Match Summary Pompey complete the first post-war season in the cricket season with Southsea beach recording record ice-cream sales! Twenty thousand sun bathe at the Park and watch a disappointing home defeat to Derby. With Dickinson away playing for the Navy County took advantage and Raich Carter scored the winner early in the second half. After the game the news broke that manager Jack Tinn had resigned after taking the club to four Cup Finals in thirteen years (1929,1934, 1939 and 1942). The board immediately appointed Bob Jackson, Chief Scout, as Tinn's replacement - the seventh boss in forty nine years!
