To celebrate what would have been Mike Doyle’s 67th birthday tomorrow, the Club is delighted to announce the induction of his 1969 FA Cup winner’s medal into the Stadium and Club Tour, as part of a month long display in recognition of a true City legend.
The Club’s most decorated player with a total of 558 appearances to his name and 40 goals for the Blues, Doyle won the coveted medal when City beat Leicester 1-0 at Wembley.
The medal was presented to Club Captain Vincent Kompany before City’s 6-0 win over Spurs, by Mike’s grandson Thomas Doyle, who himself is captain of the Academy under 11s.
First team captain, Vincent Kompany said:
“It was an honour to induct Mike Doyle’s FA Cup medal into the Stadium and Club Tour. Mike was not only a legend at the Club, but a fantastic captain, held in high esteem among the players and the fans alike. To receive the medal from his grandson Thomas, who also wears the captain’s armband like his granddad, was fitting to both Mike and the family who are City through and through.”
Originally from Ashton-under-Lyne, Doyle became a City legend in a career spanning more than 17 years at Maine Road, where he won:
- Football League First Division championship: 1967–68
- Football League Second Division championship: 1965–66
- FA Cup 1969
- European Cup Winners’ Cup : 1970
- Football League Cup winner: 1970 & 1976
- FA Charity Shield winner: 1968 & 1972
