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.

17/4/1954 Jimmy McIlwraith

From the Ed

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

McIlwraith was before my time and not really known to me either, to be honest.

Now onto the games previously played.

Played – 19
Won – 7
Drawn – 8
Lost – 4

Draws are the most common outcome on this day, just. However, with plenty more wins than defeats, it does make it a good day.

I’ve only managed the one today, the win over Crystal Palace at Fratton Park in 2012, which was also the most recent game played. I do recall the Charlton defeat and Manchester United victory well.

What are your memories of McIlwraith from his Pompey days? Also, have you taken in any of the games previously played today – if so what are the memories of them too?
