Join us for a chorus of “Feed The Goat and he will score…” as we celebrate Shaun Goater Day!
On this 21 June 2013, we pay tribute to a true Manchester City legend.
With 103 goals in 189 games, Goater became an iconic figure over the course of his five year association with the club and can be considered one of greatest goalscorers to ever wear the sky blue shirt.
Why today? Well, Bermuda’s most famous son was toasted with the first "Shaun Goater Day" after he was awarded the freedom of the island on 21 June 2000.
Some 13 years later, Shaun is arguably one of the club’s most influential players in recent history, thanks to his goals which helped to fire City back into the big time after years in the abyss.
But it isn’t just goals that make Shaun’s legacy so enduring with supporters, but also his fun-loving personality, generosity and passion for the game.
These qualities and his commitment to raising footballing standards across the board in his home country earned Shaun an MBE for services to sport and young people in 2003.
Through words, pictures, infographics and videos, we’ll be attempting to do justice to The Goat’s incredible contribution to our club all day long.
We need your help though, so share your memories of The Goat with us using the #goaterday hashtag on Twitter and share your pictures with Shaun using #meandthegoat.
