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.

Mick Kennedy

From the Ed

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

Kennedy, although before my time and not someone I saw in action for Pompey, is a name from our past I know, as most will, well.

Now onto the games previously played.

Played – 21
Won – 9
Drawn – 3
Lost – 9

Not a lot in it today, well, nothing in fact with the same amount of wins to defeats.

I wasn’t at the impressive win at Dagenham in 2016, but I do recall it and others very well. I can claim the Fratton Park draw with Preston in 2011 though.

What are your memories of Kennedy 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?
