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.

20/4/1928: Norman Uprichard
20/4/1958: Laurie Milligan
20/4/1967: Alan McLoughlin
20/4/1971: Nicos Kyzeridis

From the Ed

Happy birthday to Norman Uprichard, Laurie Milligan, Alan McLoughlin and Nicos Kyzeridis – the Pompey players from the Blues’ past born on this day.

Uprichard was before my time as was Milligan, but I recall McLoughlin very well from his playing and coaching spells with Pompey. Kyzeridis, one I remember too, had a brief spell with the Blues in the late 1990s under the legendary Alan Ball.

Now onto the games previously played.

Played – 17
Won – 7
Drawn – 3
Lost – 7

Literally nothing in it today, we win or lose, obviously several draws are thrown into the mix too.

I can claim the last two today, a win over Sheffield United at Fratton Park in 2013 and the one before that at the Etihad Stadium against Manchester City in 2008, a Premier League loss.

What are your memories of Uprichard – I would think too early, Milligan, McLoughlin and Kyzeridis from their Pompey days? Also, have you taken in any of the games previously played today – if so what are the memories of them too?
