On this day in history...21st May

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

Fri 21 May 1982
Div 3 Millwall H 2-2
Doyle 2 (2p)
Att:4,902

End of season fare and a tiny crowd too - in fact only one smaller in Pompey history. Bobby Doyle score two penalties and that would be bettered by Kevin Dillon in November 1986 when he hit hat-trick of penalties in a Full Members Cup Tie against Millwall!!

Tue 21 May 1963
Div 2 Chelsea A 0-7
Att:54,558

At the end of the worst winter on record - Pompey did not play a league game between Boxing Day and 23 February - Chelsea need to win to clinch promotion. They 'manage` it with four goals from Hayling Islander Bobby Tambling and one from future owner Terry Venables.

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...
