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.

12/9/1899: Percy Cherrett
12/9/1941: Bob Widdowson
12/9/1953: Paul Smith
12/9/1977: David Thompson

From the Ed


Happy birthday to Percy Cherrett, Bob Widdowson, Paul Smith and David Thompson - the Pompey players from the Blues' past born on this day.

Cherrett - too soon for anyone - and Widdowson were before my time and unknown to me too.

Thompson didn't have long with Pompey with him better known for teams before us you would think with Smith spending a few years with us without being that involved too much. However, I recall both.

Now onto the games previously played.

Played - 20
Won - 3
Drawn - 6
Lost - 11

What a bad day, 11 of the 20 ahead of the trip to Northampton this evening have been lost.

I'll not be at Sixfields so will remain with just the one myself - that being the meeting with Barnet at Fratton Park in 2015 when the Blues won.

What are your memories of Cherrett - obviously too early, Widdowson - who was probably before anyone, Smith and Thompson 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?

15,89,87,81&78...Good win in 15,remember 87 as Quinny said it was the best goal he scored for Pompey,a screamer from way out in the Milton End...Only Thompson of the birthdays & he was mainly used as a sub
