past year if anything. We are part of the family and will keep our end of the link.

"We are only into year two and are prepared to let them sort themselves out. As partners, it's imperative we are there for them. We were down the other week visiting Paul Smalley and they really are a lovely, lovely bunch of people to work with.

"Nothing is going to change and we will continue to stand by Portsmouth during what is a very difficult time for them."
