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.

17/11/1922: Jack Froggatt
17/11/1938: Brian Carter

From the Ed


Happy birthday to Jack Froggatt and Brian Carter - the Pompey players from the Blues' past born on this day.

Both well before my time - probably that of any to be honest - but are not completely unknown. However, Carter isn't the one I'm familiar with but Froggatt is, by name anyway, is, in fact this is a famous name in football really.

Now onto the games previously played.

Played - 11
Won - 5
Drawn - 2
Lost - 4

Not many played in the past 25 years or so at all really but - not that I can recall much about it - I can claim the most recent as I was at Fratton Park for the defeat against Doncaster in 2012.

What are your memories of Froggatt and/or Carter - I am convinced both would be too early for anyone? - 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?

1984, saw Wright & Bright tear us apart & we held on for 1-1. Boro gave us a good stuffing in 90 & a good win over Citeh in 2001.

You always need scrappy wins

I am keen to be entertained when I go to football, which hopefully results in a Pompey win. However, at times you accept the points are the main thing - like Bury on Saturday.
