Memorable moments that happened on this day in City’s history...
Wednesday 20th June 2001
Kevin Keegan wastes no time in finding a dressing room leader when he signs Stuart Pearce on a free transfer from West Ham United. With City hoping to get back to the Premier League at the first attempt, Pearce is installed as captain and signs a one-year deal, taking on coaching responsibilities, too. It will prove to be a wise move by Keegan as Pearce soon proves there is life in the old dog yet.
