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.

27/11/1931: Rodney Henwood
27/11/1966: Mark Kelly
27/11/1981: Matthew Taylor

From the Ed




Happy birthday to Rodney Henwood, Mark Kelly and Matthew Taylor – the Pompey players from the Blues’ past born on this day.

Henwood was well before my time, in fact not even known by name to be honest – I didn’t see too much of Kelly as he was playing a little before my time watching Pompey regularly.

As for Taylor, well he needs no introduction does he? A hero of mine, I was gutted when he left and I am still disappointed he has never come back but was also a tad sad by his celebrating in front of the Pompey fans against us at West Ham a few years back. Then again players come and go with him one of our best in the modern era, dare I say of all time?

Now onto the games previously played.

Played – 13
Won – 4
Drawn – 3
Lost – 6

I do recall a few of the games played but can only claim the one myself but what a game to claim.

AC Milan at Fratton Park, who would have dreamt that – competitive – game was ever possible? What a night, what an atmosphere and what a result, which could have been even greater but for the late Milan fightback. Easily in my top three games, anywhere, and probably my personal best at Fratton.

What are your memories of Henwood, Kelly and/or Taylor 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?

  • 08,99&82…08 famous of course,shame we didn?t get a famous win &82 we went up that season but look at the crowd 9,000 very poor & we had a good team to watch….Kelly & Taylor..loved Matty, good player & scorer of great goals

  • One of my faves from recent years. The great Matt Taylor. Scored some fabulous long range goals & created a few. So many fond memories of the guy.
    There in 99 and 08 when we should have beaten AC Milan.
