Book calls for your 1986 Wembley memories

Fans have been invited to contribute their memories to a new book about City's cup triumph in 1986.

The author wants to hear from supporters about their take on the day which saw City beat Bolton Wanderers 3-0 in the Football League Trophy final -  then as the Freight Rover Trophy; now the EFL Trophy - 32 years ago on May 24th.

Their memories will form the publication's final chapter, to be titled 'I Was There'.

Glyn Riley twice netted that day, with Howard Pritchard also on target in London.

Contributions should be no more than 250 words, detailing personal experiences of going to Wembley and watching the game, rather than talking about the match itself. These can be emailed to the author Richard Latham at karrob50@hotmail.com.

Richard, a sports reporter over the last 40 years, is planning to complete the 40,000-word book, which will be hardback, packed with photos and memorabilia by the end of May with a view to publication later in the summer.

City are the most successful club in the competition, having won it three times in their history: 1986, 2003 and 2015.
