MANCHESTER City fans turned the Brook Street Club blue last Monday night as they came in their numbers to see and hold the coveted Premier League and Charity Shield trophies.

The silverware was accompanied by the club’s life president Bernard Halford, and former City keeper Alex Williams, who mixed with the fans and answered questions about players past and present.

With more than 50 years associated with the club, Mr Halford has seen many ups and downs, and recounted stories from several generations, which will have pleased the audience who represented a similar mix of generations.

Mr Halford praised the club and the turnout, and in particular the work of the youngest supporters club chairman in the country – Will Smyth, who attends Knutsford Academy.

Kevin Jardine, from the supporters club, said: “It was a great family event, and as importantly we raised £300 for the City in the Community charity.

“It was fantastic to see so many local supporters, and especially so many young fans. We were all delighted to have the trophies here in Knutsford, and we look forward to them returning many more times in the years ahead.”

If you are interested in joining the Knutsford Official Supporters Club contact Will Smyth by email at Knutsfordbranch@gmail.com or by phone on 07954 131702.

Membership costs £5 per season for adults and £1 per season for under 16s and over 65s.

For such a massive club, with a massive fan base, surely they need a bigger more massive place for their massive branch of loyal followers than the relatively small Brook Street place?. I suggest the Conservative club, as it is massive. Its a fitting building for the loyal, proud followers that follow Manchester City. Its obviously just a suggestion. Thanks, - Seb.
