Stanley striker Colby Bishop has completed a move to Portsmouth for an undisclosed fee.

The 25-year-old joined the Reds from Leamington in the summer of 2019 and went on to make 123 appearances for the club in total.

Bishop scored 15 goals last season as John Coleman's men finished 12th in League One.

He had also been linked with a move to Championship outfit Blackpool ahead of the new season.

"From the day that I signed, everyone at the club has been nothing but great to me and I wouldn't be in this situation without all their help," Bishop told the club's website.

"I am proud of what we achieved as a team and I want to say thank you to the fans because they have been nothing but supportive to me, helping me through some dark times and the good times.

"When we meet later in the season, I'm hoping I can see them and say my goodbyes."

Manager John Coleman added: "Everyone knows my admiration for Colby, a great lad as well and he's been brilliant for this club.

"He hasn't walked away for nothing, so we'll get a few bob and Leamington will get rewarded as well which is good."

The Reds kick off their League One campaign with a home fixture against Charlton Athletic on Saturday, July 30.
