1/1/1892: Ernest Thompson
1/1/1894: James Mackie
1/1/1896: Dave Watson
1/1/1896: William Lewry
1/1/1915: Archibald Young
1/1/1933: Alex Stenhouse
1/1/1935: Brian Snowdon
1/1/1982: Luke Rodgers
1/1/1991: Kieran Djilali

From the Ed



Happy birthday to Ernest Thompson, James Mackie, Dave Watson, William Lewry, Archibald Young, Alex Stenhouse, Brian Snowdon, Luke Rodgers and Kieran Djilali – the Pompey players from the Blues’ past born on this day.

Thompson, Mackie, Watson, Lewry, Young, Stenhouse and Snowdon were all well before my time – most way, way too early for me and not even known by name.

However, I recall both Rodgers and Djilali from brief spells with Pompey a few years back – Djilali’s even briefer than Rodgers’ who did score a few goals for the Blues.

Now onto the games previously played.

Played – 34
Won – 11
Drawn – 10
Lost – 13

I do remember plenty of the previous games played – and it’s a traditional game to play – but I can claim only the one from 2007 at Fratton Park when we drew with Spurs.

What are your memories of Thompson, Mackie, Watson, Lewry, Young – all too early I would think, Stenhouse, Snowdon – both probably too soon too, Rodgers and Djilali 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?
