On This Day: Jon Harley's debut rocket at Sheffield United


Taking a look back at a classic West Ham United moment on this day in history, in association with Basset & Gold...

Jon Harley celebrated the occasion of his West Ham United debut with an unstoppable long-range shot in a thrilling 3-3 draw at Sheffield United on 17 January 2004.

The left-back, who had joined from Fulham on loan, came back to haunt his old club with a rasping 25-yard strike at Bramall Lane.

Harley's goal helped the Hammers come from behind after Paul Peschisolido had put the Blades in front, putting West Ham ahead following Michael Carrick's equaliser.

Marlon Harewood made it 3-1 to Alan Pardew's side before goals from Paul Shaw and Phil Jagielka either side of Stephen Bywater's penalty save from Michael Tonge secured a dramatic point for the hosts.
