On this day in history...23rd May




A look back at this day in history, and what was happening with Pompey courtesy of our sister site PompeyRama.

No games on this day previously... so I thought what else could have happened in Pompey history on this day and referred to Roger Holmes` excellent book 'On this day`. Drew a complete blank there as it is one of the few dates where Roger`s research turned up blank. Maybe something will happen today to break that trend - news of a takeover perhaps.

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...

23/5/1980: Theofanis Gekas

3/5/1972: Aidan Newhouse

3/5/1913: Bill Rochford
