What have the Portsmouth players been up to over the weekend in isolation?



After Friday’s update from Portsmouth CEO Mark Catlin that training this week would be suspended, there have been further developments at the club in the wake of the current pandemic.

Catlin informed supporters that all of the first-team squad would be tested for the COVID-19 virus, and it has since emerged that James Bolton, Sean Raggett, Haji Mnoga and Andy Cannon are positive, and therefore must self-isolate in accordance with government guidelines.

“All three players were in good spirits and perfectly calm – showing mild or no symptoms,” Catlin said in a club statement.

That means first-team training may not take place for the next two weeks at the club due to the trio’s absence.

On a positive note, the other members of the playing squad were entertaining themselves over the weekend in many different ways, including the the ‘Toilet Paper Challenge’.

As well as Cannon, who is self-isolating, Christian Burgess, Ronan Curtis and Oli Hawkins all got involved in the challenge at home.

Striker John Marquis also admitted to BBC Radio 5 Live that he was making the most of his free time by playing Football Manager, unsurprisingly selecting Portsmouth as the team of choice.

He made the claim that he achieved promotion in his first season, and won the golden boot in the process.

January signing Reeco Hackett-Fairchild was also showing his skills over the weekend, as he passed the time by doing a challenge in his back garden.

With Pompey’s players currently not reporting to the training ground, they’ve had follow a home training schedule to maintain fitness levels.
