Another feature, again courtesy of PompeyRama, sees us look at those Pompey personalities – past or present – who have a birthday on this day.

10/5/1929: Tommy McGhee

From the Ed

Happy birthday to Tommy McGhee – the Pompey player from the Blues’ past born on this day.

McGhee was well before my time; with so few games played on this day I doubt anyone would have seen him in action for Pompey?

Now onto the games previously played.

Played – 3
Won – 1
Drawn – 0
Lost – 2

Well, if we thought yesterday was light on games it doesn’t compare to today, we’ve only played the 3 games. At least we haven’t lost the lot, just most of them.

As it’s over 30 years since Pompey had the last of these games it isn’t a surprise I can’t claim one personally.

What are your memories of McGhee – I’d be surprised of anyone actually did see him play? – from his Pompey days? Also, have you taken in any of the games previously played today – if so what are the memories of them too?
