On this day 50 years ago Manchester City were crowned European Cup Winners Cup champions.

A Joe Mercer side full of men who would go on to cement their status as City legends defeated Polish outfit Gornik Zabrze 2-1 at Vienna’s Prater Stadium to lift what remains the Club’s only continental title.

Having won the League Cup earlier that season, first half goals from Neil Young and birthday boy Francis Lee paved the way to glory.

Stanisław Oślizło would pull one back for Gornik 22 minutes from time, but City held on to claim a historic win.
