A genuine Leeds United museum piece. Lee Chapman’s goal scoring match shirt from Bournemouth away which secured the Division 2 title, promotion back to the top flight, started a riot and probably saved an even bigger one.
The shirt was acquired by a supporter during the pitch invasion which followed the final whistle. It has been subsequently signed “Good Luck” by Chapman on the right shoulder.
The triangular pattern is positioned differently on each away shirt, as you can see from the image of Chapman walking out of the tunnel, the pattern is identical.
