On This Day: Steve Potts scores his only goal for West Ham United


Taking a look back at a classic West Ham United moment on this day in history, in association with RoadX Tyres...

Rarely has a goal been so warmly welcomed in Boleyn Ground history than Steve Potts’ strike against Hull City here in October 1990.

In 505 first-team appearances for West Ham United, the reliable defender scored just once, in a 7-1 Division Two thrashing of today’s visitors Hull City on this day in 1990.

The goal helped West Ham to one of the biggest victories in the Club’s long history and the largest since an 8-1 home success against Newcastle United during the Boys of ’86 season five years previously.

It also helped Billy Bonds’ side continue their outstanding start to a season that would culminate with promotion back to Division One after two seasons in the second tier.

Enjoy Pottsy's memorable moment again here!
