In a recent interview with local paper The News, Paul Doswell stated his hope that he can use the club’s close partnership with League promotion challengers Portsmouth next season. 

The former Sutton boss, who recently took over from Lee Bradbury, has admitted that he is keen to potentially pick up a few Pompey youngsters on loan deals.

Over the years the likes ofJack Whatmough  Calvin Davis and Theo Widdrington and have enjoyed stints at Westleigh Park.

Speaking to the News, Doswell said, ‘We’ll look to progress that (relationship) even more so,’ said Doswell.

‘It’s a huge thing for this football club to stay very close to Portsmouth.

‘When I played down at Havant many years ago, they’ve always had the relationship with the football club.

‘That’s been good with all clubs.

‘Also, in the same way, occasionally we’ll come up with a young one that they could have the first shout on. It can work both ways.

‘I know they always have a friendly here, which is in July.

‘That is the opening part of the relationship. But you’ve also got to be good enough.

‘Some of the lads at 18, 19 or 20, even at professional clubs, are not necessarily good enough to get into our starting XI.

‘You’ve got to be good enough.’
