Looking back through the history books for the events, signings and memorable matches that happened on this day in City’s history.
Saturday 9 July 1983
Dennis Tueart leaves City for the second time, joining Stoke City on a free transfer. Tueart had returned to the Blues from New York Cosmos two years earlier after a couple of unforgettable seasons in The Big Apple and was welcomed back with open arms by his legion of admirers at Maine Road. He managed 30 goals in 91 appearances during his second spell with City but relegation to Division Two meant his wages were too expensive as the club sought to slash costs.
