Early life

Porritt was born in Middlesbrough, North Yorkshire. At the age of ten, he joined Middlesbrough F.C.'s youth academy while continuing his education at The King's Academy.


Secret filming for BBC Panorama's programme "Undercover: Football's Dirty Secrets", aired in September 2006, exposed an agent acting without Middlesbrough's permission in offering the then 15-year-old Porritt to club representatives, including Chelsea's youth director Frank Arnesen, in contravention of the Football Association's rules.

Porritt signed a two-year scholarship with Middlesbrough in the summer of 2006, and signed his first professional contract with the club on 10 June 2008. Porritt's contract with Middlesbrough was cancelled by mutual consent on 1 February 2010.

Porritt was reported to have trained with Portuguese clubs Belenenses, and Olhanense but did not sign for them. After a frustrating six-month spell at financially troubled Belgian Third Division club Olympic Charleroi Porritt was released from his contract with the club. Porritt has since had trials with West Ham United, Blackpool and Hartlepool. On 23 February 2013 he signed for Billingham Synthonia.

International career

Considered a bright prospect, he was a member of the England under-17 squad at the 2007 FIFA U-17 World Cup. He was called up to the England under-18 squad in 2008. He had also played a number of games for the U16 team, previous to this.
