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.

21/1/1949: John Collins
21/1/1980: Dave Kitson

From the Ed



Happy birthday to John Collins and Dave Kitson – the Pompey players from the Blues’ past born on this day.

Collins was before my time and cannot say I was familiar with him but Kitson I remember – admit I wish I sometimes couldn’t – well from his spell at Fratton Park.

Now onto the games previously played.

Played – 12
Won – 6
Drawn – 1
Lost – 5

I’m a little superstitious at times, so a little worried about ’13’ being an unlucky number when we eventually play it – this should have been against Crawley in 2016 but the game was postponed on the day. I wouldn’t have travelled anyway, which again means I can recall games but not claim one.

What are your memories of Collins and/or Kitson 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?
