On this day in history…13th June


A look back at this day in history, and what was happening with Pompey courtesy of PompeyRama.

No Pompey games have previously played on this day.

Due to this lack of games, well, none of them it will be straight onto the other feature – again courtesy of PompeyRama – looking at those Pompey personalities – past or present – who have a birthday on this day.

13/6/1942: Jimmy White

From the Ed

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

White, well, he was before my time and I must admit the only Jimmy White I know of is ‘the Whirlwind’ from snooker fame, who was something of an icon of mine growing up from another sport – damn you, Stephen Hendry!

He (Pompey’s White) was playing football before my time and isn’t a player known to me at all from his time with the Blues or otherwise.

What are your memories of White from his Pompey days?
