Jack Foxton played just once in the final game of the first season after WWII. Not much known about him. Jack was a left half who had previously been at Bolton. He was at Pompey for four years and on being released moved to Swindon He was a munitions worker who joined Pompey straight after the war an played nineteen times in the 45/46 season which was not league standard.

Pompey 1-0 Southend - report & highlights

My first game in some weeks, Southend wasn't the best game yet it was by far the worse - most importantly the points were secured thanks to Brett Pitman's latest goal for Pompey.
