Court Outside

Description: Thousands of ticketless Leeds United supporters outside Dean Court in the second division clash with AFC Bournemouth. United were playing Bournemouth on the last day of the 1989-90 season. A win would give Wilkinson's men the second division title and with it promotion back to the top flight of English football after dwelling for 8 years down in the second tier. Bournemouth also desperately needed the points as a loss would see the team relegated to third division. It was the Whites who managed to score the only goal in a close game with Lee Chapman heading home from a Chris Kamara cross. The win sent the thousands of Leeds United fans into raptures and sent Leeds Utd back to where they belong. The crowd on that memorable day was 9,918 with over half coming to see the men in white.

Leeds United: Day, Sterland, Beglin, Jones, Fairclough, Haddock, Strachan, Kamara, Chapman, Davison, Speed.
Subs: Shutt for Davison, Batty for Shutt.
