Down memory lane – 26 Portsmouth area football team photos from 1982-1984

Here are 26 football team photos from the Portsmouth area taken between 1982 and 1984. Judging by the state of the envelope, we’re guessing most haven’t been seen for decades.

Most of the pictures have names, but some haven’t. Hopefully you, dear reader, can help fill in the gaps?

Some teams were camera-friendly more than others; both Portsmouth Royal Navy – the forerunners of today’s United Services Portsmouth – and Horndean, for example, had their team picture taken twice in 1983/84.
