On this day in 1949 Pompey became league champions for the first time.

A 2-1 win against Bolton Wanderers at Burnden Park sealed the league title with three matches still to play.

Peter Harris and Ike Clarke scored the goals in the first half.

With thanks to the Pompey History Society, here is a picture gallery of the great champions and the celebrations.
