GK: Jamie Ashdown
Some goalkeepers deserve a mention for some of the performances they produced during the last ten years for Portsmouth with the likes of David Forde, Luke McGee and current number one Craig MacGillivray amongst those. However, in here is Jamie Ashdown.
Ashdown was Portsmouth’s number one keeper in the first season that we are concerned with for this list in 2010/11, with him having been re-signed by the club on a two-year deal after David James had left. The keeper went on to make 50 appearances for Pompey in all competitions during that campaign. Whilst he was also able to break a post-War record going 636 minutes without conceding between February and March 2011.
The following campaign, Ashdown was again the number one for the first nine games of the campaign, before ultimately being displaced by Stephen Henderson. However, once the keeper had left the club he was reinstated to the starting line-up. Unfortunately, he could prevent the club’s relegation to League One and he left at the end of the 2011/12 campaign.
