Looking back through the history books for the events, signings and memorable matches that happened on this day in City’s history.

Saturday 12th July 1990

Tony Coton joins City from Watford for a fee approaching £1m. The highly-rated goalkeeper becomes the Blues’ No.1 and rarely misses a game during his first three years at Maine Road, before a knee injury begins to affect his form. He eventually joins Manchester United in 1996, becoming a goalkeeper coach after retiring as a player. Hero to zero in one move!
