The amazing story of LE TISSIER's first goal

Matt Le Tissier signed his first professional contract for £100 per week at the beginning of the 1986/87 season. He made his first team debut in a friendly at Exeter on 8th August 1986. Matt Le Tissier also appeared in a testimonial for Nick Holmes against Benfica at The Dell. His competitive bow came as a substitute in a 4-3 defeat at Norwich on 30th August 1986. The gifted youngster was deployed on the right hand side in his early years. On 2nd September 1986 he made his first start at The Dell in a 2-0 win over Tottenham but Le Tissier was mostly confined to the bench for the next few months. He scored his first two goals in a 4-1 League Cup thumping of Manchester United on 4th November 1986. In a Littlewoods Cup third-round replay at the Dell, Southampton thrashed United silly. Saints blew their visitors away. George Lawrence opened the scoring in the first half with a 20-yard smash. On 71 minutes, Danny Wallace was set up by Colin Clarke to make it 2-0. Then an 18-year-old forward called Matthew Le Tissier turned up to unveil an art piece called harbinger: he scored his first club goal with a saucy lob over Chris Turner then added a fourth with a close-range header. We all know what happened next, Red Devils boss Ron Atkinson was sacked as a result, making way for a certain Alex Ferguson... All the goals of this historic game with the two first goals of Mattew LE TISSIER, the last game on Ron Atkinson and the beginning or Sir Alex Ferguson era :
