30 in 30: Remembering City’s last game at Maine Road

To commemorate 30 years of the Premier League, we today continue our new video series celebrating 30 key City moments during that historic timeline.

Last time out, we looked at a truly exciting moment - Pep Guardiola’s first game in charge of City.

This time around, it’s a bittersweet occasion as we delve into the archives to feature our last ever game at Maine Road.

Though we lost the 11 May 2003 match 1-0 to Southampton, it was an unforgettable occasion for those lucky enough to be there.

Hear from captain on the day, Shaun Goater, our manager Kevin Keegan, winger Shaun Wright-Phillips and Nedum Onuoha, a youth player at that moment but who offers us his viewpoint as a supporter.

There are also archive interviews with Coronation Street actors and City fans, Sally Lindsay and Bruce Jones as well as respected author Colin Shindler, who all talk through their feelings about an emotionally-charged occasion.

There’s also wonderful footage of our fans on that incredible day – and a proud rendition of Blue Moon as the players make their way around the pitch for the final time.

Look out for more significant moments in City’s Premier League adventure in the coming weeks and months ahead.

Check out our video feature above, which gives you a nostalgic look back at the game...
