A decade on from our unforgettable 3-2 victory over Queens Park Rangers, the Club held a series of events to celebrate Sergio Aguero’s 93:20 goal and the dramatic achievement of Roberto Mancini’s 2011/12 squad.
The day kicked off with an executive lunch at the Etihad Stadium, where club representatives, partners and members of the playing squad were in attendance.
That evening, 2000 fans headed to Manchester’s Mayfield Depot to remember that iconic moment alongside Aguero, Gareth Barry, Gael Clichy, Nigel de Jong, Micah Richards, Joleon Lescott and Pablo Zabaleta.
In recognition of their hard work over the last 10 years, the Official Supporters Club executive committee were invited to share a table with former City captain Andy Morrison at the executive lunch.
General Secretary Kevin Parker was joined by Alan Galley, Carol Darvill, Howard Burr, Mike Young, Christine Wardle, Bing Findlater and John Morgan and, that evening, five branches were honoured at the fan event.
Alkrington, Chicago, Harrogate, North Wales and West Lakes all formed during the 2011/12 season and were welcomed on stage where they were presented with commemorative gifts to mark their 10th anniversary milestone.
“On behalf of all the Committee, can I say a big thank you for the wonderful afternoon spent at City for the 93:20 lunch,” said Parker.
“The bond between City and The OSC continues to grow because of events like this.”
Our 93:20 celebrations also provided us with an opportunity to reward two members of the Official Supporters Club family.
After winning a competition for taking part in a Q&A with Lescott, Angie Gallo of the Sydney branch was flown over to Manchester to attend the fan event and received the surprise of her life when she was greeted by the former players in attendance.
Meanwhile, Bob Frendt of the Harrogate branch had the opportunity to watch the final game of the season against Aston Villa from Oleksandr Zinchenko’s private hospitality box at the Etihad after the full-back learned of the humanitarian relief he has been providing in Ukraine.
Bob has arranged shipments of medical equipment and mattresses to be sent to Ukrainian citizens and continues to raise funds to deliver his charitable donations.
