Another feature, again courtesy of PompeyRama, sees us look at those Pompey personalities – past or present – who have a birthday on this day.
Happy birthday to David Waterman and John Marquis – the Pompey players from the Blues’ past born on this day.
I always thought Waterman was a better defender than credited for. Not a world-beater by any means, but not a bad footballer to be fair.
Marquis, it didn’t really happen for him during his loan at Fratton Park, which was, in fairness the case with some of the other numerous loans away from Millwall he undertook. At Doncaster, it clicked for him though.
Now onto the games previously played.
Played – 1
Won – 0
Drawn – 0
Lost – 1
Pompey have only ever played the one game on this day and this ended in the disappointment of a loss.
I wasn’t at this defeat for Pompey at Filbert Street, Leicester’s win giving them the upper hand over the Blues in the play-off semi-final of 1993.
What are your memories of Waterman and/or Marquis 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?
