One of City’s greatest player’s, County Durham born, Colin “The King” Bell appears in action on the front cover.
City went on to win 1-0, with Fallowfield born City legend, Neil Young scoring the winner.
Tragically Neil Young lost his fight with cancer in 2011. He was 66 years old.
City’s homeground in this period was Maine Road in Moss Side, playing there from 1923-2003, before there move to the City of Manchester Stadium in Bradford and now renamed the Etihad Stadium after its sponsors Etihad Airways.
Maine Road stadium was demolished in 2004, after more than 80 years of football history and having been host to arguably Manchester City’s greatest teams, for which Colin Young was very much apart.
