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.

25/2/1889: Joseph Potts
25/2/1952: John T McLaughlin
25/2/1955: Jeff Hemmerman
25/2/1991: Josh Thompson

From the Ed



Happy birthday to Joseph Potts, John T McLaughlin, Jeff Hemmerman and Josh Thompson – the Pompey players from the Blues’ past born on this day.

Potts was not only before my time but that of anyone. McLaughlin and Hemmerman were too soon for me as well but I do know of them.

Thompson didn’t spend long with Pompey but I probably saw most – if not all – of his limited games for the Blues.

Now onto the games previously played.

Played – 18
Won – 7
Drawn – 3
Lost – 8

I do recall a number of games – didn’t make the most recent at Fratton Park – with a draw with Leeds at Fratton in 2012 my only game attended.

What are your memories Potts – too soon for anyone, McLaughlin, Hemmerman and/or Thompson 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?
