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 much about Wilson either to be honest but think he was brought in on loan?

Now onto the games previously played.

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

Not a bad day as 8 of the 21 have been won, 7 drawn and only 6 lost.

I do recall a good few of the games played but haven’t been to one so I draw a blank.

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?

  • Just 05…so no wins.Amazing that all the games have been away,last one before 05 was 1960 & I wasn’t even born…& no birthday’s

  • One home game since 1958. Thankfully was around in 2005 as my namesake & a Geordie scoring against his home town team. Vivid memories of our stomping 4-0 win at Coventry in 2003 in that all conquering season.
