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.

2/1/1977: Gavin Mahon

From the Ed



Happy birthday to Gavin Mahon – the Pompey player from the Blues’ past born on this day.

I do recall Mahon but cannot say I remember him doing much – besides being sent off – from his brief time at Fratton Park. What he did at former clubs – most notably Watford – is where I best know of him to be honest.

Now onto the games previously played.

Played – 20
Won – 9
Drawn – 3
Lost – 8

I didn’t make the Luton game in 2017 but can still claim three on this day.

Saw the win over Watford at Fratton Park in 2012 and draw with Coventry – also at Fratton – in 2010 in the FA Cup as well. The third game – also in the FA Cup – came back in 1999 when we won at Nottingham Forest thanks to Stevie Claridge’s goal at the City Ground.

What are your memories of Mahon 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?
