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

16/2/1938: Sammy Chapman
16/2/1958: David Crown
16/2/1997: Conor Chaplin

From the Ed



Happy birthday to Sammy Chapman, David Crown and Conor Chaplin – the Pompey players from the Blues’ past born on this day.

Both Chapman and Crown were before my time and I cannot really say I know much about them, if anything at all.

As for Chaplin I think we all know him. One that I rate highly – and not because he’s ‘one of our own’ either – but one who does need to step it up.

Now onto the games previously played.

Played – 8
Won – 2
Drawn – 3
Lost – 3

I can claim one game as I was at Fratton Park for the draw with Carlisle in 2013.

What are your memories of Chapman – maybe too early for anyone, Crown and/or Chaplin from their Pompey days? Also have you taken in any of the games previously played today – if so what are the memories from them too?
