On this day, two decades ago, Nigel Spackman was appointed as manager at Sheffield United.
He had been caretaker gaffer after Howard Kendall had upped sticks and left the Blades.
He didn’t last long at a time when financially-struggling United were forced into selling their best players like top scorers Jan Åge Fjørtoft and Brian Deane.
Spackman had himself played 24 games of the club.
The 56-year-old went on to manage Barnsley for a short time.
Now he mainly does media work.
