Dickinson seals Pompey return

Portsmouth have re-signed defender Carl Dickinson on a

short-term loan deal from Championship outfit Watford.

The left-back has arrived at Fratton Park for a month and goes

straight into the squad for Tuesday’s trip to Stevenage.

The 25-year-old made 39 npower Championship appearances during a

spell at Pompey during the 2010-11 season and admitted the move was

a “no-brainer” for him.

“It’s an exciting move,” he told the club’s official


“I wasn’t getting a chance at Watford and I needed games, so I

jumped at the chance to come back.

“I know what it’s like to play at Fratton Park and know how

great the fans are – hopefully they can push us on.”
