Saturday 3 May 1986

This was a very big day for sport.  In the Rugby League Challenge Cup Final from Wembley, Castleford defeated Hull KR by 15 points to 14 in a closely contested match.  Across London in the Borough of Kensington and Chelsea, Kenneth Mathieson Dalglish scored the only goal of the game as Liverpool won their 16th First Division title.  In his first season as player-manager, Dalglish himself had set his team up for the classic ‘Double’ of League and FA Cup in the same season.  The FA Cup Final was a week away.

In Division 2, Shrewsbury Town beat Middlesbro 2-1 –  a result that saw Boro go down to Division 3 and Shrewbury stay up.  They managed to  maintain their place in the Second Division until 1988-89 when they completed a west Midlands relegation triumvirate with Birmingham and Walsall.  Try saying that without your teeth in…
