Hi, I’m Carlos! A coach, sports enthusiast, and the founder of FCScout.com.

I fell in love with the game at a very young age like many of you. I’ve been following and playing soccer for many years.

Throughout my career, I always enjoyed helping soccer players chase their dreams, which is why I started this website. I wanted to reach a larger audience outside of my local area and fcscout.com was born.

This website is a platform I will be using to update club pages on any tryouts, stadiums, players, tech, and more from clubs around the world. I also create free recruitment profiles for players looking to have that extra competitive edge when reaching out to clubs.

That’s it. That’s my pitch for you to stick around (or browse the site as you please).

This is already too much text for a “see more” drop-down button thing. If you want to reach out to me, head on over to my contact page 🙂

Portsmouth FC Academy players

Portsmouth FC has a great history of producing first-team players from the Academy and the club is committed to identifying, developing and supporting talented young footballers for them to achieve their maximum potential in a positive, supportive and professional learning environment.

Portsmouth FC Pompey Academy

Pompey Academy currently plays in the Youth Alliance League South-West Division, FA Youth Cup and the Youth Alliance Cup. Home games are played at the Portsmouth FC training ground – 442 Copnor Road, Hilsea, Portsmouth PO3 5EW.

Portsmouth was granted academy status at the beginning of the 2007/2008 season. In their first year as an academy side, they finished a highly respectable 4th-place finish in the Premier League Academy Group A, beating some well-established academy sides during that time. In the 2012-13 season, the Academy won the Football League Youth Alliance South East Conference.

In more recent seasons, the academy has had some of its most successful seasons to date, competing at the higher end of their current division and advancing the furthest it ever has in the Youth Alliance Cup, (reaching the quarter-final stage), as well as recent graduates making EFL appearances for the first time in a few years. The more recent of these is Harry Jewitt-White, who came off the bench to feature against Peterborough in January 2023.

Throughout the years, Pompey has had several academy graduates come through and excel within the professional pyramids, some whilst wearing the Blue, Red and White of Portsmouth and others going on to achieve success following their footballing education with the Blues.

The academy currently operates at the Category Three level and currently plays in the Football League Youth Alliance South-West Division and also competes in the FA Youth Cup.
