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...

20/4/1928: Norman Uprichard
20/4/1958: Laurie Milligan
20/4/1967: Alan McLoughlin
20/4/1971: Nicos Kyzeridis

From the Ed


Happy birthday to Norman Uprichard, Laurie Milligan, Alan McLoughlin and Nicos Kyzeridis - the Pompey players from the Blues' past born on this day.

Uprichard was before my time as was Milligan. But I recall McLoughlin VERY well from his playing and coaching spells with Pompey, as I do Kyzeridis during his brief spell in the last 90s under Alan Ball.

Now onto the games previously played.

Played - 17
Won - 7
Drawn - 3
Lost - 7

Literally, nothing in it today as 7 of the 17 games have been won and 7 lost - the remaining 3 drawn.

I can claim the last two - a 3-0 win over Sheffield United at Fratton Park in 2013 and the one before that at the Etihad Stadium against Manchester City in 2008, a 3-1 loss.

What are your memories of Uprichard - I would think too early, Milligan, McLoughlin and Kyzeridis from their Pompey days? Also have you taken in any of the games previously played today - if so what are the memories from them too?

Happy Birthday to Macca, a great player & true gent. Remember the radio commentry in 85 as we lost an important game at Palace when challenging for promotion. There for the games in 87 when Plymouth spoiled our Easter & damaged another promotion chase. There in 92, 96 & 13.
