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.

2/2/1912: William Kennedy
2/2/1951: Alan Garner
2/2/1969: Tim Sherwood
2/2/1994: Michael Drennan

From the Ed



Happy birthday to William Kennedy, Alan Garner, Tim Sherwood and Michael Drennan – the Pompey players from the Blues’ past born on this day.

Kennedy was well before my time – that of anyone – and isn’t really known to me. Garner was also before my time but I recall Sherwood – probably more so for his spells with others – and Drennan from his loan spells with Pompey.

Now onto the games previously played.

Played – 11
Won – 2
Drawn – 4
Lost – 5

I can claim the one game today but that ended – in one of the five defeat – in a loss at Colchester in 2013. I did enjoy that game though I must say and thought we played some very good footie and was positive about the season ahead. However, it didn’t work out that well did it…

What are your memories of Kennedy – too soon for anyone, Garner, Sherwood and/or Drennan from his Pompey days? Also have you taken in any of the games previously played today – if so what are the memories from them too?

  • Back to 1980 and Kenny Todd’s only Pompey goal. The famous game is of course Barnsley when Prosinecki got a hat trick – the date 2/2/02

  • 16,13,08,91,85,&80…16 a long trip to Morecambe to tick it off my list & that gutting last min equaliser by the goalie. 08 was my only point v Chelsea, a win in 91 & Todd’s only goal for us in 80…saw Garner, Sherwood & Drennan…I liked Garner, Sherwood as OK & I loved Drennan’s half volley at Dagenham
