LEE SHARPE MANCHESTER UNITED HOME FA CUP FINAL 1994

Lee Sharpe's match worn Manchester United home shirt from the 1994 FA Cup Final against Chelsea at Wembley Stadium on 14th May 1994. This shirt was worn by Sharpe as a second half substitute, when he replaced Denis Irwin in the 84th minute, in the 4-0 defeat of Glenn Hoddle's Blues. This shirt was purchased through auction, when Sharpe put up his collection of match worn shirts up for sale in 2009.

Sharpe entered the contest with United in a commanding three nil lead. After a goaless first half in which Chelsea edged the contest, a brace of penalties from Eric Cantona, the first on the hour and a Mark Hughes strike in a 9 minute spell put United out of reach. Brian McClair, also a second half substitute, added a fourth in injury time. The Cup Final win added to the Premier League title gave United their first League & Cup domestic "double" success, becoming only the 4th team in the 20th Century to complete this feat.
