A look back at this day in history, and what was happening with Pompey courtesy of our sister site PompeyRama.

No games on this day previously…

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…

25/5/1942: Ron Davies
25/5/1927: Lindy Delapenha

Did you know that Delapenha was called Lindy because he was named after Charles Lindbergh the first man to fly the Atlantic? Lloyd Lindbergh Delapenha was born just four day after the epic flight ended.

He was also of course the first Jamaican player to play in England – not the first black player as many think.

PLAY UP POMPEY!
