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.

5/2/1915: Eric Jones
5/2/1927: Dan Ekner
5/2/1960: Micky Hazard
5/2/1976: John Aloisi
5/2/1986: Manuel Fernandes

From the Ed



Happy birthday to Eric Jones, Dan Ekner, Micky Hazard, John Aloisi and Manuel Fernandes – the Pompey players from the Blues’ past born on this day.

Both Jones and Ekner were well before my time and unknown to me. Hazard played at Fratton Park before my time but I know of him well. However, from his time with others really.

I do recall Aloisi – and enjoyed him on the South Coast – and Fernandes well. The latter had a ‘strange’ Pompey career with his transfer odd from the off as a was it wasn’t it permanent transfer, which it ended it wasn’t.

Now onto the games previously played.

Played – 15
Won – 8
Drawn – 3
Lost – 4

I recall a number of the games and can claim just the one myself. Cannot remember that much about it but know I was at Fratton for the draw with Derby in 2011.

What are your memories of Jones, Ekner – both probably before the time of anyone reading, Hazard, Aloisi and/or Fernandes their Pompey days? Also have you taken in any of the games previously played today – if so what are the memories from them too?
