Dennis Tueart was part of a thrilling trophy winning City team of the 1970s and one of the men in the boardroom at the height of the club’s more recent changes.
He was amongst the first wave of stars to make football glamorous in the United States and will be forever remembered for THAT Wembley overhead kick.
The ‘King of all Geordies’ as he was heralded from the terraces in his playing days has an interesting and diverse tale to tell and it is all chronicled in his new book: ‘My Football Journey’.
Every twist and turn of his career both on and off the field in football is documented in the piece and the royalties are all going to the teenage and young adult cancer unit at The Christie in Manchester.
Dennis, still an avid follower of the Blues, will be a guest at the Newcastle United game on 19 November (12.30pm) when he will conducting a signing session in the store at the Etihad Stadium.
He will also be in WH Smiths in Sale on 28 October, in Smiths in the Arndale Centre on 5 November, Waterstones in Stockport on 16 November and that company’s branch in Wilmslow on 26 November.
Watch out too for one of his appearances at a host of City supporters’ clubs.
Dennis Tueart: My Football Journey is published by Vision Sports Publishing.
