This seems like a week that Portsmouth fans need cheering up, so here’s a reminder of olden days: a beautiful programme from 1956, featuring what Portsmouth is best known for, its naval heritage: H.M.S. Victory was Lord Nelson’s ship in the Battle of Trafalgar, and is now docked in Portsmouth as a wonderful museum ship.
This fixture also had considerable historical significance, as the first English league game played under floodlights; the only thing missing was the actual victory part for Pompey fans, as Newcastle beat Portsmouth 2-0.
