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.

From the Ed


A birthday free day, which doesn't happy often but as this is the case we move straight onto the games previously played today ahead of the one this afternoon.

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

I do recall a large number of these games on this day but can only claim the one myself - Devera didn't score many goals for Pompey, which isn't surprising as he was a defender, but a game that he did score in was the most recent one at Fratton Park in a win over Shrewsbury in 2015.

What are your memories of Lawler 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?

Fine, for a temporary option

Such is his ability Jackett decided to switch Clarke to the problematic left back spot against Blackpool - this isn't a permanent solution for the former Ipswich man though.
