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.

21/1/1949: John Collins
21/1/1980: Dave Kitson

From the Ed


Happy birthday to John Collins and Dave Kitson - the Pompey players from the Blues' past born on this day.

Collins was before my time and cannot say I was familiar with him but Kitson I remember - admit I wish I sometimes couldn't - well from his spell at Fratton Park.

Now onto the games previously played.

Played - 12
Won - 6
Drawn - 1
Lost - 5

I'm a little superstitious at times, so a little worried about '13' being an unlucky number when we eventually play it - this should have been against Crawley in 2016 but the game was postponed on the day. I wouldn't have travelled anyway, which again means I can recall games but not claim one.

What are your memories of Collins and/or Kitson 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?
