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.
31/7/1949: Brian Turner
Happy birthday to Brian Turner – the Pompey player from the Blues’ past born on this day.
Turner was before my time and I cannot claim to know too much about him aside from the same.
Played – 1
Won – 0
Drawn – 1
Lost – 0
Well, it’s very rare to see a competitive game played in July but Pompey have managed that and remain unbeaten, albeit from only one game.
Not that I can claim the 1976 meeting at Oxford.
What are your memories of Turner from his Pompey days? Also have you taken in the game previously played today – if so what are the memories from it too?
