Bromley boss Neil Smith said: “I’d like to say good luck to him. He’s been absolutely brilliant for us since he’s been here, and especially this season.
“I made the decision to play him as a number 10 this year and it worked well, he scored 21 goals. The way he’s played and some of the goals he scored will be memorable, and he’ll always be welcome here. I wish him all the best and hope he keeps up the good work, and I hope our paths will cross again on good terms in the future”.
Chairman Jerry Dolke also commented: “Louis is a brilliant player, and he’s proved that this season with some sensational performances in our National League campaign and FA Trophy run. I’d personally like to wish him the very best of luck at Portsmouth. The stage is yours, Louis!”
Kenny Jackett, his new manager, said: “He’s an exciting player with a lot of talent and someone we’ve been watching for quite some time.
“He was named in the National League Team of the Season and we’re pleased to be able to sign him for Pompey.
“It’s a big opportunity for him, but he has the ability to create and score goals, which is what we’re looking for.
“He’s worked hard for his opportunity and we feel that as a person, he’s mature enough to go on and take it.”
