Andy Morrison at City Square for Fulham

Cult hero and former inspirational City skipper Andy Morrison is the star guest at City Square prior to the Fulham game.

Morrison will be interviewed on stage at 4.30pm where the powerhouse former centre-back will look back on his time with the Blues.

'Mozzer' was the City skipper for the 1999 play-off  final against Gillingham and helped turned the Club's fortunes around when he arrived on loan from Huddersfield Town during the 1998/99 Division Two campaign.

He scored on his debut against Colchester and was signed for just £85,000 immediately after. He managed three goals in his first six games for City - not bad for a centre-half!

Former boss Joe Royle credits Morrison as dragging City "kicking and screaming" out of the third tier of English football with his uncompromising, no frills captaincy.

He stayed at Maine Road until 2002 when a knee injury forced his early retirement - the City fans, however, have never forgotten his part in the Blues' revival or the back-to-back promotions to the Premier League while he wore the skipper's armband.

Andy will be happy to sign any copies of his new hard-hitting and critically acclaimed autobiography 'The Good, The Mad and The Ugly' after the interview. The book will be available at the stadium City Store, priced £8.99.
