Brandon Joseph-Buadi in FA Youth Cup action for Pompey

Worthing Football Club added former Portsmouth youngster Brandon Joseph-Buadi to their squad last night.

The 18-year-old was released by Pompey in the summer, after spending the end of last season on loan at Bognor. He played once for Pompey when he made his professional debut in the 2-0 Johnstone’s Paint Trophy defeat to Exeter last season.

Worthing joint manager Jon Meeney said: “He’s coming back from a slight injury but came through training on Tuesday. He’s part of the Worthing group now and we’ll slowly build him up.

“He’s a young player who has come through the system at Portsmouth and lives locally, in Lancing. He’s had the experience of being around a first-tean squad and is a quick, mobile forward who can also play out wide and he’ll aid us in the offensive third.

“He was on loan at Bognor at the end of last season, so has experience of the Ryman Premier. It’s important he knuckles down, is the best he can be in the short term and then the medium and long term will take care of itself for him.”
