Dan Smith and Bradley Lethbridge have joined Bognor Regis Town on loan from Portsmouth.
Attacking midfielder Smith – who accepted a third-year scholarship in May 2018 – began his Blues journey as an Under-8, and has so far represented the club at every level up to Under-23. Still awaiting his professional debut, Smith has been amongst the substitutes for a handful of injury-hit Pompey’s Sky Bet League One fixtures in 2018.
Lethbridge first signed for Pompey as a ten-year-old central midfielder but was released after just one year. Returned as a striker in 2014, and was awarded a first-year apprenticeship in July 2017.
A powerful forward with an impressive goalscoring record at academy level, Lethbridge was one of the standout performers in the Under-18s 2017 FA Youth Cup run to the third round.
