Lewes have signed teenage midfielder George Branford from Portsmouth on a one-month loan deal.

The Sussex-based 19-year-old is a first-year professional at Fratton Park and, while he has yet to make a competitive senior appearance for Pompey, he did appear for the first team during their pre-season campaign.

As well as playing for Portsmouth’s development squad, Branford has had a taste of senior men’s football at Southern Premier League side AFC Totton this season, making six appearances and scoring one goal.
