On this day in history...17th July
A look back at this day in history, and what was happening with Pompey courtesy of our sister site PompeyRama.
No Pompey games have previously played on this day.
Due to this lack of games, well, none of them it will be straight onto the other feature - again courtesy of PompeyRama - looking at those Pompey personalities - past or present - who have a birthday on this day.
17/7/1940: Keith Blackburn
Happy birthday to Keith Blackburn - the Pompey player from the Blues' past born on this day.
I know of Blackburn by name but admittedly I do not really know much about him as a player or person.
His footballing career also came too early for me to have seen Blackburn play any football be that for Pompey or anyone else.
What are your memories of Blackburn from his Pompey days?
