On This Day – March 22: City down Everton to reach the FA Cup final

On March 22 in City history…

1969: Manchester City strike late in the FA Cup semi final with teenager Tommy Booth’s goal enough to secure victory over Everton at Villa Park. City went on to play Leicester in their seventh FA Cup final a month later.

2003: City are absolutely humiliated by Chelsea as Claudio Ranieri’s side win 5-0 at the City of Manchester Stadium before 41,105 fans. Chelsea outclassed City and a young Frank Lampard scored one of their goals, years before he would turn out in the lighter shade of blue.

Happy Birthday: Derek Jeffries (65)
