Nicke Kabamba

(23)
Hampton & Richmond Borough


Pompey have signed striker Nicke Kabamba from Hampton & Richmond for an undisclosed fee.

The 23-year-old – who has netted 16 National League South goals this season – has penned an 18-month deal with the Blues, with the club holding an option for a further year.

Kabamba said: “I’m really grateful for this opportunity and hopefully I can bring my scoring ratio into this league.

“Coming from non-league and now signing for a club like Pompey, life’s going to completely change.

“I’ve quit my job as a car salesman after four years and I will be moving down to the area.

“Playing in front of 17,000 people will be the strangest thing. I’ve seen it on TV, but it’s not until I’m out there and am able to soak in the atmosphere for myself first-hand that it will all sink in.”

Kabamba has previously turned out for Burnham and Hemel Hempstead, and scored at Bath in his last appearance for Hampton & Richmond

Noel Hunt

Free Agent



Pompey have completed the signing of striker Noel Hunt on a one-year deal.

The 33-year-old has already featured for the Blues in pre-season and will wear the number 20 shirt.

“This is a fantastic club,” said the former Republic of Ireland international. “They have a great reputation and manager, so it was a no-brainer for me.

“The gaffer wanted me to come down here and see what a professional standard it is. It’s a really high quality.

“I’ve turned down a few clubs from higher leagues because I felt that this was the right one for me.

“This is a club with plenty of ambition and I spoke to friends of mine who have played here before – like Andy Griffin, Jason Pearce and David Norris – and speak very highly about the place.

“It’ll be great to play in front of such large crowds and it gives you an extra buzz when you take to the pitch.”

Hunt started his career at Shamrock Rovers in his homeland before spells with Scottish sides Dunfermline and Dundee United.

He is perhaps best known for his time with Reading, however, where he scored 39 goals in 162 appearances and won promotion to the Premier League.

Hunt moved on to feature for Leeds and Ipswich, spending last season with Southend before departing in May.

Adam Buxton

(24)
Accrington Stanley


Defender arrives from Accrington

Pompey have signed versatile full-back Adam Buxton on an initial one-year deal.

The 24-year-old – who turned down the offer of a new contract at Accrington – has been handed the number 21 shirt.

He said: “I’m happy to have signed for such a massive club – it feels like we’re only going to go in one direction.

“Hopefully I can help the lads get out of this division and back to where everyone wants to be.

“The fan-base here speaks for itself – it’s the best in the league and only Sheffield United from the one above are on a par with Pompey.

“I’ve played here at Fratton Park and seen first-hand that the supporters really get behind their team.”

Buxton came through the ranks at Wigan and had a spell on loan with Accrington before joining them permanently in the summer of 2014.

He scored two goals in 62 appearances during his time with Stanley and featured twice against the Blues last season.
