Gallery and Video Special: 2006 League One Title Celebrations

Looking back at a memorable day at Roots Hall!

6 May 2020

Blues were crowned League One champions on this day in 2006!

Steve Tilson's side had confirmed their second successive promotion the weekend before with a 2-2 draw away at Swansea City.

And Wayne Gray's late strike against Bristol City on 6th May, 2006 was enough for all three points and with it, first place ahead of Essex rivals Colchester United in the final standings.

Shaun Goater's swan song appearance after a glittering career fittingly ended in style as he joined, Kevin Maher, Steve Tilson, Freddy Eastwood and co by lifting the trophy at Roots Hall in front of a capacity crowd.

Take a look through our extensive match gallery of that historic day above.

And treat yourself to 11 minutes worth of highlights and celebrations from the day below!
