Pompey’s home fixture against the Tangerines on the 7th April 1973 will forever be etched in my mind.The clarity of events from that day came flooding back to me, as they have done so often over this past near half-century!The game itself was fairly non-descript (just like Saturday).A 1-0 win was secured by Ray Hiron’s early second-half strike, against high-flying Pool.Those two points eased Pompey’s perennial relegation plight, which seemed de rigueur throughout the 1970s!Watching Pompey back then was just about the most exciting thing any 11-year-old Fratton boy could possibly do!Usually during matches, my attention would be fully focused upon the action!But during this particular game my concentration levels had waned and I felt myself entering … [Read more...] about North Stand Critic: The day Portsmouth striker Ray Hiron breathed a sigh of relief!
