Memorable moments that happened on this day in City’s history...

Saturday 14th June 1947:

City complete the latest finish to season ever by thrashing Newport County 5-1 at Maine Road. 

One of the severest winters on record meant a log-jam of fixtures towards the end of the campaign and results in the last game being played in mid-June. 

George Smith wasn’t complaining as he bagged all five goals for City. A crowd of 24,300 watches in their shirt sleeves!
