Pompey duo sign for Chelmsford

Ashley Harris: Heading to Essex

Portsmouth duo Ashley Harris and Nick Awford have joined non-league Chelmsford City on a month's loan.

Striker Harris, 19, made 29 appearances for Pompey last season but has yet to break into the first team this term.

Midfielder Awford has one late substitute appearance to his name and the 18-year-old had a loan spell at Havant & Waterlooville earlier this season.

Boss Guy Whittingham is also likely to send left-back Dan Butler out on loan to get more first-team experience.
