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.

22/4/1894: William Beedie
22/4/1963: Scott McGarvey
22/4/1968: Lee Sandford
22/4/1971: Steve Soley
22/4/1974: Darren Moore

From the Ed

Happy birthday to William Beedie, Scott McGarvey, Lee Sandford, Steve Soley and Darren Moore.

Beedie was before my time and not someone I know of either. I do know McGarvey and Sandford well enough, but cannot recall actually seeing them in action? However, Soley and Moore, definitely Bruno, are players I recall very well from their time with the Blues and saw play on plenty of occasions.

Now onto the games previously played.

Played – 21
Won – 7
Drawn – 5
Lost – 9

Well, another pretty disappointing day really with fewer wins than defeats, which occur almost 50% of the time.

A blank day for me as I could not make it to Fratton Park for victory over Cambridge in 2017, thankfully I was at Notts County on Monday though so celebrated our promotion from League Two on that day.

What are your memories of Beedie – clearly too early, McGarvey, Sandford, Soley and/or Moore 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?

  • 17,06&92….Big win last yr before clinching the Championship, 06 a massive win in the Great Escape,1-0 down & looking like getting relegated but a Toddy equaliser & a late Pen from Matty Taylor( after a ludicrous handball from Kevin Kyle) won us the game.Very poignant for me as my late brother had just had a serious operation at the time & I raced into StMarys Hosp to see him straight after the game.He was elated as he’d had the radio on & we were 1 down & then he heard the roar knowing we’d equalised & the rest is history as they say…92 a 0-0 just after we’d lost our semi to Liverpool…Of the B’days McGarvey who’d turned with a big reputation but didn’t fulfill it here,Sandford who’d been here as a lad,saw him play & score for us,poor Soley had come from non league but had the indignity of going on as a sub & then being subbed & big Bruno of course,now in temporary charge of WBA
