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.

18/4/1992: Tom Davies

From the Ed

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

He only had a short spell at Fratton Park, which saw opinions split on him, but I thought Davies did ok. Alright, perhaps he wasn’t quite up to where we hope to go?

Now onto the games previously played.

Played – 21
Won – 8
Drawn – 4
Lost – 9

Not too much in it, but we’ve still lost more than anything else, so defeats are the most common outcome on this day.

I claim three today, the defeat against Bury in 2015 along with a loss against Aston Villa, both at Fratton Park. The third was a win over Bolton in 2009, also at Fratton.

What are your memories of Davies 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?
