League Two Portsmouth have completed the signing of former Town striker Tom Craddock on a two-year deal following his release by Oxford, while ex-Town winger Dean Morgan has agreed a new one-year deal with Wycombe Wanderers.

Craddock scored 38 in 86 appearances during two seasons at Kenilworth Road after signing from Middlesbrough for £50,000.

He was then sold to Oxford United in 2010 for a similar fee where he went on to net 28 goals in 87 games, and was one of of 12 players released by Oxford earlier in May.

Craddock, 26, said: “It excites me that if we’re doing well we’re likely to be playing in front of 15,000-plus crowds.”

Pompey manager Guy Whittingham added: “If you want to be promoted from one league to another then you have to bring in goalscorers and that’s what we have got with Tom.

“He’s a player that has a good ratio and we believe he will do well for us.

“I’ve watched Tom and he has a great work ethic. If he is not scoring goals he will keep going and be a right pest to defenders in League Two.”

Meanwhile, former Luton Town attacker Amari Morgan-Smith is one of a host of players who have been released by Conference rivals Macclesfield Town after joining them in the summer.

The 24-year-old, who netted 18 times in 48 for Town, only scored four league goals for the Silkmen last season and once during a loan spell with Kidderminster Harriers.
