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.

18/1/1946: Nicky Jennings

From the Ed



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

Jennings was a player before my time but heard many a positive story about him from various people I have travelled with over the year.

Now onto the games previously played.

Played – 16
Won – 6
Drawn – 6
Lost – 4

I can claim the last couple of games. The most recent draw with Mansfield at Fratton Park in 2014 and the draw at White Hart Lane against Spurs in 2009 as David Nugent got one over Harry Redknapp, well, kind of.

What are your memories of Jennings 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?

  • 1992 & we scored 2 goals in the last 5 minutes to draw with leaders Blackburn. They still went up.
    Also there in 2014 for the awful home draw with Mighty Mansfield.

  • Games back to 1969 and the win over Fulham.

    Sadly Nicky Jennings passed away in June 2016 and is missed by all who saw him play.

  • 14,92&77…3 draws,another winless day,too many this month already..I think the 77 was the one where Kempy scored a spectacular overhead kick….Jennings played in my first ever game in 71 so got fond memories of him
