Reeco Hackett-Fairchild was unveiled as a Portsmouth player on Monday, and the Pompey fans have wasted no time in welcoming their new signing to Fratton Park.
The 21-year-old signed from National League promotion chasers Bromley after scoring eight goals in 25 appearances this season, and he will be looking to make a lasting impact on League One.
Having started his career with Dagenham & Redbridge, he soon got a move to Charlton Athletic after a successful trial. Things didn’t work out for him at The Valley and he was loaned out to Dulwich Hamlet and Bromley after failing to score for The Addicks in 24 appearances.
He then opted to join Bromley on a permanent basis last summer and he settled into the National League again on a permanent basis, but has now been handed a second opportunity within the Football League.

Portsmouth have signed players from non-league before, having poached striker Jamal Lowe from Hampton & Richmond in January 2017 who has gone on to establish himself in the Football League and secured a move to Championship outfit Wigan Athletic in the summer.
Here, we take a look at the best reaction from Portsmouth fans to Hackett-Fairchild’s tweet just moments after the signing was announced…
Wear your heart on your sleeve and we’ll like you mate

Hope to see you do well, as I did with @JamzLowe I shall be waiting until next season before I make any judgments, think it's only fair you have time to settle in to full time demands again. Welcome to @pompey and good luck!
