Kiddo A Blue Again After 30 Years On Tour



Manchester City have today announced the appointment of former striker Brian Kidd as Technical Development Manager of the MCFC Academy...

The Collyhurst born Kidd is something of a legend in the Manchester area having bagged shedloads of goals for both The Blues and the rags as well as having been Sir Taggart's Number Two through most of the 90's.

City's Football Administration Officer Brian Marwood told the official site:

'Brian has vast experience at both Club and International level and will help maintain the excellent development programme we have in place at the Academy. As a top class coach he was much in demand when it became clear he wasn't going to stay at Portsmouth and we are delighted that Brian has chosen to come and work with us. I know he scored nearly 50 goals in his playing days at Maine Road and is greatly admired and respected amongst our fans.'

Meanwhile, new Academy manager Andy Welsh said:

'I have worked with Brian before and he is both an innovative and forward thinking coach who is amongst the best around. The players and the coaches here are looking forward greatly to working with him. Brian will be a huge asset to us.'

Here's to Kidd's return to The Blues co-inciding with a repeat of City's 1977 top two finish the year after his arrival from Arsenal in 1976!
