At the end of the 2002-03 season, Wolverhampton Wanderers finished in 5th place in the First Division, but then went on to secure their place in the Play-Off Final against Sheffield United.
If Wolves were victorious, they would be promoted and in the Premier League for the very first time. In fact, they had been outside the top flight of English football since the 1983-84 season, suffering three consecutive relegations before rising back up from the Fourth Division in the 1987-88 season. So it’s safe to say that 26th May 2003 was a huge occasion for the Black Country side.
It turned out that it was Wolves’ day, winning 3-0 and putting all three goals past Sheffield United in the first half, while proudly sporting Admiral.
