THE HALF DECENT FOOTBALL MAGAZINE

18 January ~ In October 1990 Hull City travelled to Upton Park to face an unbeaten West Ham in Division Two. Future Leeds manager Dave Hockaday levelled for the visitors after Jimmy Quinn had given West Ham the lead, but it was to go downhill for Hull from then on. Just 20 seconds later they were 2-1 down after a rare Steve Potts goal, while a couple for Julian Dicks, another for Quinn and one each for Trevor Morley and George Parris earned the home team an impressive victory. West Ham eventually won promotion, though a 2-1 defeat to Notts County on the final day meant they had to settle for second place. Hull meanwhile were relegated and didn’t return to the second tier until 2005.
