On this day: Foden off the mark and City land first FAWSL title

Looking at events, games and moments that happened this day in our history...


Phil Foden scores his first City goal in a 3-0 Carabao Cup win at Oxford United. Gabriel Jesus opens the scoring just before the break and Riyad Mahrez adds a second on 78 before Foden strikes in added time, before racing away to celebrate with the travelling City fans.


A Katie Chapman own goal and a Toni Duggan penalty secure a 2-0 win over Chelsea to clinch City’s first ever FA Women’s Super League title. Nick Cushing’s side knew a draw or better was enough to finish champions but City finish in style to end the campaign unbeaten after 16 games and five points clear at the top.


Carlos Tevez’s 59th-minute solo goal is enough to give City a 1-0 win over Chelsea as Mark Roberto Mancini’s side remain fourth in the Premier League. The victory comes on the back of a disappointing 2-1 Carling Cup defeat at West Brom and proves City are serious Champions League contenders.


Flower-seller and uber-Blue Helen Turner passes away. A Maine Road regular, Helen was one of the club’s most famous fans and was famed for ringing her bell through the highs and lows of club’s past. She was remembered by the fans for the friendship she formed with legendary goalkeeper Joe Corrigan; they would regularly chat pre-match and she would always hand him a sprig of heather for good luck. Being invited onto the pitch with the team after City’s League Cup triumph in 1976, as well as receiving a standing ovation when her bell rang out for the final time at Maine Road in 2003, is testament to Turner’s loyalty. Her longevity as a fan highlights how she was intertwined with much of City’s history.


Mike Sheron grabs City’s only goal in a 1-0 victory over Sheffield United at Bramall Lane. The victory, watched by 20,067 fans, lifts the Blues up two places to 16th in the Premier League and is Sheron’s third of the campaign – making him top scorer.
