Memorable moments that happened on this day in City’s history...
Friday 8 June 1928
Johnny Hart is born in Golborne in Cheshire. Hart goes on to fill almost every role imaginable at City during his lengthy career, signing from Loughton Youth Club in 1944 and waiting several years before finally breaking into the first-team. His 73 goals in 178 appearances is an average better than a goal in every three games, but injury robbed of him of further progress and a broken leg, sustained prior to the 1955 FA Cup Final all but ended his playing career with Hart just managing to clock up 11 appearances during the final seven years as a player. Hart would later manager City for a short time in the early 1970s before ill-health took its toll.
