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.

19/3/1935: Roy Summersby
19/3/1936: Roy Smith
19/3/1941: Tony Priscott
19/3/1977: Scott Wilson

From the Ed



Happy birthday to Roy Summersby, Roy Smith, Tony Priscott and Scott Wilson – the Pompey players from the Blues’ past born on this day.

Summersby, Smith and Priscott are all before my time and not players I know much about. Cannot remember too much about Wilson either to be honest, fairly sure he was brought in on loan from someone though?

Now onto the games previously played.

Played – 21
Won – 8
Drawn – 7
Lost – 6

Not a bad day I guess and I do recall a good few of the games played. However, I haven’t personally been to one.

What are your memories Summersby, Smith, Priscott – who are all probably before the time of anyone – and/or Wilson from their Pompey days? Also have you taken in any of the games previously played today – if so what are the memories from them too?
