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.

5/1/1952: Paul Gilchrist

From the Ed


Happy birthday to Paul Gilchrist - the Pompey player from the Blues' past born on this day.

I do know of Gilchrist from name but cannot say I saw him in action - not that I can recall anyway - for Pompey.

Now onto the games previously played, ahead of the one at Doncaster tonight.

Played - 12
Won - 8
Drawn - 2
Lost - 2

I recall each of the last three FA Cup ties well - a couple better than one I'd like to forget - but it's a second day running I draw a blank.

What are your memories of Gilchrist from his Pompey days? Also have you taken in any of the games previously played today - if so what are the memories from them too?

08,85,80&74....&17 on TV...08 ticked off Portman Rd & saw us on the road to glory...85 a 0-0 what I remember from that game was how old & slow Gerry Francis looked( I remembered more for scoring & playing for England), 80 was part of the 3 games v Wimbledon( 2 away & I went to all 3) ...& 74 was one of the most dramatic games at Fratton,similar to Oxford's father Xmas game, we were 3-1 down with not long left & we scored 2 late goals, with a last kick penalty from Kellard & we won the replay....saw Gilchrist's play & score

Rotherham - New York Stadium - 20th January

A point last weekend wasn't bad, even though Pompey held the lead. However, having lost at Bristol Rovers and drawn with Scunthorpe a play off push could do with a Rotherham win.

Nathan Thompson's performance was seen as the best one from a Pompey player against Scunthorpe last Saturday.
