History Makers

15 August 2017

It's 25 years ago today that Brian Deane scored the first ever Premier League goal.

In front of the Kop, five minutes into the clash against Manchester United, Deano ghosted in unchallenged from the back post to head home past Peter Schmeichel, after Carl Bradshaw's long-throw from the right hadn't been cleared at the near post.

Fans favourite Deane netted a second from the spot, after Gary Pallister had fouled Alan Cork and despite a goal from Mark Hughes the Blades hung on for a 2-1 famous victory.

The actual matchball from 15 August 1992 now sits proudly in United's Legends of the Lane Museum.
