Looking back through the history books for the events, signings and memorable matches that happened on this day in City’s history.
Saturday 12 July 1990
Tony Coton joins City from Watford for a fee approaching £1m.
The highly-rated goalkeeper becomes the Blues’ No.1 and rarely misses a game during his first three years at Maine Road, before a knee injury begins to affect his form. He eventually joins Manchester United in 1996, becoming a goalkeeper coach after retiring as a player. Hero to zero in one move!
Tomorrow: Joe Mercer is appointed as City’s new manager in 1965
