Nicky Shorey signs a new 12 month deal to keep him at #Pompey.
League Two Portsmouth have given Andy Awford the permanent role of manager, having been in caretaker charge since Richie Barker's departure.
During his tenure, Awford has steered Pompey away from the relegation zone thanks to a strong run, including five straight wins.
On his appointment, Awford said: “I genuinely believe that the club is now ready to progress and the opportunity to lead it is a challenge that I relish and am absolutely committed to."
Everything still pointing towards a departure from #Pompey for Richie Barker today.
Former England international left-back Nicky Shorey has joined League Two Portsmouth until the end of the season, following his release by Bristol City.
