Ex-City stalwart dies

Manchester City’s youngest-ever player Glyn Pardoe, who made his first team debut at 15 years and 314 days in 1962, has died suddenly at the age of 73, the English Premier League club said yesterday. Pardoe, who started as a forward and ended as a defender, helped City win the league title in 1968, the FA Cup in 1969 and also scored the winning goal in the 1970 League Cup final against West Bromwich Albion. He was also in City’s triumphant European Cup Winners’ Cup team of 1970. City paid tribute to “one of our greatest servants” on its website. Pardoe spent his entire career at City, making his debut against Birmingham City as a forward but finding a more permanent role as a left-back from 1966.
