In response to the wishes of our fans, Manchester City are dedicating the FA Cup visit to Leicester City to all-time great and Hall of Fame member Neil Young.
It was Young’s trusty left foot that fired the Blues to glory in the Wembley final against the Foxes in the 1969 final.
That was just one of 107 goals that Young bagged in a glittering Blues career that encompassed more than a dozen years and 412 games in all competitions.
Sadly, Neil has been ill for some time and was recently diagnosed with terminal cancer. Our supporters want to pay tribute to a true club legend, so in Neil’s honour we are producing red and black scarves for the trip to Sven-Goran Eriksson’s Leicester City on January 9.
All fans who have bought a ticket to the game have received a voucher that entitles the bearer to a red and black scarf when a donation is made to support the family of Neil Young and the Cecilia Centre, Wythenshawe Hospital.
Scarves will now be available for collection from the afternoon of January 6, and not January 1 as previously anticipated. Scarves will be subject to availability and allocated on a first come, first served basis.
Fans wishing to help Neil directly can visit www.mcfcsc.com and the paypal button is on the home page.
