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

12/5/1924: Martin Reagan
12/5/1926: Albert Mundy

From the Ed

Happy birthday to Martin Reagan and Albert Mundy – the Pompey players from the Blues’ past born on this day.

Reagan and Mundy are both well before my time, I would suggest before the majority, if not all, reading this?

Now onto the games previously played.

Played – 2
Won – 1
Drawn – 1
Lost – 0

Well, which isn’t something we can say that often, this is a day we’ve never lost! Admittedly, Pompey have only played on a couple of occasions, winning and drawing.

I wasn’t at the only win, I’m too young, but can claim the draw at Fratton Park in the 2016 play-off semi-final against Plymouth.

What are your memories of Reagan and Mundy – I would think too early for anyone? – from their Pompey days? Also, have you taken in any of the games previously played today – if so what are the memories of them too?

  • 16&84….Both of the games.Huge disappointment in 16 of course at the outcome,should’ve won the home leg..& 84 Hateley scored on his last Pompey appearance along with a Biley HT.Bobby Campbell had just been sacked a few days earlier,less than a year after winning the 3rd Div title
