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...

17/2/1935: Reg Cutler

From the Ed


Happy birthday to Reg Cutler - the Pompey player from the Blues' past born on this day.

Cutler is known to me be name but that is it as he was well before my time.

Now onto the games previously played.

Played - 12
Won - 6
Drawn - 4
Lost - 2

A good day today as we've won 6 of the 12 games previously played. Well, a very good day in fact considering Pompey have also drawn for and only lost 2.

Recall a few of the games played - including the win at Preston in 2008 from our FA Cup winning season - but can claim only the one. However, being at Fratton Park for the 1-0 win over Stockport in 1998 wasn't a bad one!

What are your memories of Cutler - maybe too early for anyone - 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?

There for the home games in 1990, 96 & the wall of sound evening game in 98. Fond memories of our watching our top of the table match with arch rivals Leicester in 2003 & that wonderful long stike by Matt Taylor. Another game on tv was the cup win at PNE in 2008, when Jamo saved a penalty & we won by a very starnge own goal.
