We have an exclusive copy of "Joe Mercer, OBE: Football With A Smile" to give away.

Written by well known City author Gary James, this acclaimed book covers the highs and lows of the life of Manchester City's most successful manager - from his birth in Ellesmere Port, right through to his struggle with Alzheimer's Disease and subsequent death in 1990.

Whilst at City, Joe created a side of true quality and skill, returning the glory days to Maine Road. A history of success the Blues are rightly proud of.  During his time in Manchester the Blues won a major European trophy, the League Championship, the FA Cup, the League Cup and the Second Division title within 5 years of his arrival.  More importantly though, together with his right-hand man Malcolm Allison, he created a side that oozed class and entertained wherever they played.

To stand a chance of winning the book, email your answer to the following question to competitions@mcfc.co.uk, marking your entry 'Joe Mercer comp'.

Q: In what year did City win the League Championship under Joe Mercer?

The winner will be notified on Friday 28th May. Only one entry per person.

"Joe Mercer, OBE: Football With A Smile" is available at the CityStore. For more information, visit the James Ward Publishing facebook page.
