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.

10/10/1936: Ray Pointer
10/10/1939: Willie Morrison
10/10/1959: Vince Hilaire
10/10/1963: Bjorn Kristensen
10/10/1970: Dean Kiely
10/10/1993: Jayden Stockley

From the Ed


Happy birthday to Ray Pointer, Willie Morrison, Vince Hilaire, Bjorn Kristensen, Dean Kiely and Jayden Stockley - the Pompey players from the Blues' past born on this day.

Pointer and Morrison were before my time with Hilaire known well but not someone I can say I was able to see in action for Pompey - Kristensen is another that I didn't see too much of in a Blues shirt but was a player I liked.

Kiely was a tad unlucky to be against a 'Hollywood 'keeper' - as he called David James - but in his time with us he did well and his part in keeping the Blues in the Premier League will never be forgotten.

Meanwhile, Stockley had his moments during a mixed time when on loan from Bournemouth.

Now onto the games previously played.

Played - 14
Won - 5
Drawn - 2
Lost - 7

Again not too many games played in the past 20 years or so, therefore few opportunities for me to take in a game but I can still claim the most recent one.

However, in all honesty I cannot remember much about the win at Cambridge in 2015 as the pre-match beverages - what a mix we had - started to cloud the game but do remember the victory and enjoying it.

What are your memories of Pointer, Morrison, Hilaire, Kristensen, Kiely and/or Stockley 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?
