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.

From the Ed



A birthday free day, which doesn’t happy often but as this is the case we move straight onto the games previously played today ahead of the one this afternoon.

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

I do recall a large number of these games on this day but can only claim the one myself – Devera didn’t score many goals for Pompey, which isn’t surprising as he was a defender, but a game that he did score in was the most recent one at Fratton Park in a win over Shrewsbury in 2015.

What are your memories of Lawler 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?
