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.

5/1/1952: Paul Gilchrist

From the Ed



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

I do know of Gilchrist from name but cannot say I saw him in action – not that I can recall anyway – for Pompey.

Now onto the games previously played, ahead of the one at Doncaster tonight.

Played – 12
Won – 8
Drawn – 2
Lost – 2

I recall each of the last three FA Cup ties well – a couple better than one I’d like to forget – but it’s a second day running I draw a blank.

What are your memories of Gilchrist 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?

  • 08,85,80&74….&17 on TV…08 ticked off Portman Rd & saw us on the road to glory…85 a 0-0 what I remember from that game was how old & slow Gerry Francis looked( I remembered more for scoring & playing for England), 80 was part of the 3 games v Wimbledon( 2 away & I went to all 3) …& 74 was one of the most dramatic games at Fratton,similar to Oxford’s father Xmas game, we were 3-1 down with not long left & we scored 2 late goals, with a last kick penalty from Kellard & we won the replay….saw Gilchrist’s play & score
