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.

4/1/1915: Leonard Beaumont
4/1/1986: Younes Kaboul
4/1/1993: George Thorne
4/1/1994: Miles Storey
4/1/1995: Adam Webster

From the Ed


Happy birthday to Leonard Beaumont, Younes Kaboul, George Thorne, Miles Storey and Adam Webster - the Pompey players from the Blues' past born on this day.

Beaumont was well before my time - too early for anyone - in fact but I recall Kaboul, Thorne, Storey and Webster very well.

Kaboul - still in the Premier League with Watford I think? - was a very good defender and captain with Pompey wasn't he. Thorne and Storey had mixed loans with the Blues but both added something - probably Thorne more so - in their time at Fratton Park.

It's a shame we couldn't keep hold of Webster a little longer but it was hardly a surprise he is no longer a Pompey player.

Now onto the games previously played.

Played - 11
Won - 6
Drawn - 2
Lost - 3

Not many games played today and those that have haven't been that plentiful in the last 20 years or so meaning I draw a blank. However, I do recall a fair few - often FA Cup ties - from this day in history.

What are your memories of Beaumont - too early for anyone, Kaboul, Thorne, Storey and/or Webster 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?
