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.

11/1/1925: Jimmy Scoular
11/1/1988: Simon Ferry

From the Ed


Happy birthday to Jimmy Scoular and Simon Ferry - the Pompey players from the Blues' past born on this day.

Scoular is a name I know of very well but he was before my time so I didn't see him play.

However, I remember Ferry well and thought he was a decent enough player. Couldn't keep himself fit though could he...it was still a surprise when he left out of the blue for Dundee - I think it was - wasn't it?

Now onto the games previously played.

Played - 13
Won - 5
Drawn - 2
Lost - 6

This is again a day we've not seen too many games in recent times but I do recall some of them - not managed one though.

What are your memories of Scoular - probably too early for anyone - and/or Ferry 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?

14,03,86&75....14 was a trip to tick off the Kassam & an unforgettable match..03 a rare defeat on our way to the championship, can't recall anything about 86 but 75 was memorable.We were playing the league leaders & we were 1-0 down at HT, but a barnstorming 2nd half saw us score 4 goals with Sunderland scoring a late consolation, it was also George Graham's 100th League goal....Of the b'days Scoular is a legend of course & my Dad used to tell me lots of stories about him & Ferry was a battler & I did see him score at Burton in a 2-1 win
