One famous game stands out there for me. I doubt however many of you but it was back in 1976 when the original SOS Pompey campaign, backed by The News on September 14 at a packed meeting in Portsmouth Guildhall ( yes I was there) thirty five years ago. The meeting with many leading Pompey fans present set many targets and one of them was for a five figure gate against Reading the next week and they got it!

Read more and this and other stories in this morning`s issue of Sunday Toast.

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...
