Here’s a throwback to the days of bootlace ties, rollneck jumpers and even a waistcoast – the perfect attire for a Pompey footballer.

Lifelong Blues fan Terry Brown, from Paulsgrove, took this photograph at a function given for the supporters’ club at Fratton Park in the 1960s.

Before I name them, you might want to look away now (from what follows below) to see how many names you can get. Score double if you can put a name to the half-face on the right-hand edge.

From the left we have: goalkeeper Ray Potter, Ray Hiron, Albie McCann, George Ley, Frank Haydock and Nicky Jennings.

And the half-face? It’s George Smith who managed the club from April 1961 until April 1970 taking them out of the third division in 1962.
