Drew Talbot

(29)
Chesterfield


Another summer arrival at Fratton Park

Pompey have swooped to sign Drew Talbot on a two-year deal from July 1.

The versatile 29-year-old is a free agent after leaving Chesterfield, where he made 277 appearances.

He was part of the side – managed by current Blues boss Paul Cook – who secured the 2013/14 League Two title.

Although predominantly used as a full-back, Talbot has also previously performed in midfield and as a striker.

Pompey’s assistant manager Leam Richardson said: “I’ve worked with Drew before and he’s a fantastic signing for this club.

“He’s everything that our fans like about a player – he’s robust, works hard and is very fit. He’s a great lad and we expect big things from him.”

Talbot started his career at Sheffield Wednesday and helped them claim League One promotion in 2005 by scoring in the play-off final.

He then moved on to Luton before signing for Chesterfield in 2009, where he also won the Football League Trophy in 2012.

Carl Baker

(33)
MK Dons


Pompey have agreed a deal to sign midfielder Carl Baker on a two-year contract from July 1.

The 33-year-old joins fellow new additions Matt Clarke and Danny Rose as Paul Cook continues to shape his squad for the 2016/17 campaign.

Baker has spent the past two seasons at MK Dons, where he scored 15 goals in 72 appearances.

And he is delighted to make the move to Fratton Park, having come close to joining the Blues fairly recently.

“I very nearly signed for Pompey two years ago,” Baker recalled. “It’s lovely to finally arrive on the south coast.

“Since then I’ve kept a close eye on their results and another big factor in me coming here is that Paul Cook was my boss at Southport, where I started out.

“He’s an extremely passionate manager who is very knowledgeable and wants his teams to play football in a certain way.

“I know all about the expectations of the fans and far from fazing me, it’s a reason why I wanted to sign – along with the undoubted size of this club.

“I already know lads like Gary Roberts, Michael Doyle and Adam Barton and although I may have dropped down the league, after speaking to the manager I am in no doubt that Pompey are going places.”

Baker netted 10 goals in the 2014/15 season when MK Dons won automatic promotion to the Championship and was named Player of the Year.

The going was tougher last term and Karl Robinson’s side were relegated back to the third tier, but the midfielder still chipped in with five strikes.

After beginning his career in the non-league game with Southport, Baker moved on to feature for Morecambe and Stockport.

He then spent four-and-a-half years with Coventry, scoring 28 goals in 182 games and being named captain.

MusicBee, is in my opinion the best Music Player for the PC

The new version is now out and I like it, very configurable although it does still contain the odd bug but the writers are usually very good at sorting things out and as it’s free you can’t really complain.

It did unfortunately mess up my playlists and playcounts so everything has been reset and re-organised.

Matt Clarke

(19)
Ipswich Town

OUT
Adam Webster

(21)
Ipswich Town


Matt Clarke will join Pompey from Ipswich in a permanent deal on July 1, with Adam Webster moving in the opposite direction.

The 19-year-old centre-back has agreed a three-year deal with the Blues, who will also receive an undisclosed fee.

Clarke spent the 2015/16 campaign on loan at Fratton Park, scoring once in 33 appearances and is excited about returning.

“I’m over the moon,” he said. “It was a good season for me on a personal level, although we didn’t quite hit the heights we were aiming for.

“I’ve come on leaps and bounds – playing under-21 football just isn’t the same as turning out in front of massive crowds at Fratton Park.

“It was devastating for me to miss the play-off games with a niggly injury after working so hard throughout the campaign.

“But now I’m raring to get started again and am looking forward to what’s ahead at Pompey.

“This club might be in League Two, but everything’s set-up for us to be at a higher level and we want to make sure that happens.”

Webster scored five goals in 81 appearances after graduating from Pompey’s academy and represented England at under-19 level.

POSTER TITLE RATING
Carry On Sergeant

(1958)

 

Plot Summary

Sergeant Grimshaw wants to retire in the flush of success by winning the Star Squad prize with his very last platoon of newly called-up National Servicemen. But what a motley bunch they turn out to be, and it’s up to Grimshaw to put the no-hopers through their paces.

Verdict

The first Carry On film and it shows, lead character is played by Bob Monkhouse and not one of the regular team of which only Kenneth Williams, Charles Hawtrey, Hattie Jacques and Kenneth Connor are present in supporting roles.

It’s fun but lacks the humour and slapstick you expect from the series.
