The top 22 clubs in the country broke away from the Football League to form the Premier League which began on this day. As a result the Football League renumbered its divisions so whereas in 1991/2 we had been in Division Two we were now in Division One, but were still in the second tier. To differentiate from what came before I’ve added the word ‘new’ to the Football League divisions we were in from 1992-2004, when they were re-branded and the second tier became known as the Championship.
Goalkeeping howlers, Malcolm Allen sent off and a penalty.
