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.

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.
