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.

17/1/1932: Jackie Henderson

From the Ed



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

Henderson was well before my time and – in all honesty – not a player I know much about either.

Now onto the games previously played.

Played – 13
Won – 4
Drawn – 3
Lost – 6

I do recall a few of the games played in recent year but ironically enough – the only one I’ve managed myself – I cannot remember anything about the most recent against Burton. Not sure why but this was a draw in 2015 at Fratton Park.

What are your memories of Henderson – if he wasn’t before your time – from his Pompey days? Also have you taken in any of the games previously played today – if so what are the memories from them too?

  • Just the home game in 2015, I think Burton went up that season. Missed the 2002 game as had a family holiday in Florida, though desperate to know the score!!!
