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.

8/2/1900: Angus Meikle
8/2/1938: Terry Foley

From the Ed


Happy birthday to Angus Meikle and Terry Foley - the Pompey players from the Blues' past born on this day.

Both Meikle and Foley were well before my time so I never saw them in action for Pompey. I doubt many - if any - would have seen either for the Blues in fact.

Played - 14
Won - 6
Drawn - 6
Lost - 2

Only the one game for me today - a draw at St James Park against Exeter in 2014.

What are your memories of Meikle - before the time of anyone of course - and/or Foley - probably before the days of anyone reading - 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?

2 games for me & a 15 goal feast. Sadly went to Ipswich in 1992 & despite a young talented Jim Smith side, got stuffed 5-2 by another young talented team. 2003 with Jim as assistant to Harry we crushed Derby 6-2 as the promotion machine was in full force.
