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.

8/2/1900: Angus Meikle
8/2/1938: Terry Foley

From the Ed



Happy birthday to Angus Meikle and Terry Foley – the Pompey players from the Blues’ past born on this day.

Both Meikle and Foley were well before my time so I never saw them in action for Pompey. I doubt many – if any – would have seen either for the Blues in fact.

Played – 14
Won – 6
Drawn – 6
Lost – 2

Only the one game for me today – a draw at St James Park against Exeter in 2014.

What are your memories of Meikle – before the time of anyone of course – and/or Foley – probably before the days of anyone reading – 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?

  • 14&03…14 was to tick Exeter off my list,yet another late goal cost us a win…& 03 the Yak was on fire as we ripped Derby up…no bdays for me today but I?ve got a win

  • 2 games for me & a 15 goal feast. Sadly went to Ipswich in 1992 & despite a young talented Jim Smith side, got stuffed 5-2 by another young talented team. 2003 with Jim as assistant to Harry we crushed Derby 6-2 as the promotion machine was in full force.
