From the Ed



Another birthday free day – two in a row – so it’ll be onto the games previously played.

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

With 9 wins to 8 defeats – the other 4 were drawn – Pompey’s victories to losses ratio is in our favour from the 21 played.

I wasn’t at the disappointing defeat at York last year but do remember it, too well sadly. The game I can claim was the 3-2 win over Bristol Rovers in 2014 at Fratton Park, when we sent them into non-league I think?

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 from them too?

  • 1965 Norwich saw Jimmy Dickinson play his last ever game at Fratton Park. I remember it was a very emotional day and the 4-0 win eventually helped Pompey escape relegation.

  • 14,05,86&77…14 good win & a good crowd..05 I can’t picture Kamara’s goal..86 I remember McGarvey scoring a great header in the Milton End(about the only time he did)&77 we used to lose most weeks back in them days…

  • There for the games in 86, went to Plough Lane for a midweek bruising game with Wimbledon in 88.
    Top flight game with Liverpool in 2005 & a desperate battle to stay up in the bottom tier in 2014.
