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.

7/3/1953: Ian Purdie
7/3/1979: Andy Griffin

From the Ed



Happy birthday to Ian Purdie and Andy Griffin – the Pompey players from the Blues’ past born on this day.

Purdie came before my time but I recall Griffin – from his Pompey days and before and after – pretty well. He didn’t have the best of times with the Blues but I still feel we saw much, much worse with Griffin given a raw deal at time?

Now onto the games previously played.

Played – 17
Won – 7
Drawn – 4
Lost – 6

A blank day for me today as the only one I was meant to be doing – a defeat at Birmingham in 2000 – had to be missed due to the late Ken Malley coming down with food poisoning and being unable to drive.

What are your memories Purdie and/or Griffin from their Pompey days? Also have you taken in any of the games previously played today – if so what are the memories from them too?
