The teenage striker came on early in the second half on Saturday at home to Havant and Waterlooville and gave the visitors problems.

He was unlucky not to find the net with one chance, of his own creation, when he skillfully stepped away from two defenders and curled goalwards, a deflection taking his shot over the bar.

“Levi is a tremendous substitute to bring on,” said Allen.
