The Blues boss was victorious that day in the Fratton Park dugout as his newly-inherited squad came from behind to snatch all three points from Paul Cook’s Ipswich.

A 32nd-minute James Norwood strike put the visitors ahead, before goals from Tom Naylor and Marcus Harness saw Pompey snatch victory.

After replacing Kenny Jackett in March, Cowley would manage the final 12 games of last term, narrowly missing out on the play-offs on the final day.

A summer of transition was soon to follow and only four members of the Blues’ current team featured in his first match in charge.

We take a look at the first squad Cowley named in his maiden game at the helm at Fratton Park and what those players have gone on to do since.
