Biography Reg was the first local boy to play league football for Pompey, making his debut when deputising for Tommy Rowe a week before the 1939 Cup Final. A Royal Marine in war-time, but based locally, Reg was a regular in the first team throughout the hostilities and played in the 1941/42 War Cup Final. He also made a solitary appearance for England in a wartime international against Wales in September 1944. On the resumption of league football, Reg, who was solid on the ground and a master in the air, became a dominating influence in the side during the early post war era and captained it during both championship seasons making 63 appearances in total. When his playing career drew to a close, he joined the coaching staff until he entered management at Stockport County in 1960. He later managed Bournemouth & Boscombe Athletic and Hastings United before leaving the game for good.
