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!
