On This Day – March 26: Billy Meredith strikes twice to sink Luton

On March 26 in City history…

1898: Manchester City get the better of Luton Town, beating the southern side 2-1. Billy Meredith scored both of City’s goals, with the legendary outside forward going on to make 394 appearances for City.


1983: City fans leave Maine Road hugely frustrated after a 1-0 loss to Ipswich Town. The game was witnessed by a crowd of 21,845 at City’s former home, and it was also the last season in which club legend Dennis Tueart played for the club.

Happy Birthday: Michael Frontzeck (52), Paul Bosvelt (46), Jimmy McMullen (1895-1964)
