Biography Jimmy made a single appearance for Pompey in November 1949, replacing Jimmy Scoular. Built in the same mould, he moved on the following summer to Colchester United, playing just shy of 200 games, scoring 15 goals. He is one of the two surviving players from the championship winning seasons still with us (January 2020).
