On this day in history…14th 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.

From the Ed

Happy birthday to Hugh Davey and Dick Pearson – the Pompey players from the Blues’ past born on this day.

Quite obviously Davey was well before my time – that of anyone in fact – and isn’t a player I can claim to know anything about.

Also before my time, Pearson is another unknown Pompey commodity to me and one that probably wasn’t witnessed by anyone reading on?

What are your memories of Davey – who would have been too soon – and/or Pearson – possibly unseen too – from their Pompey days?
