Biography: Blakey was the cornerstone of many a Pompey defence in the 1980's. Born in Kingston, Jamaica, his 6ft 2in frame provided an intimidating challenge for opposing strikers. After 168 appearances in a Pompey shirt he moved on to Leeds United in 1988. It was at his last club, Exeter City, where he made his first management step when he was appointed player-manager in 2000. He has since made a name for himself as a successful youth coach. Currently lives in Newcastle-under-Lyme and works as one of the Football Association's A's coaches and works with the England youth teams as well as helping educate new coaches.
